Scientist Monica Gagliano has been researching plant communication and shares about how her research has been guided by listening to plants and studying their behaviour. She believes, like many scientists and environmentalists do, that in order to promote planetary health we have to understand ourselves as part of the natural world, and plants provide numerous pathways towards this understanding.

In this New York Times article, Ellie Shechet interviews Dr Gagliano about her scientific and personal journey, touching upon plant medicine and its place in today’s world, and exploring the conflicting scientific viewpoints on plant ‘intelligence’.
