Contradictory evidence exists regarding the influence of bark peeling on the distribution of epiphytes among phorophyte species and vertical tree strata. However, there is little experimental evidence. The objectives of this study were to test whether bark-peeling rates differ between vertical strata and between phorophyte species, and whether the peeling rate correlates with epiphyte load among species of phorophytes
