G LICHEN, PARAMO VEGETATION, 11,OOO� ALT. COLOMBIA
At 12,000 feet in the humid mountains of Colombia�s Paramo, this lichen grows in profusion in boggy areas. Lichens are a symbiotic combination of fungus and algae enabling them to survive in the harsh climate. Here they are shaded from the intense sun by the world�s largest member of the aster family, Espeletia grandiflora. In the Paramo the Espeletia grow as trees to a height of 14 feet with bark on the trunk.
