From the Book: "Trees provide living space for the canopy's residents. In their fight for light, they battle for position, some growing head and shoulders above the rest and casting neighbors into the shade. Nearly all are decked with lianas, vine, and epiphytes - plants that sprout in the treetops. The canopy basks in light but faces the brunt of the weather, battered by rain one minute and parched by the sun the next."
