Michael Pollan talks Talking-Thinking Plants

A really lovely article (and video as well - see below) by Michael Pollan about re-thinking whether or not plants are a little complicated than we give them credit for. I won't spoil it, but there's lots of juicy tidbits about chemical communication, as well as a fun discussion of the rancorous debate about the term 'plant neurobiology'.
