Caption: Ferns on a buttress root. Buttress roots (background) are large, wall-like roots that help support large trees in tropical forests, where the soil is shallow. Here, ferns (feather-like leaf fronds) are growing along the root, using it for support. Photographed in the Amazon rainforest at the Tiputini Biodiversity Station, Ecuador.
