      25–50%, and a lower montane cloud forest is observed. With further increases in elevation there is usually a very clear change from relatively tall (15–35 m) lower montane cloud forests to a distinctly shorter-statured (2–20 m) and much more mossy (70–80% bryophytic stem cover) upper montane cloud forest (Frahm and Gradstein, ). Few people would question the ecological and socioeconomic importance of tropical cloud forests, so it is a pleasure to discover a new book dedicated to their conservation and management. In fact, the cloud forest cause has been diligently promoted by a dedicated community of researchers and conservationists over the past couple of decades and Author: Adrian Newton.

      There are two major types of wet tropical forests: equatorial evergreen rainforests and moist forests, which includes monsoon forests and montane/cloud forests. Equatorial rainforests, often considered the "real rainforest," are characterized by more than 80 inches (2, mm) of rain annually spread evenly throughout the year. The book is composed largely of contributions to the Tropical cloud forest symposium/workshop, held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, from 31 May to 5 June An introduction and synthesis chapter is based on discussions in the workshop and material selected from the papers; a definition of tropical montane cloud forest is proposed and an annex lists known locations of .

New York: Springer-Verlag, © (OCoLC) Material Type: Internet resource: Document Type: Book, Internet Resource: All Authors / Contributors: Lawrence S Hamilton; James O Juvik; F N Scatena. The tropical cloud forests of the Andean region support some of the greatest plant and animal species diversity on Earth (Rahbek and Graves ; Barthlott et al., ; Brehm et al., ; Krömer et al., ), with a remarkable number of endemic and rare species (Duellman, ; Kessler, ; Kattan and Franco, ).

"In this paper, we will refer to tropical montane cloud forests (TMCF) in a topographic sense, as cloud forests lying on wetter mountainsides, ridges and saddles, whether in .A cloud forest, also called a water forest, primas forest, or tropical montane cloud forest (TMCF), is a generally tropical or subtropical, evergreen, montane, moist forest characterized by a persistent, frequent or seasonal low-level cloud cover, usually at the canopy level, formally described in the International Cloud Atlas () as silvagenitus.Cloud forests, for example, are often found in tropical or subtropical areas, where there is consistent low-level cloud cover that hangs in the sky at about the maximum height of the forest canopy.

These forests are characterized as having a significant amount of mossy vegetation, and many are located in Central and South America, Africa, and Asia.
