Let your plants listen to music! | SiOWfa Science in Our World: Certainty and Controversy
From Foreword, page 7: Many reasons, of course. In my case it is to put down chronologically the story of the phenomenon of the effect of music on plants and to clear up some misconceptions and misquotes which cannot help but happen when the various news media and publications excerpt from a long article about the report of my experiments. I mus From Foreword, page 7: I must confess I have another reason to put these thoughts down on paper. It is to clarify that music is my avocation–being a wife, mother, and grandmother is my profession–and that all forms of life from plants, to people, to planets are of deep and abiding concern to me.
I realize there may not be a correlation between the effects of music on plants and on humans; this would have to be proved by scientific standards. However, after documenting the results of my scientifically controlled experiments at Temple Buell College, I felt free to speculate on the possibilities of such a correlation. I ask the reader to be aware of the existence of a division between the scientific description and the philosophic discussion.
The amazing way in which all of this came to me, and the subsequent interest and worldwide recognition of the phenomenon through the news media, without any effort on my part seemed to point to a larger God-given idea. So it is with awe and reverence for the Creator of all life that these words come from my pen.

A Study in Music: Episode 1 (Dorothy Retallack, Music and Plants)
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Feb 23, Sarah Miller rated it it was amazing.
I loved this book. It was fascinating to read about her studies with plants and music. Even though the scientific community would classify her experiments differently than cold hard science, there are correlations in her work that cannot be ignored.
Dec 13, Jessica rated it did not like retallacck Shelves: Those 5-star ratings have to be retallacm woman’s kids. I can’t even begin to imagine the publishing house that thought it was a good idea to make this book available to the masses.
It’s worse than pseudoscience and the author herself reminds us at least half a dozen times that she is a musician, not a scientist. The writing is awful dofothy mostly of quotes from other people and a description of the most uncontrolled “scientific” experiment ever to be believed by most of the world. The first and Those 5-star ratings have to be this woman’s kids. The first and last chapters are experiment related while the rest of the book details the history of music in religion.
The nicest thing I can say about this book is that it is very short. It probably should be required reading as a cautionary tale.
