Quick, how many individuals in this stand of quaking aspen? That's right, just one. The entire grove is a single organism, each tree a genetic clone of the next. So next time you're on a quiz show and they ask you "What's the world's largest lifeform?", you'll be prepared. I want a cut of the winnings, though.
