Exploration: New Discoveries

Bruce Holst, co-editor of the Flora, on the summit of Aparamán-tepui with a specimen of the bamboo Myriocladus distantiflorus. All 13 species of Myriocladus occur exclusively on tepui summits. The high walls and dissected surfaces of tepuis are very difficult to explore and may require extensive, technical rock climbs. Aparamán-tepui, one of the last investigated by botanists, was first reached via helicopter in 1987.
