Thesis Title: Trunk-inhabiting Bryophyte diversity on two common native trees along an altitudinal gradient on Viti Levu, Fiji.
Principal Supervisor: Dr. Ralph Riley and Dr. Cara Miller
This project encompasses an ecological study of bryophytes on the lower trunks of two types of forest trees, in three different forest types. Bryophytes have been sampled from 0-2m along the trunks of tree ferns and Calophyllum trees in a lowland forest, an upland forest and a cloud forest.
