The world-leading scientist of plant communication and intelligence reveals how she discovered the secrets of the forest
Raised in the hardy forest communities of British Columbia, scientist Suzanne Simard overturned conventional beliefs in proving that trees and plants are connected underground by an immense web of fungal mycelia, at the centre of which lie the Mother Trees: the mysterious, powerful entities that sustain the forest.
Finding the Mother Tree is the story of a lifetime spent uncovering startling truths about trees: their perceptions, behaviours, healing capacities, language, memory and wisdom. Simard’s landmark work has been immensely influential, revealing the complex cycle of forest life – on which we rely for our existence – and offering profound lessons about resilience and kinship.
