Details About the talk

Wetenschappelijk schrijver Richard Preston praat over enkele van de grootste levende wezens op onze planeet, de reuzensequoia's of mammoetbomen van de Pacific Northwest in de Verenigde Staten. Ze groeien uit een piepklein zaadje maar ondersteunen enorme ecosystemen - en ze zijn nog altijd, grotendeels, een mysterie.
