Plants do feel and smell!!

Nature Capture

Today I am with amazing findings of Daniel Chamovitz, who is a director of Manna Center for Plant Biosciences, Tel Aviv University. He discovered that plants do feel and smell on the basis of his experimental findings and observations.

Earlier, he found a group of genes which controlled the response and growth of plant in varying sunlight and they seemed to be unique to plants.

His later studies concluded that the same genes are a part of human genome also and were involved in regulating sunlight dependent 24 hours circadian clock of human beings. Besides this, they were involved in cell division, growth of neurons (because of which we are able to sense our environment and respond accordingly) and maintenance of immune system. Thus indicating genetic similarity between the plants and animals.

The animals are mobile i.e. they could move to any place for their safety and as per their…
