It is the International Day of Forests. The theme this year is “Forests and Sustainable Cities”, so I’ve chosen a tree associated with urban landscapes (particularly in India!). Banyans, or banyan figs, can become so massive in both girth and canopy spread that they become destination sites for tourists.
Botany Photo of the Day: In science, beauty. In beauty, science. Daily.
