Christopher Brown's timbre may sound less than ideal to some listeners, but his interpretations are clear, and he's in sync with the author's passion for the intelligence he sees in the incredibly diverse plant kingdom. Paco Calvo argues that plants may not have centralized brains like higher animals but often have communication systems that allow them to adapt, remember, anticipate, and act in sophisticated and even intentional ways. Calvo's perspectives are both philosophical and biological. He quibbles with the dismissive ideology and word choices people use to describe plant vs. animal functioning, bemoaning humans' longstanding lack of attention to plants. His stories about what some plants can do compared to simple animal organisms will change that to appreciation and respect. T.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
