Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 103 Krissy Eliot

December 30, 2020

As we end the year, we welcome back Krissy Eliot to discuss the possibilities of the intelligence of plants. Krissy has just written a fantastic article for Edge Science magazine that looks in to the potential for sentience in plant life.

Whilst these cutting edge theories have been on the fringes of science for centuries, more and more scientists are uncovering some rather intriguing evidence to suggest we know next to nothing about the world of plants and how they actual live.

We cover numerous experiments, discuss the reality of plant networking, support, the response to predators even when unable to see or feel them and many other weird and wonderful discoveries covered in Krissy's outstanding article.

Krissy's website is here:
