Sizing up the ficus

One can only feel humbled when sizing up an impressive hundreds-year-old strangler fig (Ficus aurea) tree in the secluded Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Preserve in Costa Rica. At Around 5000' above sea level, the preserve is a stunning non-profit organization gathering critical information about the environment. Here, biodiversity reigns supreme, with thousands of different types of plants and insects, and hundreds of birds and smaller critters.
