Caption: Clubmoss. Clubmosses (order Lycopodiales) are considered to be structurally similar to the earliest vascular plants, which evolved at the end of the Silurian period (445-418 million years ago). These clubmosses were photographed in the Ecuadorean paramo. The paramo is a distinct ecosystem that covers the upper parts of the northern Andes, encompassing parts of Venezuela, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Ecuador. The isolated and fragmented occurrence of the paramo promotes high speciation and an exceptionally high number of endemic plants.
