The Queen of Trees - OFFICIAL

One of the most amazing stories in the natural world -- a tale of intrigue and drama, set against grand Africa and its wildlife.
The fig tree and fig wasp differ in size a billion times over, but neither could exist without the other. Their extraordinary relationship underpins a complex web of dependency that supports animals from ants to elephants. Each fig is a microcosm -- a stage set for birth, sex and death.
One of the most amazing stories in the natural world -- a tale of intrigue and drama, set against grand Africa and its wildlife.

  • This is a masterpiece, thank you so much for making this available. I was searching for a documentary after reading about the relationship between a fig tree and a fig wasp, the footage here made this amazing relationship come to live. I have learned so much about an important role a fig tree plays in an eco system despite its reputation as a killer species like strangler figs . It's a superb concept to use a fig tree to explain that all lifes are inter-connected, the system so complex, so beautiful but yet so fragile that we need to treat with up most respect. Thank again 😊🙏

  • Oh let me get this straight. A tree makes a home for a wasp and needs it to produce fruit. The tree can’t live without the wasp the wasp can’t live without the tree and this is said to be going on for millions of years? So what did the tree do before the wasp? What did the wasp do without the tree? Sounds like a perfect example of irreducible complexity to me. Funny sounds to me like design
