Ecologist and Tsimshian native, Dr. Teresa Ryan shares from her training in Western scientific observation, insight into the relationships between tree roots and mycorrhizal fungi and marine-derived nitrogen that came from the bodies of spawned-out salmon that were defecated out by bears and eagles and otters, and even some people who eat that flesh of the fish in the forest, and fertilize the trees of the system to create and ingrain the webs of life below her deep green Pacific Northwest temperate rainforest. Introduction by Brock Dolman, Director of Occidental Arts & Ecology Center WATER Institute. This speech was given at the 2017 National Bioneers Conference. Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world’s most pressing environmental and social challenges.
