Using direct-aid climbing techniques for sampling trunks and branch systems, we found 74 species of lichens and 32 species of bryophytes growing as epiphytes in a 450-year-old Douglas-fir forest in western Oregon. This data is based on sampling designed to provide estimates of epiphyte biomass per hectare of forest to be used in ecosystem modeling.
