Specifically, we are talking about high goldenrod. For example, according to the authors, the leaves of a damaged plant change the reflection of red light. This SOS distress signal can be heard by family members at a distance. Once warned, they can strengthen their defense mechanisms against predators by producing defensive compounds to fight the insects. Scientists believe this process is similar to the immune system of animals.

Thus, goldenrods not only integrate information from the environment, but also anticipate future conditions, preparing for them based on the current environment.

Goldenrods do not have a nervous system, but their cells are connected by chemical signals, allowing them to respond as a unit. Scientists say this plant response is more than just a reflex or a fixed pattern of action.

The authors emphasize that the issue is not giving the plant the title “intelligent”, but how it achieves this without a nervous system. The results of the study were published in the journal Plant Signaling and Behavior.
