    (EBOOK/EPUB) Verde brillante This is not as kooky a book as it appears I really like one of the fundamental ways this is argued we are intensely anthropocentric and so we really define “intelligence” as “most like humans” We might not say it in so many words but that’s really the beans of it That’s a pretty circular definition when applied to ourselves isn’t it? Thinking about this reminds me of Ender’s Game a bit The buggers Beca

    (EBOOK/EPUB) Verde brillante This is a manifesto rather than a textbook by one of the chief scientists in plant behavior who seeks to convince the reader that plants are indeed intelligent creatures rather than life forms barely above the minerals The author and his research have taken a lot of criticism based on the assumed fact that plants cannot be conscious so this is a subject he feels very strongly about He points out that our evaluation of intelligence derives

SUMMARY ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ¹ Stefano Mancuso

READ Verde brillante 108 SUMMARY ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ¹ Stefano Mancuso Ation Mancuso challenges our notion of intelligence presenting a vision of plant life that is sophisticated than most imagine Plants have much to teach us from network building to innovations in robotics and man made materials but only if we understand about how they live Part botany lesson part manifesto Brilliant Green is an engaging and passionate examination of the inner workings of the plant kingdom Financial support for the translation of this book has been provided by SEPS Segretariato Europeo Per Le Pubblicazioni Scientifich. This small book by an Italian scientist and science journalist makes the case that plants have been underestimated and that they have a kind of intelligence They convinced me but only for some definitions of intelligenceThe book begins with a survey of ideas about plants in the past The three major monotheistic religions mostly ignore plants though Mancuso and Viola point out that Judaism forbids the gratuitous destruction of trees and has a holiday to celebrate their new year Most philosophers and scientists before the 20th century didn t think much of plants either but Democritus Linnaeus and Darwin suspected there was in them than met the eyeThe authors soon build a dichotomy are plants social organisms sophisticated and highly evolved like us p 36 Or are they closer to the mineral world than to animal life p 37 8 Surely those are not the only choices I didn t believe either of these possibilities before reading the book and I didn t believe either of them when I finished the bookElsewhere in the book however Mancuso and Viola use a reasonable formulation Intelligence is the ability to solve problems p 126 They note the most obvious difference between plants and animals that plants are stationary at least for most of their lives They are therefore subject to predation by herbivores and therefore cannot have centralized specialized organs that an animal could eat and kill the plant So just as plants have a decentralized circulatory system without a central heart to pump fluids throughout their bodies they also have a decentralized nervous system without having a central brain The middle of the book which is the most informative describes how plants solve problems in their lives often by means analogous to what animals do Mancuso and Viola demonstrate that plants have a sense of sight a sense of smell a sense of taste a sense of touch a sense of hearing 15 other senses including a sense of moisture and a sense of gravityPlants also communicate One part of a plant can communicate with another such as when the roots tell the leaf openings stomata whether to open or not Plants communicate with other plants such as telling each other when an herbivore is near Plants communicate with animals such as when they provide incentives for their moving friends to pollenate them or spread their seedsPlants even sleep a fact Linnaeus was one of the first to notice but still not much is known about why they do soThe book has a few egregious errors of science which make it difficult to trust the authors when they make bold claims We know that the first single celled organisms that appeared on the planet were algae that is the plant kind of living things Through photosynthesis they created the oxygen that enabled life to spread over the earth This included the emergence of eukaryotes or animal cells p 29No both plants and animals are eukaryotes The term refers to organisms with cells having a nucleus and organelles not to the cells themselves Organisms with simpler cells such as bacteria are called prokaryotes It s like saying that if 100 is the total weight of everything alive according to various estimates between 995 and 999 percent is composed of plants Or to put it another way all living animals humans included represent only a trace a scant 01 to 05 percent p 40This seems to be saying that all living things are either plants or animals What about fungi protista bacteria The vectors are bats cheiropteroi in Greek which are used to carry pollen from many American desert cacti such as the Joshua Tree p 109The Joshua tree is a yucca not a cactusDespite some overblown claims for plant intelligence and a few errors this book is worth reading for some solid information about plant capabilities some of which have only recently been discoveredDisclaimer Island Press sent me a free copy of this book as part of their blind date with a book promotionRe posted from Water Librarian s Blog
