Abstract

Around 3000 species of plants are considered parasites because they obtain water, mineral nutrients, sugars, and sometimes other materials from another plant. Parasitism in plants has much in common with other plant life-history strategies, but it is distinguished by having a direct, physiological connection called a haustorium. Modern techniques for phylogenetic reconstruction have demonstrated that parasitism has originated a dozen times within the flowering plants, including mistletoes, dodders, and many agriculturally important species. The ecology of the parasitic plants and the interaction with the host are briefly described.
