Forests work very hard and are of great benefit to all the species that live on Planet Earth. Terry will talk about what a forest is and how it functions.
How do mushrooms keep trees alive, how do they recycle them back in the ground again, how are the alders the first forest and when and how do they give way to the evergreens. What are the characteristics and uses for swamps and wetlands.
