Caption: Trumpet tree (Cecropia obtusifolia). This plant shares a symbiotic relationship with Azteca ants (Azteca andreae). The ants protect the plant from parasites and insects, while the plant provides the ants with food and shelter. The stems of the plant have small, naturally occurring orifices (known as domatia) for the ants to colonise.
