We studied the response of ground and epiphyte vegetation to the natural forest age dynamics of an old-growth spruce forest. The study was conducted at Mt. Brocken, Germany, in one of Central Europe few forests which is believed to have been largely untouched by forestry for many centuries. Epiphytes responded more sensitively to the forest dynamics than ground vegetation.
