Research has shown that beneath every forest and wood there is a complex underground web of roots, fungi and bacteria helping to connect trees and plants to one another.
This subterranean social network, nearly 500 million years old, has become known as the "wood wide web".

Should it surprise us that all life on this planet is interlinked, intertwined and interconnected?

Interdependent too.

It's been known for a while that plants can communicate with their neighbors via the Mycorrhizae network. Amazing how much stuff is happening down at the microscopic level. Like the fact that humans have way more bacterial cells than human cells, and we would be near death without them.

That's how termite fumigation works: The gas does not kill the termites. It kills all their gut bacteria, and they starve to death.
