Thinking like a vegetable: how plants decide what to do

Professor Ottoline Leyser delivers this year's Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award Lecture.

Plants monitor and process a wide range of information from their environment. Having no brain, information processing is distributed across the plant body and much of this is achieved through the action of hormone signals which interact to integrate information and control specific responses, such as the number of branches a plant makes.

Professor Leyser will discuss this decision making process and reveal how it allows plants to adapt to their environment.
