THE LIGHT EATERS How the Unseen World of Plant Intelligence Offers a New Understanding of Life on Earth

by | Read by Zoë Schlanger

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Journalist Zoë Schlanger gives a clear, engaging, and enthusiastic narration of her fascinating audiobook all about the controversial topic of plant intelligence. Schlanger's own sense of wonder comes through clearly as she visits botanists around the world--sometimes going into the field with them--and reports on the results of their research on plants and the amazing things they can do. Plants can mimic the appearance of other plants; they can trick pollinators into trying to have sex with them. But can they see, or remember? Do they have consciousness, or agency? Science is still trying to figure that out. Like Schlanger, listeners will never look at their houseplants the same way again. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
