Discover how Plants Talk, Move and Feel

Age group: Elementary School, Middle/Junior High School, High School

Join Greg Clark from the Freshman Research Initiative Cell Signaling team to learn how plants have unexpected abilities to sense and respond to stimuli and "talk with" each other and with animals. Learn how plants sense and respond to changes in their environment and how plants are able to communicate using a chemical language. This presentation highlights these abilities using time-lapse videos and is broken into two sections: Plants are Movers and Shakers and Wondrous Abilities of Plants to Sense Stimuli and Communicate.
