Miguel Segundo-Ortin and Paco Calvo, Plant sentience? Between romanticism and denial: Science
The hypothesis that plants might be sentient confuses the notion of sentience (or consciousness) with that of sensing. Sentience/consciousness implies feeling, experience, and subjectivity. Sensing does not. Plants can sense/detect and even respond appropriately in the absence of any sentience/consciousness.
