Intelligent Trees: everything that you've learned about trees

Eeverything that you've learned about trees

Peter Wohlleben, Forester, Minicipality of Hummel, Germany, Author of 'The Hidden Life of Trees': "Trees are very social beings. The parents, the "Mother Trees", are looking after their offspring."

Dr. Suzanne Simard, Professor of Forest Ecology The University of British Columbia: "I started looking at the root systems, and I found that the roots of these different species when they grow together, they all intertwined and interlinked together."

Peter Wohlleben: "What we call a tree is only what is visible above-ground. However, the major part of it's life takes place underground. One teaspoon of soil may contain several kilometers of string-like hyphae, that form the 'Internet of the Forest'".

Dr. Suzanne Simard: "The microwave network is just below the surface of the of the forest floors all of the trees were all linked together in a single massive network."

Peter Wohlleben: "Trees have feelings. They can feel pain, but can also have emotions, such as fear. There is in fact friendship among trees. They can form bonds like an old couple, where one looks after the other."

Peter Wohlleben: "Trees of one species are not competitors. On the contrary: They actually support each other."

Peter Wohlleben: "If a tree is attacked by insects, it warns all the others."

Dr. Suzanne Simard: "The root systems of trees and forest is the brains of the forest."

Peter Wohlleben: "Trees like to stand close together and cuddle. They love company and like to take things slow."

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
