(1) A liana climbs its host tree, called a trellis, by laying down a network of tendrils, spikes, and hooks.(2) Underneath a big tree are various other plants, shrubs, liane , and so on, forming an interacting ecological structure.(3) Once exposed to full sunlight at the top of the canopy, lianas often flower and fruit prolifically.(4) Most representatives are lianas , while climbing shrubs and small trees can also be found.(5) Some of the leaves documented in this selection were from lianas grown in this way.(6) The window was blocked completely by a curtain of lianas , and Theo swore he could see a small monkey peering out at him.(7) Throughout the homeland of the Penan, sago and rattan, palms, lianas , and fruit trees lie crushed on the forest floor.(8) They are generally considered to be small, scrambling lianas or possibly shrubs.(9) Tropical forest foragers fashion their own nets from lianas , and make belt pouches, baskets, and mats from grasses.(10) When they reach the top of the canopy they often spread to other trees or wrap themselves around other lianas .(11) In reviewing the features of the leaves of the lianes it is seen that there are many characters common to them all.(12) Only 5% of the woods were identified as lianas , whereas 43% of the fruits and seeds have been.(13) Bunched optical fibers and acrylic light ducts draped like lianas from the ceiling, pulsing with digital information.(14) Finally, this work represents part of a long-term research effort in which mechanical architectures are being investigated in terms of the evolution of architectures of trees, shrubs, lianas and procumbent growth forms.(15) There they climb into a series of wooden constructions three metres high, made with tree trunks lashed together with lianas like tree houses perched above the flood.(16) These features, and very different life forms ranging from trees and lianas to annuals, occur within closely related groups.
