Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
Plants are so incredible in so many ways, one of the things I have found the most fascinating about plants is the fact that when faced with a change in their environment or a hungry animal plants can't get up and run away. Instead they can sense the danger and they respond with a whole chemical arsenal. This can be either quick, like a mimosa plant closing its leaves, or slowly through evolution like toxic plants that have evolved complex chemical pathways to make all kinds of poisons, deterrents (bitter tastes), or mind controlling substances. In some cases in the face of lack of resources plants like the resurrection plant can go dormant for many years until conditions are more favourable.
