Plant Accommodation to Their Environment: The Role of Specific Forms of Memory
A plant germinates and becomes established in a particular place, which remains its permanent location and where it must respond to signals generated by the dynamics of all kinds of external conditions. By putting together old and new data originating from physiology, ecology and epigenetics, it is inferred that the so-called “learning” and “storage/recall” forms of memory are fundamental to the fitness of plants.
