Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between various tree and epiphytic bryophyte species in two different terrestrial environments. The goal was to determine whether or not the present tree species in an area has a direct effect on the abundance and diversity of the epiphytic bryophyte species. This was completed by photo documenting, determining the frequency, and identification of tree and epiphytic bryophyte species in a selected area. These methods were used to accept or reject the following hypothesis: There will be no significant difference between the tree species diversity and epiphytic bryophyte species diversity in two different study sites.
