The Songs of the Trees- Seattle Town Hall

Location: Town Hall Seattle • 1119 Eighth Avenue • Seattle, WA • 98101

Of his writing, biology professor and writer David Haskell says, “I’ve turned my ear to trees, listening to their ‘songs.’ I’m writing about what tree acoustics can teach us, with a particular focus on biological networks.” His award-winning The Forest Unseen won praise for eloquent writing and deep engagement with the natural world. Now, Haskell brings his powers of observation to the biological networks that surround all species, including humans. Selecting a dozen trees around the world, he explores the their interactions with their surroundings, whether beneficial or destructive. Haskell will discuss the discoveries he made during this process and his belief that every living being is not only sustained by biological connections, but is made from these relationships. He reveals a networked view of life enriching our understanding of biology, human nature, and ethics.
