Show Me Research Week will feature one of the world’s leading forest ecologists, Suzanne Simard, who will discuss her New York Times bestseller, “Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest.” Based on her years of research, Simard posits that trees are not simply the source of timber, but are a complex, interdependent circle of life. Trees are social, cooperative creatures connected through underground networks.

Immediately following the discussion, Simard will sign copies of her book outside Monsanto Auditorium. Yellow Dog Bookshop also will be on hand for book purchases. 

Simard is a professor of forest ecology at the University of British Columbia and has published more than 200 peer-reviewed articles. Her current research investigates how these complex relationships of trees contribute to forest resiliency, adaptability and recovery and has far-reaching implications for how to manage and heal forests from human impacts, including climate change.
