About This Project

The tropical montane cloud forest provides important ecosystem services but is vulnerable to climate change. Within this ecosystem, epiphytes (non-parasitic plants that live on other plants) provide many resources but are vulnerable to drought. Changes in this community will likely affect the entire ecosystem. We will install cable-traverses & time-lapse videos to begin the first long-term monitoring program of this fascinating treetop community.
Blast off!
