The structure and diversity of the liana and hemiepiphyte community were examined in the lowland forest of the Estacion Biologica Paujil at the Parque Nacional Yanachaga-Chemillen and the Comunidad Nativa Yanesha Buenos Aires in the Oxapampa province of Pasco--Peru.
The epiphytes were classified according to the phorophyte, using the categories proposed by Benzing (1990): habitual holoepiphytes (mostly present in the epiphytic habitat), facultative (occurring in the epiphytic habitat as well as terrestrial plants), accidental (preferentially terrestrial) and secondary hemiepiphytes (germinates on/in soil but after contact with the phorophyte the basal part with radicular/ caulinar portions degenerates).

While hemiepiphytes and facultative epiphytes occupy lower strata, holoepiphytes prefer intermediate and upper strata.

The genus Vaccinium of the family Ericaceae includes about 450 species of trees, shrubs, subshrubs, and hemiepiphytes that are mainly distributed in the tropics of the Old World, Malaysia, and Southeast Asia (Luteyn 2002, Vander Kloet & Dickinson 2009, Vander Kloet & Avery, 2010).
It includes free-standing trees and shrubs, hemiepiphytes, epiphytes, and lianas.

The second and largest section examines canopy organisms from tropical arthropods to lizards, birds, mammals, epiphytes, and hemiepiphytes.
Lianas, like epiphytes and hemiepiphytes, are mechanical parasites, dependent upon trees to provide support as lianas grow from the forest floor to better lit areas in the forest canopy.
Additional details of this interaction, and implications of possible seed predation on hemiepiphytes by ants in the canopy are examined further in a separate paper (Laman, in press b).
