Abstract:

Forests are not just collections of growing trees. A forest is a complex environment, home to thousands of intricately interconnected living species. This program explores three aspects of the forest: the amazing process of photosynthesis, by which plants collect solar energy and convert it into essential compounds; the role of forests in global weather and in maintaining the balance of the biosphere; and the threats to our forests.
