 Suzanne Simard is a Canadian scientist who has been studying forests for the last few decades, with her work focusing on the underground networks that trees use to share resources with each other and other species such as fungi.

Her TED talk starts slowly (you can skip the first 5 minutes) but has a summary of her ideas.

This episode of the RadioLab podcast also covers the basic ideas (and visits the New York Botanical Garden).

That podcast includes Jennifer Frazer who writes The Artful Amoeba blog for Scientific American. Here is an article she wrote on Simard's work: "Dying Trees Can Send Food to Neighbors of Different Species"
