Population dynamics of epiphytic orchids in a metapopulation context

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Populations of many epiphytes show a patchy distribution where clusters of plants growing on individual trees are spatially separated and may thus function as metapopulations. Seed dispersal is necessary to (re)colonize unoccupied habitats, and to transfer seeds from high- to low-competition patches. Increasing dispersal distances… (More)
