The Forest Giant“This strangler fig stretched 100 meters up, and was likely hundreds of years old. Symbolic of the fast turnover of organic resources in rainforests, strangler figs start as saplings in the canopy, and slowly grows their roots around host trees, crushing and depriving them of light. The awe-inspiring power of these trees causes us to ponder our significance in the global biosphere.”—Perri Haser ’17, Biology FSP, Costa Rica, winter 2016,Stay connected to Dartmouth: Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Google+ | Instagram
