From the BBC:
Plants have a built-in capacity to do maths, which helps them regulate food reserves at night, research suggests.
UK scientists say they were “amazed” to find an example of such a sophisticated arithmetic calculation in biology.
Mathematical models show that the amount of starch consumed overnight is calculated by division in a process involving leaf chemicals, a John Innes Centre team reports in e-Life journal.
Terms like “amazed” and “astonished” (which also appears in the article) often feel like a synonym for “Darwinian evolution might not explain this.”
They never use such terms when they think they have found a Darwinian explanation, however implausible. Which tells you a lot.
