Trees can "talk" to each other but we just didn't know how to "listen" until now.

A forest is much more than what you see, says forest ecologist Suzanne Simard from the University of British Columbia. Her research has led to the discovrey that trees talk to each other, often, and over long distances. Simard explains the mutualistic cooperation and complicated communication system that trees use. The interconnected web that is a forest has an underground network to transmit information that is complex and sophisticated. You may view the natural world differently after listening to the chemical ecology that she has uncovered.
