Plants Can Tell When They're Being Eaten
Eating a leaf off a plant may not kill it, but that doesn't mean the plant likes it. The newest study to examine the intelligence (or at least behavior) of plants finds that plants can tell when they'...

Photomorphogenesis
In developmental biology, photomorphogenesis is light-mediated development. The photomorphogenesis of plants is often studied by using tightly frequency-controlled light sources to grow the plants.
