During the midst of this record-breaking winter, those concerned with bromeliad
conservation wondered if such extreme weather conditions could have an adverse effect on the Mexican bromeliad
weevil population, perhaps to the extent of diminishing the damage to the bromeliads
by the weevil.
Tillandsia turneri is the most abundant tank bromeliad
in this ecosystem (Isaza et al.

For each bromeliad
we recorded in situ its weight (Birtman, 12 kg scale), length of the longest leaf (leaf length), and total number of leaves.

One of the purposes of the BSI (that means you, the members--there is no one else involved) is to promote and maintain interest in the preservation of bromeliads
We studied anurans inhabiting the tank bromeliad
Most studies of arthropods living inside bromeliads
do not show specificity for particular bromeliad
species (Richardson 1999; Ospina-Bautista et al.
The ecosystem in which this bromeliad
is distributed, the Araucarian Mixed Forest, was severely devastated during the last century.
Every plant is a member of a family and a genus, and in this case, an air plant's genus is Tillandsia, which is part of the larger Bromeliad
