The Science of Tree Communication

Starts Tuesday, May 10, 2022

6 p.m. EDT | Online

Trees may appear to be strong and silent, but they can “talk”—to one another, to other plants, and to animals and insects. Discover how trees communicate via chemical signals in the air (to warn each other of insect attacks), as well as through complex fungal networks underground to transfer nutrients and resources to one another (sometimes to assist sick trees).
