Plants are not mere inanimate entities. They communicate using a unique language of scents both above and below ground, and actively engage with their environment and peers. They support their kin, deter strangers, form alliances, and learn from their past experiences. Below the surface, they establish vast networks of roots and fungi, exchanging nutrients and information, akin to a massive internet formed by plant communities. Reconsidering plant rights raises important questions. Should we respect plants more? Recently, the Swiss Constitution was amended to state that plants have “dignity”. Is attributing dignity to plants an illogical notion? Florianne Koechlin doesn’t believe so.
