HABITAT AND HOST PREFERENCES OF FICUS CRASSIUSCULA, A NEOTROPICAL STRANGLING FIG OF THE LOWER-MONTANE RAIN FOREST
TLDR
Ficus crassiuscula has evolved the strangling habit independently of the better-known strangling figs of the subgenus Urostigma, and the critical stage in determining the pattern of host preference seems to involve the morphological transition from viny sapling to juvenile with an erect stem.
