Caption: Buttress roots and epiphytes on a tree. Buttress roots help support large trees in tropical forests, where the soil is shallow. Epiphytes (small green leaves on the root) are organisms that grow upon or attach to a living plant, usually for support. Photographed in the Amazon rainforest at the Tiputini Biodiversity Station, Ecuador.
