    The adaptation of epiphyte plants to relatively xeric environments in forest canopies occurs in families that are extraordinarily rich in species (Orchidaceae, Araceae, Piperaceae and Bromeliacea). Epiphytic plants live in the trunks and branches of trees; in this way, they are in a favorable position to receive sunlight. Epiphytes have three different photosynthetic pathways, depending on the supply of light and water, a minority C4 and CAM, but most C3.

    Keyworks: tropical forest, adaptation of plants, ecophysiology of plants, Orchidaceae, Araceae, Bromeliaceae.
