Comment on 'Lack of evidence for associative learning in pea plants'.
Gagliano M., Vyazovskiy VV., Borbély AA., Depczynski M., Radford B.
In 2016 we reported evidence for associative learning in plants (Gagliano et al., 2016). In view of the far-reaching implications of this finding we welcome the attempt made by Markel to replicate our study (Markel, 2020). However, as we discuss here, the protocol employed by Markel was unsuitable for testing for associative learning.
