Sorry, no etymologies found.
This is modified by the prevailing high humidity, giving peaty soils and a wide distribution of oceanic plants such as liverwort Frullania teneriffae, by the effect of salt spray even hundreds of meters inland, resulting in Plantago-dominated swards on cliff tops, and by the fertilizing effects of vast numbers of nesting seabirds which create a rich turf.
Pitcher-like structures have arisen in different ways in a number of genera, and are especially common in epiphytic forms (_Frullania_, _Lepidolaena_, _Pleurozia_).
