The Ficus Religiosa is a species of large-bodied tree native to Central and South America, the southernmost continent in the world, and one of the only living relatives of the redwoods.
In many ways, they are an evolutionary outgrowth of the long-dead trees that inhabited the Americas.

They are native to Brazil and Paraguay, and are a member of a family called the Ficus genera.
They were first discovered by a botanist named José Cesar da Fonseca in the 1930s, and the first specimen was found in the 1940s.
Today, the genus can be found in over 300 countries, with around 30,000 specimens.
Today the fruit is considered a delicacy and prized in many cultures for its fragrant, citrus-like flavor and medicinal properties.
It is the only plant species known to produce a substance known as the musk that is used in traditional Chinese medicine.
The musk has been used for thousands of years in the Middle East, China, the Himalayas and Europe.
But despite its long-standing importance in the region, the fruit has also come under criticism.
A report by a Brazilian conservation group last year suggested that the fruit was being sold as a delicatessen fruit in some parts of Brazil, with the promise of a lucrative trade.
And in 2014, the United States banned the import of Ficus roots and seeds in the United Kingdom after it was found that the species was used in the cultivation of marijuana in the U.K.
According to the report, Ficus religiosum had been found to be a threat to biodiversity and ecosystems worldwide.
In Brazil, a study by a researcher at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro in 2009 found that in its native habitat, the species had been “decimating” the Brazilian redwood tree.
The species is also threatened by climate change, as they live in an area of high temperatures and low rainfall, and can survive on low oxygen levels, the report said.
“In some places the Ficaceae are already disappearing because of climate change and the effects of climate-driven habitat destruction,” the authors wrote.
“In addition, they have suffered severe impacts on their health and wellbeing, due to overuse, poor nutrition, and poor water quality.”
The researchers also found that Ficus trees can be susceptible to diseases and diseases from fungi and bacteria, as well as pests.
And yet, according to the World Wildlife Fund, the Ficoaceae have been listed as a species in “exceptional” status in the European Union.
This means that the plant can only be considered endangered or at risk of extinction in its range.
The researchers have also documented several species of fungi in the genus Ficus that have been found in parts of the tree’s habitat, suggesting that the fungi may have an impact on the tree itself.
But in their latest report, the researchers point out that there are other factors at play.
The researchers say that in a number of the species that are currently listed as endangered or threatened, the authors also identified a number that had not yet been previously described.
For example, F. reuteri was previously listed as “in danger” and F. pyrrhicotus was “very vulnerable.”
In some cases, they write, “species are listed as threatened in their ranges in order to attract more tourists,” but that can be problematic, because it can be difficult to know whether the species actually exist.
The report notes that “in the absence of data on the actual number of species in a region, we are unable to assess the extent of the problem.”
In a statement, WWF says that “the world is in danger of losing a valuable member of the global food chain, and it’s important that we find a solution that protects the Ficcos and our planet.”
In the meantime, the tree remains one of a handful of trees worldwide that can produce the fruit.
And according to WWF, the plant has a number more than 300 species that have yet to be identified.
