Lianas contribute substantially to the total species richness of tropical\r\nforests accounting for up to a quarter of the woody plant diversity. However liana diversity is intrinsically linked with forest condition and consequently is altered by human-induced forest modifi cations. Multiple environmental drivers including forest fragmentation logging and climate change are impacting tropical forests; the extent and intensity of their effects will likely defi ne future global liana diversity.
