1 .This is Scientific American 60-Second Science. I'm Steve Mirsky.

该句暂无译文!

2 .May 18th is the 37th anniversary of the massive explosion of Mount Saint Helens.

该句暂无译文!

3 .But within days of the volcano erupting, the local ecosystem started to bounce back.

该句暂无译文!

4 .Thanks to some unassuming little animals that spend lots of time underground.

该句暂无译文!

5 ."The pocket gophers were the ecological heroes of Mount Saint Helens."

该句暂无译文!

6 .Emory University paleontologist and geologist Anthony J.Martin.

该句暂无译文!

7 ."You normally don't hear those words put together, pocket gopher and hero.

该句暂无译文!

8 .But they were...these small burrowing mammals were able to survive this massive, devastating volcanic eruption."

该句暂无译文!

9 .Just as numerous animals that live underground have survived catastrophes and predators for hundreds of millions of years.

该句暂无译文!

10 .As Martin discusses in his new book The Evolution Underground: Burrows, Bunkers, and the Marvelous Subterranean World Beneath Our Feet.

该句暂无译文!

11 ."The reports I was reading about this, about how these researchers in helicopters are flying over the devastated landscape-just a few days later there were the burrow mounds.

该句暂无译文!

12 .Pop pop pop.

该句暂无译文!

13 .Thinking about these gophers that were below the ground.

该句暂无译文!

14 .And they survived that....

该句暂无译文!

15 ."So that to me was a golden opportunity to talk about that, as this incredible story of survival, but also renewal.

该句暂无译文!

16 .That these little burrowing mammals brought back that landscape.

该句暂无译文!

17 .Because their burrows served first of all as refuge for any other small animals that were there.

该句暂无译文!

18 .So other small mammals and other vertebrates, such as amphibians and reptiles that lived there, they were either in their own burrows or they were in pocket gopher burrows or other small mammal burrows in the area.

该句暂无译文!

19 ."The burrowing also brought up seeds.

该句暂无译文!

20 .The seeds are already buried, so that caused plants to start sprouting in the area, where it wasn't so much wind-blown seeds...

该句暂无译文!

21 .then of course once other animals started coming back into the area, like elk, and they started dropping seeds through their feces and otherwise affecting the surface ecology, that then worked together to bring those ecosystems back to life.

该句暂无译文!

22 .But the gophers were key in this.

该句暂无译文!

23 .They really were essential for these ecosystems to be able to bounce back."

该句暂无译文!

24 .You can hear an extended interview with Martin about his book in a Science Talk podcast posted on our website.

该句暂无译文!

25 .And there's a children's book just about the gophers and Mount Saint Helens called Gopher to the Rescue by Terry Jennings.

该句暂无译文!

26 .Finally, for general information about gophers and their effect on landscapes, check out the nature documentary Caddyshack.

该句暂无译文!

27 .For Scientific American 60-Second Science. I'm Steve Mirsky.
