AbstractBased on morphological information from 619 pleurocarpous mosses occurring in 14 habitats, character states that potentially represent especially epiphytic adaptations are explored, by statistically evaluating differences in frequencies of states among species occurring in different habitats or habitat groups. Character states that are most frequent among epiphytes and could potentially have evolved as adaptations to epiphytism include: absence of a stem central strand, lack of… CONTINUE READING
