Epiphytic bromeliad communities in secondary and mature forest in a tropical premontane area
We analyzed the differences in species richness, community composition, population structure and within-tree location of epiphytic bromeliads in contiguous secondary and mature forests in a premontane area in Costa Rica. ...
Establishment of Epiphytic Bromeliads in Successional Tropical Premontane Forests in Costa Rica
Plant community composition is the combined result of species‐specific competitive abilities and the availability of propagules. For epiphytic plants, current hypotheses consider that dispersal‐related factors are most ...
Dispersal limitation in epiphytic bromeliad communities in a Costa Rican fragmented montane landscape
Transformation of tropical forests is likely to affect seed-dispersal patterns and influence the composition of epiphytic plant communities in human-altered habitats. We tested this hypothesis by carrying out a comparative ...
Reproductive Strategies and Colonizing Ability of Two Sympatric Epiphytic Bromeliads in a Tropical Premontane Area
Predispersal characteristics that affect the reproductive success in plants may influence their colonizing ability. We evaluated this hypothesis in two sympatric epiphytic bromeliads in Costa Rica, Guzmania monostachia and ...
Reproductive Biology of the Epiphytic Bromeliad Werauhia gladioliflora in a Premontane Tropical Forest
The floral phenology, fruit and seed production, and self-compatibility of Werauhia gladioliflora, an epiphytic bromeliad with a wide distribution, were studied in a premontane forest in the Monteverde area in Costa Rica. ...
