What is epiphytology?
Epiphytology is the study of the character, ecology, and causes of plant diseases, as blight, which destroy a large number of susceptible plants in a large area simultaneously.
Epiphytes are plants that grow on plants, Plant pathology is the study of plant diseases I agree with Saramma Matthew! Bad answer list your sources

I would have liked more information on this word.

drjkmiller, I agree, and that was my first reaction to the question, epiphytes + logos. But when my answer was not to be found among the choices I remembered the Webster dictionary mentioned other meanings (Yes, I still read dictionaries)

Peter Korpics Jr., I agree that that would have been interesting. However, the author would have had to use more than one source. The current reference is a dictionary entry that has only the definition and several example sentences. Thank you, Christine, James's wife

drjkmiller, <<Thesill.com>> says that epiphytes are air plants that grow on other plants. <<Britannica.com>> explains that these plants are not parasitic, because they do not take nutrients from the other plant. I guessed parasitic plants, too. So, we learned today, and last year, that plant pathology is epiphytology. Have a great day! Christine, James's wife

The only picture that I can see on my tablet is of a question mark.

Irma Rivera, By the number of dislikes you've received, I'd say that several of us don't care. I for one, am tired of egotistical people bragging that they got the answer right. It adds nothing to the discussion.

At least it's informative. Better than a State Abbreviation.

Agreed- this is not correct drjkmiller,

you’re right. An epiphyte is a plant the grows on a plant- like orchids and mistletoe ,
