Love the clarity of the instructors deliver which is supported by great explanations and most importantly visual aids & demonstrations. Ps... Especially loved the bloopers at the end. Nice treat! :)
A perfect course to understand all senses of plants in a straightforward way and I must admit the way professor Daniel chamovitz helped me to better acknowledge this course was satisfactory for me.

I just loved it, I did it because I wanted to know more about the plants that I'm growing on my balcony and I ended knowing about DNA, genomes, evolution. I just wished to have had this course in my youth instead of the chemistry and biology I learned on high school, this knowledge is so much meaningful. Thanks Professor, bravo Coursera!

This course was not easy for me, but finishing it meant a great deal. I am happy to be have completed it, as I have learned so much about plants and I found every lecture to be as interesting as the previous one. The way the professor explains the topics is really dynamic and it keeps your attention. Thank you for a cool course on plants.

A very en-lighting course. It highlights the complexity of plant life, shows the common origin of life at cellular level, makes through provoking but scientific comparison between human senses and plant environment awareness. I also bought the book "What a plant knows" (in french), I strongly recommend it as a companion of this course.

Doctor Chamovitz makes learning about the sensory functions of plants entertaining and informative. I felt engaged in the material throughout the entirety of the course videos and supplemental reading. I highly suggest anyone who is seriously interested in this course also acquire the text book to read into the materials even further.

Interesting and thought provoking with lots of nice examples of experiments that reveal what we currently know about plant senses and why we know what we do.Subject of course to future revision in the light of new knowledge and further experimental evidence. "What a plant Knows" also explores the nature of scientific investigation

I knew very very little about plants before taking this course. I didn't even know how to properly care for an African violet indoor plant. The course has given me a lot of knowledge about plant biology. I have since become very respectful of plants and will use the acquired knowledge to tender to the plants in my garden.

This course provided insight into the basic function of a critical part of the world--plants--and gave me a deeper understanding of and a new outlook on this fascinating form of life. Prof. Chamovitz is engaging and entertaining, and his excitement and fascination for the field is contagious. Thanks for the great class.

Was very good. Liked how he whole teaching was rooted in experimental observations. The book that was suggested reading, also by the same instructor, was very helpful. It has really changed the way I look t the plants in my garden, and I hope I get to learn and research more on this topic in the future! Thanks a lot!

I’m just 14 years old and could complete this course Which is a big achievement for me . I want to be an astrobiologist in future and this course has inculcated a fresh wave of interest in me about plant biology.I would like to thank Prof Daniel for a fantastic deliberation . Really enjoyed it sir ...... Thank You!!

Professor Daniel Chamovitz, thank you for such an engaging learning experience. Botany will never be the same for me. I always was so distant from knowing anything enough about plants (as a bioengineer and bioinformatician I felt I have to). It was a pure pleasure to be your student. Looking forward, Evgeniya Lokes

I had not study any biology related since secondary school, but I had always wanted to do some sort of study in botany, this course was great for me. The material is not too hard, specific enough and definitely will give you a new perspective and deeper understanding of plants and the magnificent beings they are.

This course gives a better understanding of plants and gives me an idea of the research questions and type of information/data i might be looking for in an experiment. It gives me an understanding that cuts across both agricultural and biological disciplines and this will greatly impact my career. Thank you

It was a wonderful experience learning from such a fine teacher & expert when time, money and distance do not permit to pursue your dream of Learning. every lecture was so informative, elaborately explained and to the mark. We are lucky to be students of such teachers. Thanks, Coursera to let this happen

A good introduction to the basic senses of plants. This course broadens understanding of plants so that they aren't just seen as unsensing machines but are dynamic and adaptable, aware of and responding to changes in their environments. I recommend reading the book to get the most out of the course.

Not only was the course informative, in depth and well-structured, it was excellently and eloquently presented, keeping my interest piqued at all times. I really had a great time attending and hugely appreciate all the effort that has been put to creating this. Congratulations and gratitude.

This course was amazing. Dr. Chamovitz is such a great professor and the topics of this course were easy to follow. I loved the genetic approach given in this course about plants and the relation to some genes found in humans. The final exam is a bit long but taking the course is worth it.

Wow! This 69-year-old grandma learned so much about how plants react to environmental stimuli, experiments vs pseudo science, the similarities between plants and animals, and historic perspective of research done on plants. Definitely stretched myself. Enjoyed the book, What a Plant Knows.

I can only recommend this course! It is truly inspiring and informative - also for those, like me, who don't have a background in natural sciences. The professor is an efficient communicator and very engaging. I'm very grateful for having this wonderful world of the plants unfurled for me.

I was very pleased with this course. The instructor was engaged, informative and tailored his lectures to his audience and used lots of visuals. The multiple choice could be challenging at times but it was a good refresher on how to take tests - plus - the subject matter was interesting.

I studied biology during my undergraduate, studying both plant and animals but I have never been so interested in plant biology like I am after taking this course and now I can proudly say that my attention has for the most part shifted from animal to plant biology. Thank you very much

Fantastic course that's both challenging and informative! Dr. Chamovitz is outstanding in his video lectures and has a terrific sense of humor! I particularly enjoyed learning how much in common we, human animals, have with plants, and how important our plants are to our survival!

Now I understand better what the plant perceives, and I value its complexity even more. I am very grateful to them for this masterful and wonderful course. I am very anxious to begin the second part of your teaching Professor Daniel Ch. Greetings from South America. Ecuador!

The instructor is enthusiastic, entertaining, and does an excellent job of structuring the lectures to include interesting experiments, big-picture overview, and enough detail to dig deeper. The quizzes supported my learning well, too. Would highly recommend this course.

Daniel Chamovitz is a great lecturer and the course is very interesting! I would recommend it for everyone: for mature persons - to better understand their plants, for youth - to wake up interest in botany (especially if school program is boring as it was at my school).
