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

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