Summary Epiphytes need to balance the trade-off between long-term survival and colonizing new branches in their resource-limited and high-risk canopy habitats. We censused populations of five bromeliad species over two years and calculated matrix population models to determine the key factors influencing population growth rates. Additionally, logistic regression models were applied to study how demographic features change with microsite characteristics and disturbance. The bromeliads studied… CONTINUE READING
