Bennett, Tom (2023) Cognition is not evidence of sentience. Animal Sentience 33(19)
Miguel Segundo-Ortin and Paco Calvo, Plant sentience? Between romanticism and denial: Science
The ability of plants to detect their environment, including other organisms within that environment, is unquestioned. The ability of plants to differentially process, integrate and respond to complex combinations of environmental information could perhaps be described as cognition. But no amount of evidence for cognitive abilities in plants equates to evidence for plant sentience. Nor is plant sentience required to understand or interpret the behaviour of plants in their environment.
