Purpose

The pupose of the study for which these data were collected was to address the following questions for lichens and bryophytes in low-to mid-elevation forests of western Oregon: 1) Does traditional thinning-from-below alter epiphyte communities? 2) If so, does thinning increase or decrease old-growth-associated species? 3) Are the differences in epiphytes more strongly expressed on shrubs than on trees?
