Improvement of article[edit]

I have improved this article with reliable sources, two of these sources are:

  • Galston, Arthur W. (1974). Commentary: The Unscientific Method. By Ignoring Accepted Rules of Evidence, the Authors of a Popularized Book on Plants Reach Many False Conclusions. BioScience 24 (7): 415-416.
  • Galston, Arthur W; Slayman, Clifford L. (1979). The Not-so-secret Life of Plants: In Which the Historical and Experimental Myths About Emotional Communication Between Animal and Vegetable Are Put to Rest. American Scientist 67 (3): 337-344.

Basically, I am quite shocked why these sources were never mentioned on the article. The book is complete pseudoscience and it is a little disappointing how none of these critical sources were cited on the article. HealthyGirl (talk) 12:45, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
