Caption: Bromeliad. A flowering bromeliad (unidentified species; family Bromeliaceae) in cloud forest at Los Cedros Reserve on the western slopes of the Andes, Ecuador. The bromeliad family (or pineapple family) is almost completely confined to tropical America, where there are around 1400 species. Most are short-stemmed plants with rosettes of thick spiny leaves and bisexual flowers on a terminal inflorescence. In some species the leaf bases trap a pool of water, providing a home for lizards and frogs and a source of nutrients for the plant. This plant is covered by mosses (centre) and liverworts (on leaves). Los Cedros is part of the world's most biologically diverse forest.
