Forest, which 150 million years
• The forest, which 150 million years
Photo report from the Australian jungle.
Cape Tribulation (Cape of Disasters) - tropical forest in the northeast of Australia, which is considered the oldest on the planet. Plants live here at an average temperature of 27 and humidity.
Some ferns grow to the size of small trees.
And some, like many other native plants settle in the trees.
Suspended ferns in t. H. "Antler" (round) form a reservoir for collected deciduous tree leaves, which live and feed, decomposing them into the soil.
In large tree-kangaroos like to sleep, because by recycling leaves, ferns such produce heat.
Many plants are struggling to survive in the literal sense.
Lozova palm - aggressive plant. It is covered with thorns and arrows grows claws that cling to trees and bushes so that they raised it to the sun.
This plant is wound around the tree and also rises to the sun, where the top branch grows its trunk. When the tree-donor dies and rots, there is only patterned trunk parasite.
Mangroves - a small ecosystem within a large.
All mangroves acquire strong and fancy root system to stay on the silty soil during a hurricane.
I really like the fan palm. I consider them a symbol of prehistoric forests.
By the way, did you know that the taste of a ripe coconut just like the taste of European forest?
Australian tropics dazzling.
In a small area you can find a lot of species of plants.
