Plant revolution

Le piante hanno già inventato il nostro futuro


The essay by Stefano Mancuso, a world-renowned scientist, explains how in order to improve our lives we can not avoid to be inspired by plants. Because plants are sophisticated and evolved social organisms that offer the solution to many technological problems, and they are also much more resistant than animals.

Plants have extraordinary adaptability, can live in extreme environments, camouflage themselves to escape predators, they move without consuming energy, they produce chemical molecules in order to manipulate the behavior of animals (and humans).

Real living networks, plants are organisms built on a model totally different from ours. Plant Revolution illustrates how in the plant world there are already technological solutions that we have to take into account for our future.
