    Every once in a while, all the oaks or spruces or other plants in a region suddenly produce a tremendous bounty of seeds - up to 100 times more than usual. But why do they do it, and how do they all manage to sync up?
    ___________________________________________
    To learn more about mast seeding, start your googling with these keywords:
    Mast Year: A year in which all the plants of a particular species in a region ramp up their seed production.
    Predator Satiation Hypothesis: The hypothesis that mast seeding is a strategy plants use for controlling the population of squirrels and other seed-eating animals.

Thanks for the interesting video. I wondered if they reduced yield the 1-2 previous seasons. This would reduce the squirrel population while allowing the trees to save energy or allocating energy to roots and canopy to harvest energy better next year. Trees do track time, and synchronize flowering. Apple trees produce ever other year.

When you say they cannot talk, it's not to say that they don't communicate. They found large regions of trees in the northwest of United States communicating via a mycelium Network.

The first graph showed with squirrel icons probably should have looked more like a sigmoid (logistic) curve. To me, it seemed almost like the top section of a logarithmic function! When populations transition from one carrying capacity (or their lag phase) to another, it almost always resembles the same S-style curve.

It is possible they "talk" to each other. Symbiotic relationships between trees and fungi (fungi are the largest single living organisms on earth) could provide chemical queues to the whole forrest.

Read a book on trees, apparently they are able to communicate through intricate root systems and also send signals with underground fungi. Some times they produce lots of nuts because they are dying, spending the last energy to reproduce.
