Caption: Stilt, or prop, roots of a palm tree, Iriartea sp., (also know as Pambil) in the rainforest near Nuevo Rocafuerte in Amazonian Ecuador. Roots serve two functions: to anchor the plant and to absorb water and minerals for growth. Prop roots, emerging from the main trunk or branches of the tree, usually serve to give added support to wide-spreading branches. In environments subject to flooding, they may also aerate the roots. A large number of tropical trees produce prop roots.
