We are Pando: Rhizomatic Learning "... a rhizomatic learning community is a fluid collective where participants dwell in the middle of things and where learning emerges informed by a blend of explicit and tacit knowledge. In conceiving of rhizomatic learning, it helps to think of learners resembling a sea of "middles,” who are continuously formed and reformed based on alliances determined by needs, interests, directions, questions, redirections, assessments, and commitments."

Quaking Aspen - Populus tremuloides - order from Arbor Day Foundation

Pando is the clonal colony of a single male Quaking Aspen. It is located in Fishlake National Forest, Utah, United States is estimated to be 80,000 years old and covers around 107 acres of land and consists of 47,000 stems with an average age of 130 years each stem. The stems continually die and are renewed by its roots. It has a massive underground root system and with a weight of 6 million kilograms making it one of the heaviest and massive known living organism of the world.

Pando, a clonal colony of single male quaking aspen (the "trees" are actually stems of a massive single-organism root system) in the Fishlake National Forest in Utah. It's estimated to be at least years old.

Pando, ONE organism connecting thousands of stems (the trees are all part of one connected tree). Incredible. This is not a forest, but one living being.

The Pando aspen clone in Utah is thought to be years old. While Pando isn’t technically the oldest individual tree, this clonal colony of Quaking Aspen in Utah is truly ancient, and at tons, it is also the heaviest known living organism on earth.

This is Pando, but it isn’t a forest– it’s all one tree. Each trunk of the Quaking Aspen is genetically identical and connected by a single root system that’s at least 80,000 years old, which means it’s one of the biggest and oldest living things on...

Pando tree is a clonal colony (a bunch of trees with the same genes) connected by a massive root system, estimated to be 80,000 years old and is among the oldest oldest living organisms on our planet. Fascinating!

This is Pando, aka The Quaking Giant, the largest living organism and possibly the oldest too. Pando is a clonal-colony of around 47,000 genetically identical quaking aspen stems that covers 43 hectares (106 acres), weighs roughly 6,600 tons and is an estimated 80,000 years old!  To put this into context, when Pando’s seed first sprouted, modern humans had barely set foot out of Africa.

"Pando, also known as The Trembling Giant, is a clonal colony of a single male quaking aspen determined to be a single living organism by identical genetic markers and assumed to have one massive underground root system.

Пандо (дерево) — Википедия  Пандо (англ. Pando, англ. The Trembling Giant[1]) — клональная колония тополя осинообразного (лат. Populus tremuloides), расположенная в штате Юта, США.  Пандо считается единым живым организмом на основании идентичных генетических маркеров и общей корневой системы. Клональная колония охватывает площадь равную 43 гектарам, вес растения оценивается в 6000 тонн, что делает его самым тяжёлым известным организмом[2]. Возраст зарождения оценивается в 80 тысяч лет[3].

When the first shoots of the Trembling Giant first broke ground it Utah it was the Late Pleistocene. Will it survive the Anthropocene?
