This video presents the studies about the complex and symbiotic networks of the forests by Suzanne Simard. Simard, a forest ecologist at the University of British Columbia, compares this phenomenon to the neural and social networks of human beings. She notes how those similarities can actually make a big difference in the future.
Simard focuses on deforestation as it produces greenhouse gas emissions than the combined emissions of automobiles, trains, and planes. She tries to find how we can resolve this problem to help save the environment. Her research led her to the discovery of an underground web of fungi connected to the fauna of an ecosystem. This was where she and her colleagues proved that plants communicate with each other. It is through this symbiosis that plants and trees share resources to help the entire ecosystem survive.
