Butterfly and Trees, Madidi National Park, Bolivia

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature

The locals say palm trees here grow legs and walk to find more sunlight. Standing on stilts, Madidi’s “walking” trees, at right, appear to move as their shadyside roots wither. The palms may need strong root structures to quickly reach optimum height.

This photograph was taken on assignment for "Madidi: Will Bolivia Drown Its New National Park?" in the March 2000 National Geographic.

本月每日一图的主题是:自然

当地居民说,这里的棕榈树会长出腿行走以获取更多的阳光。Madidi的会走路的棕榈树拥有大量气生根,如图右,因为背阴处的根枯萎而显示出移动的迹象。棕榈树可能需要强壮的根系结构来快速达到适宜的高度。
