FIFTH ANNUAL HUMANITIES INSTITUTE SYMPOSIUM: PLANT INTELLIGENCE

Thursday, March 22, 2018
10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

With Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees and Stefano Mancuso, author of Brilliant Green and Plant Revolution and Janet Browne, Historian of Science, Harvard University (moderator)

Do plants have intelligence? Current advances in research shed new light on the remarkable interior life of plants. German forester Peter Wohlleben and Italian plant physiologist Stefano Mancuso explore the question of plant intelligence using biological evidence to challenge our common perception of plants and nature. Sharing intriguing new findings made in the forest and in the lab, these experts present new paradigms for our understanding of the vegetal world. Harvard’s distinguished historian of science, Janet Browne, moderates the discussion. A booksigning will follow the presentations.

Tuesday, May 17 from 8:30am-5:00pm.

This inspirational seminar will deliver the vision, knowledge and wisdom of four great thinkers. Their brilliance lies in combining fastidious research with artistic sensibility: communicating from the frontiers of their disciplines. Respectively, these scientists are challenging old paradigms. Collectively, by breaking the boundaries between science and art, they offer a powerful insight into natural processes that could change the way we understand, preserve and manage trees.

Speakers: Stefano Mancuso (plant neurobiologist and author of Brilliant Green: The Surprising History and Science of Plant Intelligence), Francis Halle (botanist and plant morphologist), Monica Gagliano (plant cognitive ecologist), Howard Thomas (plant gerontologist). More details here.
