Mediterranean forests have been fragmented intensively over time, thereby yielding small and isolated forest remnants. They host a rich variety of epiphytes, which may be affected by landscape structure. Previous studies have analyzed the influence of habitat quality on these epiphytic communities, but there is little knowledge of the effects of other fragment features. We evaluated the impacts of forest loss and fragmentation on epiphytic communities (lichens and bryophytes) at plot and… CONTINUE READING
