Suzanne Simard is a professor of forest ecology and teaches at the University of British Columbia. She has tested theories about how trees communicate with other trees and used radioactive carbon to measure the flow and sharing of carbon between individual trees and species.
Networks surround and sustain us, in nature, in our bodies, in relationships, in the digital world. This hour, TED speakers explore how we rely on networks and how we have the power to shape them. Guests include ecologist Suzanne Simard, UPS executive Wanis Kabbaj, computer scientist Avi Rubin and anthropologist Robin Dunbar. (Original broadcast date: January 13, 2017)
