Mark Sinclair has most recently been quoted in an article called Forget Guardians of the Galaxy's Groot: trees can talk and 'tell jokes', say scientists. Mark Sinclair said, “We were unclear exactly what we were dealing with, until we realised that we had discovered the tree equivalent of a practical joke. In one case, a socratea palm managed to convince nearby specimens that a group of hungry beetles was heading their way. Once it sensed the other palms were panicking, it emitted a signal indicating that there was nothing to worry about, followed by what we can only describe as 'a cheeky giggle.”.
