In Human Nature, I though it was interesting how hull explained that trees have “special biochemical responses to physical injuries”. It reminded me of Avatar, where Grace talks about the sacred trees having chemicals that communicate with one another. Hull says, the trees leak chemicals that were caused by the injuries and these chemicals warn the trees around it. I didn’t believe before that trees or plants would or could feel pain until I read this. It makes me think that people should be more aware of these processes. Trees should be preserved to a certain level but unfortunately, I think we as humans still need to cut down trees as part of our needs for survival. There should be some sort of balance.
