The Unexpected Plant: Beyond the Animal Model

Stefano Mancuso is a founder of the study of plant neurobiology, which explores signalling and communication at all levels of biological organization, from genetics to molecules, cells and ecological communities.

He is a professor of Plant, Soil and Environmental Science at the University of Florence, ItalY and co-founder of the LINV (the International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology).

As this talk from MAD1 proves, Stefano works to transform our view of plants from simple organisms to complex ecological structures and communities that can gather, process, and share important information.
