Dear fellows,

Does anybody know if plants contain serotonin? I have read an article by
Ronald F. Borne from University of Mississippi where that is claimed to
be the case. However, no reference is given and as I am writing an
article about the serotonin system in the human brain (I am a science
journalist), I would like to know more about this to use it as
background information. Maybe I should say that I tried to reach the
author but without any success.
