Episode 60

The second in a series of episodes in which I talk with Jim Penny of the Oxford University Botanic Gardens about extraordinary instances of symbiosis and inter-species mutualism in the natural world. This time, we discuss mycorrhizal networks (through which different species of plants and trees communicate and share nutrients). Jim also explains how not only are plants and animals colonies of cells, but cells can also be seen as colonies in some sense.
