Tiny Critters in Giant Trees: Dr. Rikke Reese Næsborg

Coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) supports rich communities of epiphytes growing high in their crowns, including a diversity of lichens, bryophytes, and vascular plants. Join lichenologist Dr. Rikke Reese Næsborg for an exploration of the results from two separate studies of epiphyte communities in the northern and southern part of the coast redwood range. We address questions such as, which factors drive community composition, and how do coast redwood epiphytes compare with those on other conifers?
