The Forest is Connected

Like something straight out of Avatar, Dr. Suzanne Simard proceeds to blow our minds with science. Far beyond any hippie dippie theory, Dr. Simard introduces us to the concept of communication between trees. A diverse biosystem that is connected beyond the laws of natural selection. To me, this reveals a new level of order in forests that I could only have dreamed was real. I can't wait to go back in to the Cherokee National Forest soon with these insights. Makes me wonder again about the mysteriousPando, too.
