I want to do this in New Zealand...
- as far as I am aware, it has not yet been done here
- it would be a marvellous way to document the diversity and complexity of a tree habitat
- people would find it interesting and engaging
- it would be lots of fun!
So, if you're a photographer, tree climber, kind person willing to fund hairbrained ideas and/or keen epiphyter and you want in, let me know!
Finally, and on a slightly different topic, have a look at this beautiful blog by Dylan van Winkel that features epiphytic flora and fauna from Hauturu/Little Barrier Island.
