  • Title: What's New?
    Descriptive info: What's New on the Parasitic Plant Connection?.. To help visitors to this web site keep tabs on the ongoing changes, I've added this page which will give a "running tab" of the significant updates.. February, 2010.. It has been some time since I tabulated the list of contributors to the PPC! As you can see from the list below, 36 people have contributed over 80 photos to this web site.. Please forgive me if I have overlooked you for this list (let me know).. In addition, I have continued to link to photos present on other web sites.. Two sites in particular have recently come on line that feature large numbers of high-quality digital photos of plants, including parasitic plants.. These are.. FloraoftheWorld.. org.. and.. PlantPhotoBank.. cn.. Although the latter is in Chinese (which may inhibit some of you), the second tab at the top provides a list of families in English.. You can get a rough translation of the index page using Google.. here.. I want to particularly acknowledge the following who provided photos of genera previously not represented on this site: Alexander Georgiev (.. Chlamydophytum.. ), Sachin Punekar (.. Helicanthes.. ), Peter Phillipson (.. Leucosalpa.. ), D.. C.. H.. Plowes (.. Vanwykia.. ), Shengxiang Yu (.. Brandesia.. ), John Dransfield (.. Lampas.. ), and Phan Ke Loc (.. Harmandia.. As shown on.. this page.. , there are now only 34 (of the 270) genera of parasitic flowering plants not featured on PPC.. Of course, photographs are not the only thing offered on the PPC.. Although I have not always kept up by adding the recent literature to the list at the end of each family page, for some groups I have included citations to recent phylogenetic studies.. This is especially true for the groups that I work on, such as Santalales.. Two para- or polyphyletic families in this order,.. have now been reclassified (Nickrent et al.. 2010 in press), these "families" split into monophyletic groups and named as families.. For now, the genera are left in their old "sensu lato" families, but after the Taxon paper is published, I intend to provide new, separate pages for each family.. Stay tuned!.. Amico, Guillermo:..

Korthalsella opuntia.. Vidal-Russell, Romina:.. Myoschilos oblongata.. Yu, Shengxiang:.. Brandesia hancei.. December, 2008.. The widespread use of digital cameras has resulted in a virtual explosion of photographs on the internet! Moreover, these armies of professional and amateur photographers are sharing their photos with the world by posting on web sites such as Flickr and Picasa web.. I have recently conducted a series of searches, mainly on the Flickr web site, for photographs of parasitic plants.. This resulted in literally thousands of hits, many of which are of species not previously shown on the Parasitic Plant Connection.. Several hundred links to individual photos or photo sets were then added.. This method of sharing photos has the benefit of not requiring separate server space for image storage but has a possible down side if these links are not stable over time.. Enjoy the richness and diversity that adding these links provides!.. September, 2008.. It may seem from the long period of time between this and the last report that nothing was being done to the Parasitic Plant Connection.. Such is not the case! There have been a number of updates and, as you would expect, additions of numerous photographs.. A number of family alliances have changed owing to information obtained from molecular data.. This is especially true for members of Santalales.. Within this order, two new genera have been named (.. Staufferia.. Pilgerina.. , both in "Santalaceae" from Madagascar) and among holoparasitic Orobanchaceae, the genus.. Eremitilla.. was named and described.. Previous molecular work placed Rafflesiaceae s.. str.. in Malphighiales, but additional work showed it is related to Euphorbiaceae.. The original study that separated Cynomoriaceae from Balanophoraceae also showed the latter to be affiliated with Santalales.. This result has been confirmed by two additional and independent studies.. From these, it should be apparent that there is much work taking place with parasitic plants and that interest in them is increasing.. I want to warmly thank all the people who contributed photographs to this web site.. Without these, the site would not be as comprehensive and useful to those who use it.. Barcelona, J..

Has it really been over one year since I last updated this page! The PPC has continued to grow, mainly owing to the addition of photographs from numerous contributors (see below).. I especially want to acknowledge Robin Foster (.. Neotropical Live Plant Photos.. ), Rusty Russell (.. Plant Image Collection.. , Smithsonian) who made available photos of parasitic plants from R.. Howard and G.. Cooper, as well as Jeffry Morowetz who contributed a number of photos of Orobanchaceae.. The ".. Praising Flowers.. " website in Japan as well as the ".. Wildflower Romantic.. " website in China were excellent sources of Asian parasitic plant photos.. My apologies for not being able to acknowledge the actual photographers from these sites (either they were not given or I was not able to find and translate the information)..

Cecarria obtusifolia.. , Loranthaceae).. Dave Albrecht.. , Santalaceae).. Several photographs I took while in Queensland Australia (June) and while doing research with the Forest Research Institute in Papua New Guinea (July) have now been posted.. Most of these are of Loranthaceae in the genera.. Amylotheca, Decaisnina, Diplatia, Distrianthes.. (herbarium sample),.. Lysiana, Macrosolen, Papuanthes.. (herbarium specimen), and.. Sogerianthe.. I also photographed.. (Balanophoraceae, Queensland) and.. Dendromyza.. (Santalaceae, PNG).. June, 2002.. NEW SPECIES OF RAFFLESIA!.. No, this is not a practical joke, it's true.. A new species of the "Queen of the Parasites" has been discovered in the Philippines.. The event has already attracted scores of tourists and has been covered by newspapers and television.. This just goes to show how poorly known and how valuable tropical rainforest habitats are.. Check out the photographs.. I have posted a number of new links to photographs and line drawings of hemiparasitic and holoparasitic Orobanchaceae.. Many of these are links to the TROPICOS image library at Missouri Botanical Garden.. Others were discovered by searching the web.. There's still ca.. 30 genera of hemiparasites with no photographs.. Let me know if you can "fill in a gap"!.. May, 2002.. Paul Hiepko (.. Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum, Berlin-Dahlem) shared some of his excellent photographs of Opiliaceae, thereby more than tripling the number posted for this family! Thanks so much for your generosity Paul.. Gerald Schneeweisse (Dept.. of Systematics and Evolution of Higher Plants, Inst.. of Botany and Botanical Garden of the University of Vienna) donated pictures of two species of.. from Greece.. February, 2002.. Michael Hopkins kindly provided digital images of parasitic plants (e.. g.. Loranthaceae) found in the Reserva Forestal Aldolfo Ducke which is near the city of Manaus, Brazil.. Some of these photos were published in the book "Flora da Reserva Ducke" by Ribeiro, Hopkins, Vicentini et al.. (1999, INPA-DFID).. In case you haven't seen it, this is one of the most incredible documentations of a tropical flora that has ever been done.. The book contains literally thousands of high-quality color images of neotropical plants.. You can learn more about the Ducke Reserve by visiting the following website:.. http://curupira.. inpa.. gov.. br/projetos/ducke.. [note the name.. Curupira.. is a rare genus in Olacaceae!].. December, 2001.. Several people have contributed marvelous photographs! These include:.. Wm.. Vance Baird.. Phoradendron, Pholisma, Schoepfia, Agalinis, Conopholis, Epifagus.. Pedicularis.. A special thanks to Vance who kindly gave me his entire collection of parasitic plant color slides as well as several boxes of reprints!.. Alison Colwell.. George Yatskievych.. Pholisma.. Gerhard Glatzel.. (Loranthaceae and Viscaceae).. Gerhard sent an entire CD full of beautiful photographs.. Unfortunately I cannot post all of them but hopefully have picked some appropriate representatives.. Valéry Malécot.. Douradoa, Malania.. Mistletoe Symposium.. An announcement is now posted for the upcoming symposium on mistletoes (part of the International Canopy Conference) to be held in Cairns, Australia, June 23-28, 2002.. for info.. July, 2001.. Albert Blarer (University of Zürich) visited Zimbabwe and was able to photograph and collect.. Berlinianche aethiopica.. (Apodanthaceae or Rafflesiaceae s.. lat).. He has kindly allowed some of these photographs to be posted on the PPC.. Visit his site.. to see more.. September, 2000.. John Reynolds (Portland Oregon) kindly donated several excellent images of..

DWARF MISTLETOES: BIOLOGY, PATHOLOGY, AND SYSTEMATICS is now available in its entirety on the web! Thanks to Dan Huebner and Brian Geils.. to go there.. July, 2000.. Parasitic Plants as Food.. Indeed, humans have "turned the tables" on some parasitic plants by using them as food items.. This.. page.. lists (in table format) some examples.. June, 2000.. Several new photographs have been added to the PPC:.. Photographs of herbarium specimens of.. taken by DLN when visiting the Missouri Botanical Garden herbarium (MO) during the fall of 1999.. These are of genera for which I do not have an actual color slide of the living plant.. If you have access to a slide that would replace the herbarium specimen, please contact me (D.. Nickrent).. I also made links to several parasite pictures present in the Tropicos database from MO such as.. Gaiadendron.. Bdallophyton.. (Rafflesiaceae), etc.. Lytton Musselman kindly donated many slides, some of which have been scanned and posted (e.. , Santalaceae, from South America).. George Williams volunteered photographs of.. Hydnora esculenta.. from his recent trip to Madagascar.. Visit his.. web page.. to see photographs of lemurs eating the fruits!.. Updates to Address List.. Several new people have been listed on the ".. Names and Addresses of Parasitic Plant Specialists.. " page.. Please inform me if your address/email has changed and I will update the listing.. Controlling Mistletoe.. I get a fair number of inquiries (via email) about how to control mistletoe.. To save myself replying to every separate one, I have posted a new page called ".. Controlling Mistletoe (.. Phoradendron.. )".. August September, 1999.. A number of new parasitic plant photographs have been added (or links made) to the listing of genera on each family index page.. These came mainly from:.. The University of Hawaii Vascular Plant Families.. (by Gerald Carr).. Australian National Botanic Garden.. Photo Collection.. Scanned images from the Kew Herbarium archives.. Family Index Page Appearance.. The listings of genera that appear on each family index page now have each genus set out to the left in a bold, red heading to help with organization and navigation.. Abstracts from the IBC.. All the abstracts from the two parasitic plant symposia at the recent IBC are included as well as any other papers or posters that dealt with parasitic plants.. 7th.. International Parasitic Weed Symposium.. announcement.. for this symposium was added to the main index page.. New Names.. A number of new names have been added to the.. Parasitic Plant Specialist..

  • Title: Photographs Needed!
    Descriptive info: Images on the.. web site generally fall into one of four categories:.. 1.. Color photographs of living plants.. These are the most desirable because a good photograph is "worth a thousand words.. ".. 2.. Color photographs of herbarium specimens.. These can show a number of diagnostic taxonomic features and are thus "second best" to a photo of the living plant itself.. Lost are flower color, aspect of the leaves, etc.. 3.. Color paintings.. In some cases (e.. the extinct mistletoe.. Trilepidea.. , Loranthaceae), all that exists for this taxon is a painting, hence it is used.. Line art (black and white).. I have generally used line art of a taxon only if 1-3 above are not available.. In terms of taxonomic value, they can be extremely useful because diagnostic taxonomic features can be clearly shown.. See for example Opiliaceae.. Given the above, the.. needs your help.. For the parasitic plant genera listed below, there are currently no color photographs of living plants available through this web site.. In some cases, a photograph of an herbarium specimen is available and is so indicated.. I routinely conduct Google image searches and usually obtain no "hits" when the generic name is entered.. In some cases, this is because the plant is extremely rare (and possibly extinct) and may never have been photographed (e.. Thaumasianthes.. , Loranthaceae).. In other cases, photographs may exist but are housed in private collections that  ...   that you are willing to share, or know of someone to contact to obtain such a photo, please let me know (..

  • Title: PPC.navigation.diagram
    Descriptive info: Navigating The Parasitic Plant Connection.. When you first visit a web site, it is often frustrating and time-consuming to learn enough about the organization of the pages to find the information you need.. I have made every attempt to keep the format of the PPC as intuitive as possible, but a little extra help is always welcome! The diagram below shows the basic organization of the PPC web site.. The yellow bubbles represent pages  ...   The blue bubbles are pages that are accessible only by visiting the family-specific pages (see.. on main index page).. As of November 2010, The Parasitic Plant Connection contains over 4000 files, 3564 of these image files of parasitic and mycoheterotrophic plants.. And of course, the family pages link to many photographs being maintained on other servers.. At present there are over 760 links to at least one remote image.. edu/navigate..

  • Title: The Parasitic Plant Connection - Justification for PPC
    Descriptive info: Why The Parasitic Plant Connection?.. The motivation to assemble this series of pages is both self-serving and altruistic.. For myself, I would like to use these pages as a repository of information on parasitic plants as an aid to my research program.. There are over 4300 species of parasitic plants, thus a real effort is required to keep the information organized (something systematists are compelled to do!).. I began organizing information about parasitic plants many years ago using a Macintosh program called HyperCard.. From this came a series of "stacks" (files) containing B W graphical images, species lists, distribution maps, etc.. for a selected group of parasitic plants.. This series of  ...   first version of The Parasitic Plant Connection web site.. During the course of traveling to the far corners of the earth to collect parasitic plants, I have assembled a rather sizable collection of photographs of these unusual plants.. The ability to post on the WWW color photographs of spectacular plants such as.. made this site both aesthetically appealing as well as scientifically useful.. With such images, and with those kindly made available by colleagues, I hope to share with others the joy of studying these fantastic plants..

  • Title: Parasitic Plant Connection - Links to other sites
    Descriptive info: Links to Other Sites about Parasitic Plants.. Parasitic Plants in General.. International Parasitic Plant Society.. The IPPS is dedicated to advancing scientific research on parasitic plants.. This includes increasing our understanding of these amazing plants as well as helping to decrease the crop damage inflicted by weedy parasitic plants.. This web site was designed and is maintained by James Westwood.. Plant Site from Old Dominion University.. Lytton Musselman.. has made available thousands of photographs that he has assembled during a lifetime of travel and photography.. There are many categories to choose from, including.. Bible Plants..

Past issues of this newsletter are available at this web site.. The website maintained by Old Dominion University.. The Plant Pathology Internet Guide Book.. Created by Thorsten Kraska, this site is a subject-oriented internet resource guide for Phytopathology, Applied Entomology, and all related fields.. It is divided into various thematic section such as Mycology, Biological Control, and Weeds Parasitic Plants.. This site is a must for all plant pathologists.. Introduction to parasitic flowering plants.. by Dan Nickrent amd Lytton Musselman (2004, updated 2011.. APS Education Center Introductory Topics: Introductions to the Major Pathogen Groups).. Parasitic Plant Database.. This database was established by Jan Schlauer and Willem Meijer with help from Rick Walker.. It is a nomenclatural synopsis of selected parasitic plants, specifically the holoparasitic groups: Rafflesiaceae, Balanophoraceae, Hydnoraceae, Orobanchaceae, Cuscutaceae.. It contains over 4000 entries and has search capabilities.. Parasite of the Day..

Yoga of The Star (Malaysia).. Rediscovery Rafflesia Spp.. (not clear what this name means!) This blog seems like a compilation of everything that the author (Tun Jang) could glean from the internet, including whole pages (with photos and text) from other web sites, including the Parasitic Plant Connection! As such, this blog ends up being a bizarre collection of material.. It seems the blog stopped in 2008, so some of the material is out of date.. For example,.. banahawensis.. is listed as a species, but nowhere is told that this name is now a synonym of.. philippensis.. The section on Ecology "borrowed" pages from Parasitic Plant Connection, including a distribution map that is years old - back when we still considered.. related to.. (now Cytinaceae).. Maybe this is understood by those who view blogs - that old as well as new material is preserved.. But to the unaware, how will they distinguish between correct and incorrect information? Some of the text describing certain species (e.. rouchussenii.. hasseltii.. patma.. ) is in Indonesian.. If you don't read this language, you can use Google language tools to get a rough translation of these to English..

  • Title: Terms List
    Descriptive info: Terms Associated with Parasitic Plants.. This list does not include general morphological, anatomical, taxonomic, genetic, and ecological terms commonly applied to all angiosperms but focuses upon those terms specific to parasitic plants.. Also included are some terms that are often erroneously associated with parasitic plants.. Example photographs illustrating the terms are provided.. Autoparasite.. A parasitic plant that attaches by means of haustoria to its own tissues.. Commonly seen in.. , and seedlings of Loranthaceae (.. Autotrophic.. Capable of feeding oneself, i.. photosynthetic plants.. Calyculus.. A reduced calyx in various Santalales (e.. Schoepfiaceae, Loranthaceae).. Usually present as a toothed, shortly lobed or entire rim around the summit of the ovary.. See.. that shows a calyculus as a lobed sheath crowing the the inferior ovary.. Cataphyll.. The first-formed, foliar organs (leaves) of the hypocotyl or branch meristems in some members of Santalales (e.. Olacaceae, Loranthaceae, Viscaceae).. This example of cataphylls in.. reichenbachianum.. ?) has basal cataphylls on the lateral branches as well as pairs of intercallary cataphylls located more distally on those branches.. Cortical Strand.. See endophyte.. Diaphragm.. The centrally located aperture that occurs at the apex of the perigone tube in.. (but not.. Rhizanthes.. Ectophyte.. The aerial parts of a parasitic plant (e.. stem, leaves, flowers) that occur outside the host plant; cf.. the internal endophyte.. Endophyte.. The portion of the haustorium that occurs inside the host tissue.. For viscaceous mistletoes, it may be composed of cortical strands that occur within the inner bark and sinkers that are oriented radially and traverse the xylem.. diagram.. of broom types in.. and anatomical section showing sinkers in.. Arceuthobium pusillum.. Epicortical Root.. In mistletoes, adventitious roots (arising from the parasite stem) that traverse the host bark, eventually establishing secondary haustorial connections.. Examples:.. Dendropemon.. Bakerella.. Notanthera.. Plicosepalus.. Epiparasite.. One parasitic plant that forms an obligate haustorial attachment to another parasitic plant.. Example:.. Phoradendron scabberimum.. on.. longifolium.. See also hyperparasite.. Epiphytism.. One plant (the "host") used for physical support by another plant.. Aerial parasites such as mistletoes can also be considered epiphytes.. But, not all epipytes are parasites! For example, this.. slide.. shows both orchid (.. Oncidium.. ) and bromeliad (.. Tillandsia.. ) epiphytes from Andros Island, Bahamas, neither of which draw nutrients directly from their hosts (they lack haustorial connections).. Facultative Parasite.. A hemiparasitic plant that does not require a host to complete its life cycle.. Note, however, that in nature, parasitism is nearly always observed.. Many members of Orobanchaceae are facultative hemiparasites such as.. Agalinis.. Aureolaria.. Seymeria.. The morphologically modified root which physically connects the parasite to the host.. May be a primary haustorium if the radicle apex is directly transformed into a haustorium (e.. ) or a secondary haustorium formed from tissues other than the radicle apex such as secondary root apices or from lateral positions on the root (e.. Ximenia.. Dasistoma.. The haustoria of holoparasites are more complex (see.. Conopholis.. Balanophora.. , ).. image.. showing many types of haustoria.. Hemiparasite.. A parasite that is photosynthetic (during at least one stage of its life cycle).. It obtains water and nutrients from the host xylem.. Some advanced hemiparasites (e.. dwarf mistletoes) also obtain photosynthates from the host phloem.. Hemiparasites can be either facultative (e.. many Orobanchaceae) or obligate (e.. mistletoes).. Figure of Holo- and Hemiparasites.. Heterotrophic.. Referring to organisms that do not produce their own food (thus are nonphotosynthetic).. Such organisms must then obtain organic compounds from exogenous sources.. In the case of parasitic plants, this is another plant.. Contrast with autotrophic.. Many forms of heterotrophism exist such as saprophytism,.. mycoheterotropism.. , and parasitism.. Holdfast.. In some mistletoes, a disc-like swelling at the end of the radicle that forms the first attachment to the host.. In this example of an autoparasitic.. seedling, the holdfast is present and a young epicortical root is emerging from it.. Holoparasite.. A nonphotosynthetic parasite that obtains water and nutrients from the host xylem and photosynthates from the host phloem.. Holoparasitism has evolved ten times in  ...   may also see these plants.. called myco-heterotrophic epiparasites.. or.. ectomycorrhizal epiparasites.. For more on these plants frequently mistaken as haustorial parasites, see the ".. Strange and Wonderful Mycoheterotrophs.. Nodules.. Many angiosperms, especially legumes, are able to fix atmospheric nitrogen by enlisting the help of a symbiotic bacterium.. These bacteria live in special bumps on the plant roots which are called.. nodules.. The most common type of bacterium to form nodules is the genus.. Rhizobium.. Root nodules are sometimes confused with parasitic plant haustoria.. Obligate Parasite.. A plant that must attach to a host to complete its life cycle.. All holoparasites are obligate whereas only some hemiparasites are obligate such as mistletoes and.. Parasite.. A symbiotic association whereby an organism obtains at least some of its nutrition directly from another organism.. In plants, a restrictive definition includes only parasites with haustorial connections to other plants, not myco-heterotrophs.. See also hemiparasite, holoparasite, facultative parasite and obligate parasite.. Pathogen.. A parasite that has clear detrimental effects on the host plant.. Examples of plant pathogens include.. In contrast, many haustorial parasites result in such small negative effects as to approach a commensalistic relationship.. For example, beechdrops (.. ) is a parasite on beech trees but cannot really be called a pathogen.. Perigone.. In some members of Rafflesiaceae (.. , Sapria.. ), the perianth is referred to as the perigone.. It is composed of a perigone tube and perigone lobes.. Resistance.. A feature or features of a plant that prevent it from serving as a host to a parasitic plant.. This resistance may be manifested prior to or after initial haustorial attachment.. Root Grafting.. Adjacent roots of the same or different woody plants can become attached by means of cambial growth.. Saprophytism.. An organism that obtains its food from decaying organic matter.. Technically, no flowering plants are saprophytes, only fungi.. See myco-heterotrophism.. Sinker.. Susceptible.. A feature or features of a plant that allow it to serve as a host to a parasitic plant.. Symbiosis.. A general biological term referring to at least two organisms living together.. The participants are called symbionts.. Includes more specific associations such as parasitism, mutualism, neutralism (parasymbiosis), commensalism, etc.. Systemic infection.. An infection of a host by a parasitic plant whereby the growth of the endophyte keeps pace with the growth of the host meristem.. Also called isophasic growth.. Can be seen in some dwarf mistletoes (.. douglasii.. ) and.. Viscin.. A complex material covering the seeds of most mistletoes.. Composed of two parts: 1) a mucilaginous pectic material that accounts for the stickiness and water-holding capacity of the viscin (oligo-D-galacturonic acid and 2) helical strands composed of cellulose.. See Paquet et al.. (1986, Bot.. Gaz.. 147:156-158).. Phoradendron serotinum.. Witches' broom.. An dense aggregation of host branches that is hormonally induced by the presence of fungal or mistletoes such as.. Sometimes simply called a "broom.. " In Arceuthobium, two basic types occur: nonsystemic brooms, such as in.. campylopodum.. (=.. A tsugense.. where the parasite endophyte does not ramify within the host tissue and systemic brooms, as in.. pusillum.. where the endophyte meristem occurs near and divides in synchrony with the host meristem.. Woodrose.. A distortion of the host secondary xylem (wood) induced by a parasitic plant haustorium.. The haustorium causes the host cambium to increase the amount of wood deposited resulting in a placenta-like structure.. The shape of the woodrose will vary depending upon the parasite/host combination and may assume a columnar, conical or saddle shape.. When the parasite tissue dies away, all that is left is the host xylem, hence woodroses are made up entirely of host tissue.. In the Old and New World tropics, mistletoe woodroses are sold as curiosities and are often carved into ornate works of art.. This photo.. shows a woodrose formed by an unidentified member of Loranthaceae and a carving of a lizard made from a similar one.. Woodroses are even formed by the balanophoraceous holoparasite.. edu/terms.. Last updated: 27-Sep-11 / dln..
