Abstract Tillandsia capillaris Ruiz and Pav is an atmospheric epiphytic bromeliad able to grow attached to both trees and power lines in the arid–semiarid regions. We evaluated the influence of support type on nutrient sources of atmospheric bromeliads through of: a) quantity and chemical composition of material retained in the leaf surface (MRL) (dry weight, pH, nitrate, ammonium, phosphate and sulfate contents); b) chemical composition of plant tissues (nitrogen, phosphorous, carbon and… CONTINUE READING
