Pando may refer to:

Pando (application)

Pando was an application which was mainly aimed at sending (and receiving) files which would normally be too large to send via more "conventional" means. It used both peer-to-peer ( BitTorrent protocol) and client-server architectures and was released for Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

Pando shut down its servers and ceased business on August 31, 2013.

As of February 24, 2014 the Pando Media Booster has been hijacked and unsuspecting persons who install a prompted update have their internet browsers hijacked and a virus called the "Sweet Page" browser virus is installed on their machine.

Pando (tree)

Pando ( Latin for "I spread"), also known as the Trembling Giant, is a clonal colony of a single male quaking aspen ( Populus tremuloides) determined to be a single living organism by identical genetic markers and assumed to have one massive underground root system. The plant is estimated to weigh collectively 6,000,000 kg (6,600 short tons), making it the heaviest known organism. The root system of Pando, at an estimated 80,000 years old, is among the oldest known living organisms.

Pando is located 1 mile southwest of Fish Lake on Utah's Route 25, in the Fremont River Ranger District of the Fishlake National Forest, at the western edge of the Colorado Plateau in South-Central Utah.

Pando is currently thought to be dying. Though the exact reasons are not known, it is thought to be some combination of drought, insects and disease. The Western Aspen Alliance has been studying the tree in an effort to save it, and the U.S. Forest Service is currently experimenting with several five acre sections of it in an effort to find a means to save it.
