Download E-books Vascular Plants as Epiphytes: Evolution and Ecophysiology PDF

By U. Lüttge (auth.), Prof. Dr. Ulrich Lüttge (eds.)

In his lectures my instructor Karl Mägdefrau used to claim that one in basic terms turns into a true plant scientist whilst one enters a tropical rainforest. For me this initiation happened in 1969 in northern Queensland, Australia, and used to be linked to the best pleasure. On one other point it bought affirmation whilst I set out in 1983 including a few associates and associates for the 1st precise ecophysiological reviews of epiphytes within the rainy tropics in situ within the island of Trinidad and later for comparable paintings in Venezuela. This then promoted the belief of organizing a different symposium on "The evolution and ecophysiology of vascular crops as epiphytes" throughout the XIV overseas Botanical Congress in luly 1987 in Berlin, and to invite many of the audio system to supply chapters for a small monograph at the attention-grabbing ecologically outlined crew of vegetation "epiphytes" as provided during this quantity of "Ecological Studies". the passion of the contributors of the symposium giving studies and including to the dialogue was once so much stimulating, and it seems that epiphytes could achieve richly deserved, wider attention sooner or later. The cooperation with the authors of this e-book was once very friendly and that i preferred the hot contacts verified with adepts of the "epiphyte community". The chapters have been prepared and organized masking first extra gen­ eral facets with surroundings the scene in bankruptcy 1, the evolution of epi­ phytism in bankruptcy 2 and the position of CO -concentrating mechanisms in 2 bankruptcy 3.
