On view are 40 photographs taken by ecologist Christian Ziegler at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute on Panama's Barro Colorado Island. These images reveal the tropical forest ecosystem as a complex "magic web" of interactions - mutualisms, predator-prey relationships, seasonal changes, and species' adaptations - that maintains the viability of the environment.
