    “Trees know when deer are eating them — and how to fight back”
    Trees might sense when deer are eating them, but I think it’s a far stretch to say they ‘know’.
    Or else we risk diluting the term too much to have any meaning at all.
    Knowing probably requires a nervous system of some sort; fast and fairly accurate information processing and memory are needed.
