Whispering Pines, Murmuring Mycorhizae – Communication in the Forest
Do tree discussions belong in the fantastical worlds of the Wizard of Oz and Avatar, or can new research in plant physiology and ecology support such subtle interactions? Dr. Susan Wood-Bohm will speak about how and when trees “talk” and what these lessons may teach us.
Time & Location
Apr 28, 2021, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
About the event
A healthy forest is a diverse collection of individuals that rely upon each other for resources and protection. Writers like German forester Peter Wahlleben and UBC professor Suzanne Simard have provoked a broader discussion about the nature of forest communications that is both fascinating and controversial.
