 “How trees talk to each other”

 

Our next TED talk features Forest Ecologist Suzanne Simard’s talk entitled, “How trees talk to each other.”

"A forest is much more than what you see," says Suzanne. Her 30 years of research in Canadian forests have led to an astounding discovery -- trees talk, often and over vast distances, to each other. In fact the root systems among trees is vastly like our Internet.  And a mother tree is in almost constant communication with her offspring.

Learn more about the harmonious yet complicated social lives of trees and prepare to see the natural world with new eyes as well as change the way you think about forests.  This talk has had over 3 million viewers in 2 years, an astounding number.  So we hope you will join those 3 million and us for this fascinating talk.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a

variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.

 

Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.

 

A discussion will take place after the lecture.
