During the past decade, scientists studying plants’ lives have discovered some unexpected and interesting behaviour, including sensitivity, memory, communications and rudimentary dialogues, choices, anticipation, mutual assistance and family solidarity, resilience, decentralized structures and more. So it appears that it may be reasonable to use the word “intelligence,” and many authors are already doing so. Yet the term is so closely associated with humans that it deserves to be discussed and perhaps even redefined.
