Hi Class!

Just read this interesting New Yorker article by Michael Pollan that follows a group of scientists who are seeking to prove that plants are a lot more like us than most people realize, capable of learning, memory, cognition and computation! I thought that this was incredibly relevant for the ecofeminist argument against specism. Skim through the article if you get a chance to take a break from finals week.
