chilensis showed a high degree of epiphytism
, principally detected through the abundant presence of brown filamentous algae.
They suggest that epiphytism
may have accelerated speciation by increasing the ability of bromeliads to colonize along the length of the Andes, allowing bromeliads to occupy a cloud-forest landscape punctuated frequently by drier valleys.
Our capture results suggest that this species inhabits the interior of small and mid-sized fragments of secondary forest that have a high degree of epiphytism
and great abundance of individuals of Arecaceae, Araceae and Piperaceae families.
Whereas the fossil record seemed to suggest that ferns experienced three distinct pulses of species diversification, the Duke team's analysis shows that there was a fourth, roughly corresponding with the development of epiphytism
Diversity, phenomenology and epidemiology of epiphytism
in farmed Gracilaria chilensis (Rhodophyta) in northern Chile.
Key Words: Codonanthe, epiphyts, ant gardens, parabiotic interactions, epiphytism
The disappearance of some of these horizons occurs very slowly and is the result of pressure from another species, which becomes dominant through epiphytism
In the marine environment, epiphytism
has not been widely studied, in contrast to the hundreds of papers on hard-surface fouling processes.
Temporal variation in Sargassum biomass, Hypnea epiphytism
and associated fauna.
Morphological and anatomical features associated with epiphytism
among the pleurocarpous mosses one basis for further research on adaptations and their evolution.
Hietz & Briones (1997) studied the adaptations to epiphytism
of Pleopeltis mexicana (Fee) Mickel & Beitel.
