Plants Are like People

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Plant Science: An Introduction to Botany

Plants Are like People

Taught by Professor Catherine Kleier | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Although our biology is significantly different than that of plants, scientists are discovering more and more similarities.  We share quite a bit of DNA, thrive in moderate temperatures, have a circadian rhythm of rest and activity, require water for life, and can sense our environment and respond.  Some scientists suggest that plants might even have developed a type of “hearing.”
