Every tree is a complex ecosystem

From microbes to insects to birds, life in the treetops is diverse and fascinating. James B. Nardi is a research scientist in the School of Integrative Biology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the creatures that depend on trees that are also key to tree health. Plus, we’ll hear about the vital role trees play in the ecosystem beyond shade and shelter. His book is “The Hidden Company That Trees Keep: Life from Treetops to Root Tips.”
