Air Plants: Epiphytes and Aerial Gardens, David H. Benzing 2012.

In Air Plants, David H. Benzing takes a reader on a tour of the many taxonomic groups to which the epiphytes, including tillandsias, belong and explains in nontechnical language the anatomical and physiological adaptations that allow these plants to conserve water, thrive without the benefit of soil, and engage in unusual relationships with animals such as frogs and ants.

Benzing's comprehensive account covers topics including ecology, evolution, photosynthesis and water relations, mineral nutrition, reproduction, and the nature of the forest canopy as habitat for the free-living and parasitic epiphytes.
