ATLANTIC EPIPHYTES: a data set of vascular and non‐vascular epiphyte plants and lichens from the Atlantic Forest

Abstract: Epiphytes are hyper‐diverse and one of the frequently undervalued life forms in plant surveys and biodiversity inventories. Epiphytes of the Atlantic Forest, one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world, have high endemism and radiated recently in the Pliocene. We aimed to (1) compile an extensive Atlantic Forest data set on vascular, non‐vascular plants (including hemiepiphytes), and lichen epiphyte species occurrence and abundance; (2) describe the epiphyte distribution in the Atlantic Forest, in order… Show more

“…The richest epiphytic families in Uruguay also match overall those found in epiphytic communities of humid subtropical areas in northeastern Argentina (Cabral & Salas 2008;Martín 2014), eastern Paraguay (Basualdo et al 2005) and southern Brazil (Gonçalves & Waechter 2003;Giongo & Waechter 2004;Buzatto et al 2008;Staudt et al 2012;Perleberg et al 2013;Matos et al 2017;Ramos et al 2019). However, in Uruguay Orchidaceae shows a lower contribution when compared with these studies, where it stands as the richest plant family.…”

“…Tillandsia stands out as the richest epiphytic genus in Uruguay, and furthermore represents an overwhelming amount of atmospheric against urn or tank bromeliads (in the rate 15:2). In moist tropical regions, this proportion is commonly inverse, i.e., there are more bromeliads with water-containing rosettes of the genera Aechmea or Vriesea (Fontoura et al 2012;Ramos et al 2019). The combination of a dense cover of water-absorbing trichomes, the waterretention in narrow and succulent leaves and the reflective surfaces of plants given by grayish tones, positions several Tillandsia-species among the most xerophytic epiphytes, allowing their occurrence in dry or enduring water-deficit environments (Benzing 1987;1990).…”

“…The past and present environmental dynamics have a role in biome diversification and current species distribution. Vriesea (Bromeliaceae) is one of the most representative genera of Atlantic Forest epiphytes (Ramos et al, 2019), where more than 90% of its 225 species occur (BFG, 2018). Vriesea (Bromeliaceae) is one of the most representative genera of Atlantic Forest epiphytes (Ramos et al, 2019), where more than 90% of its 225 species occur (BFG, 2018).…”

“…Both the Pliocene geological processes and subsequent Pleistocene climatic oscillations and the strong gradient across its latitudinal range may lead to genetic and morphological divergence not only within species, but also within complexes of closely related taxa (Alvares, Stape, Sentelhas, de Moraes, & Sparovek, 2013;Turchetto-Zolet, Pinheiro, Salgueiro, & Palma-Silva, 2013). Vriesea (Bromeliaceae) is one of the most representative genera of Atlantic Forest epiphytes (Ramos et al, 2019), where more than 90% of its 225 species occur (BFG, 2018). Recent diversification of the genus has caused low infrageneric resolution and unclear species boundaries (Costa, Gomesda-Silva, & Wanderley, 2014;Gomes-da-Silva & Souza-Chies, 2017).…”

“…Moreover, increasing the knowledge on how to estimate the colonization rate and dispersal range of the hyperdiverse, functionally important focal study group, epiphytes (e.g., Ramos et al. ), cannot be overestimated. Our Q2 distinguished recent colonizations from occurrences resulting from past colonization, but the lack of such knowledge could be compensated by jointly estimating the dispersal parameters and the force of colonization in Q3.…”
