One important point in the relationship between soils and vegetation in the tropical rain forest is that the roots of large tropical trees are near the surface so the nutrients gathered by the roots come directly from the upper levels of top soil. Thus the nutrients in the top soil sustain the trees. These relationship has produced buttresses and prop roots both of which add support for the shallowly-rooted trees and added nutrient gathering.
