Does anyone know of a complete listing of words ending in -phyte that
describe a group of plants with similar morphology, physiology, ecology,
etc. such as saprophyte, xerophyte, epiphyte, hemicryptophyte,
phreatophyte, oxylophyte, halophyte, and myrmecophyte? I'm not interested in 
taxonomic -phyte terms like bryophyte or coniferophyte.
