Subject: "accidental epiphyte"

I am finishing an invited paper for the journal BIOTROPICA on the
terminology of canopy biology. I am wondering whether there is such a
thing as a vine (or similarly a 2ndary hemiepiphyte) that can be an
"accidental epiphyte" by sprouting sometimes in the canopy say in the
soil of a branch crotch, rather than on the ground. In flooded or
innundated forests this might even be common, I should think.

I'm hopeful you can send this question out to the aroid community in
case anyone has seen examples.  This would be a new and interesting type
of behavior.

I'll send the same e-mail to Don Burns in case you are not around.
Would love any thoughts on this.
