Decision-Making: Are Plants More Rational than Animals?


Schmid, Bernhard (2016). Decision-Making: Are Plants More Rational than Animals? Current Biology, 26(14):R675-R678.

Abstract

A new study presents a novel experimental design and allows a test of risk sensitivity in plants. Faced with a choice between constant and variable resource supply, they make a rational decision for the option that maximizes fitness, a fact rarely observed in animals.
