Definitions for "CLIMBERS"
Keywords:  lianes, lianas, felling, canopy, woody
Vines that either hang freely, are suspended from the forest canopy or adhere to the stems of trees by specialized roots. Free-hanging climbers with woody stems are often called big woody climbers or lianas (also spelled lianes). As they often bridge across several tree crowns, severe damage may result when one of the trees is felled. Climbers may represent important sources of food and habitat for animal species, however, and so should be cut only where necessary to reduce felling damage.
Climbers is a literary novel by the British author M.John Harrison.
Those gardeners who are willing to hike for distances to see an alpine specimen.
