Figure S1. Frequency distribution of epiphytes in the dry forest of Chamela. Total individuals of the family Bromeliaceae found in 60 trees of three 10 x 10 m transects.
Figure S2. Differences in light environment at midday between typical compound and single-leafed canopies. Photograph of the overlapping canopies of Lysiloma latisiliquum (L.) Bent (compound leaves) and Brosimum allicastrum Sw. (single leaves) were taken by the author at midday at the Botanic Gardens of CICY (Merida, Mexico), which presents a similar species composition similar to that of Chamela.
Figure S3. Tillandsia pseudobaileyi (A) and T. eistetteri (B) leaf surfaces. Photographs of leaf imprints using an optical microscope amplified at x 10. Both higher trichome density and higher size of the trichome scale in T. pseudobaileyi contribute to double the trichome cover with respect to T. eistetteri.
