Epiphytes of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve
Entry ID: mcfp_epiphyte

Abstract: This is a list of all the species of vascular epiphytes known to occur
within the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve (MCFP) Triangle area
bounded by the Senderos R?o, Nuboso, and Pantanoso, and from a four
hectare area of lower montane wet forest set aside for research use
(southwest of Sendero Nuboso) (Map 1.4). The most typical growth
habit observed is included for all species. Degrees of abundance
given are based on general observations and are not derived
quantitatively. Abundant species (A) are the most common and the most
easily observed. Common species (C) are fairly easy to observe, but
less numerous than the most abundant class. Uncommon epiphyte species
(U) are seldom seen because they are few and widely dispersed.
