About this book

Epiphytes, plants which grow on other plants for support, comprise more than one-third of the total vascular flora in some tropical forests. Growing within tropical forest canopies, their diverse adaptations make them a rich resource for studies of water balance, nutrition, reproduction and evolution. This book synthesizes the growing body of information from research on epiphytes and their relations with other tropical biota.

Re-issue, originally published in 1990.
