About this book

Vascular Epiphytes critically reviews advances in our understanding of the biology of vascular epiphytes since Andreas Schimper's 1888 seminal work. It addresses all aspects of their biology, from anatomy and physiology to ecology and evolution, in the context of general biological principles. By comparing epiphytes with non-epiphytes throughout, it offers a valuable resource for researchers who are not primarily interested in this plant group. A particular strength is the identification of research areas that have not received the attention they deserve, with conservation being a case in point. Scientists have tended to study pristine systems, but global developments call for information on epiphytes in human-disturbed systems and the response of epiphytes to global climate change.

Media reviews

"The book helpfully begins with a summary of the usage of taxonomic names and abbreviations. Further, appropriate photographs and pertinent information are presented in boxes, which breaks up the text and makes for easy reading. [...] This book can be used as a textbook for students or by researchers in the field of plant sciences."
The Journal of the Torrey Botanical Society, Vol. 145 (03), July, 2018

"Plants on Plants: The Biology of Vascular Epiphytes is a great book. It's informative, well written and clearly a labour of love from one of the true enthusiasts amongst the diehard modern-day band of epiphytologists. It's refreshing to see so much passion for one's subject. Lovely stuff!"
– Nigel Chaffey, Annals of Botany Blog, 2017
