STRUCTURE AND DIVERSITY OF THE LIANA AND HEMIEPIPHYTE COMMUNITY IN THE LOWLAND FOREST AT OXAPAMPA, PASCO--PERU
Two of the four species that preferred the 0-2 m stratum are facultative and another one is a primary hemiepiphyte closely related to soil.
Epiphytes, based on their observed relationship with their host plant, were characterized as obligatory holoepiphyte, preferential holoepiphytes, facultative holoepiphyte, accidental holoepiphyte, primary and secondary hemiepiphyte, based on Benzing (1990).
This species provides habitat to the establishment of epiphytes and hemiepiphytes (Becker et al., 2015; Negrao et al., 2017), moreover it also provides a great amount of organic matter to the soil (Fraga et al., 2008).
What drives the vital rates of secondary hemiepiphytes? A first assessment for three species of Heteropsis (Araceae) in the Colombian Amazon.
Spatial Distribution of Vascular Epiphytes (including Hemiepiphytes) in a Lowland Amazonian Rain Forest (Surumoni Crane Plot) of Southern Venezuela.
Hemiepiphytes' ("strangling" trees) proportion of total basal area was 0.1% at BMF, 1.7% at CMF, 0.2% at FLMF and 0% at the other altitudinal forest sections.
