Abstract

Biomass was estimated in stands at about 600 m elevation. Epiphytes were divided into three categories: lichens with blue-green phycobionts, lichens with green phycobionts only, and bryophytes. Total biomass was 3500 kg ha-1: 1220 kg ha-1 for lichens with blue-green phycobionts, 5300 kg ha-1 for lichens with green phycobionts only, and 1770 kg ha-1 for bryophytes.
