        Root Systems of Trees at the Congaree Swamp

        In this video segment from NatureScene, learn about the structural adaptations of trees like the cypress and tupelo to the floodplain environment in the Congaree Swamp. These adaptations, such as modified roots, swollen bases, and shallow root systems, allow them to deal with lack of oxygen and flooding for prolonged periods.

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
