Across one of innumerable small tributaries a tree has fallen. On it a bromeliad and other epiphytes have found a sunny haven. What for people is an inconvenience is a bridge for rainforest animals, enabling them to cross what may otherwise be an impassable barrier. This provides a connection between patches of rainforest, adding to habitat complexity and enhancing species diversity.
