Do Animals & Plants Think & Feel?

Animals think? Plants feel? Fungi communicate? Yes, they do! In the last few decades the research of biologists, botanists and mycologists has revolutionized our understanding of the capacities of our fellow creatures on planet Earth. In this short course, we will explore through lectures, discussions, and short readings and videos the amazing things that animals, plants and fungi can do. We’ll also consider how our relationship with living things is changing, now and into the future, as our understanding and appreciation of them grows.
