Caption: Giant groundsels (Senecio sp.) with tall trunks topped by a rosette of thick leaves. These leaves are arranged around a central bud and close up at night to survive the low temperatures in its mountain habitat. The plant is a giant, high altitude member of the Compositae family, which includes daisies. Photographed in the moorland zone above Horombo on Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, at an elevation of 3700 metres.
