I'm sure most plants are sensitive to humidity.  Many plants close their
pores in response to water stress, which reduces the air flow and the
amount of photosynthesis they can do.  Many plants will keep on chugging
so long as the roots can provide enough water, but I wouldn't be
surprised if some plants from damp climes just aren't designed to pull
water up fast enough to keep the leaves from being water stressed in the
desert.

Also, if you are high, the plants are exposed to more ultraviolet
light.  Some plants like that, but others get "sunburned" and don't
thrive.
