Where can a single plant take you?

In recent years an interdisciplinary nexus has been generated around what it means to experience life as a plant. Thus, plant enquiries are crossing disciplinary boundaries. The everyday life of a plant can appear to be static and silent to human perception. And yet, as modern science narratives tell their stories, we are realising that plants live in complex, and often social worlds. Removing plants from the human view makes it easier for us to exploit them and appears accordingly to reduce our ability to see into their worlds. In our research studies we ask how, by taking a different view through an interdisciplinary lens, might we improve our understanding and sensitivity to the lives of plants?

Current Research Studies:

1.Beyond Plant Blindness: Seeing the importance of plants for a sustainable world (2015-2017) 

2.Herbarium 3.0 (2017-2018) with Tina Gianquitto Colorado School of Mines, USA
