"Sweeping across 107 acres of Utah’s Fishlake National Forest is one of
the world’s largest organisms: a forest of some 47,000 genetically
identical quaking aspen trees, which all stem from a single root system.
Pando, as the organism is known (its name is Latin for “I spread”), has
been growing for at least 80,000 years. But according to Yasmin Tayag of
Inverse, the grove’s health has declined dramatically over the past few
decades. Pando, a recent study has found, is dying."
