Natural hosts of Cuscuta reflexa.

Abstract

During a survey in Ranchi, Bihar, 15 plant species, including common fruit trees such as Syzygium cuminii, Ziziphus mauritiana, peach trees and Litchi chinensis and also hedges and ornamentals, were recorded as hosts to C. reflexa. Host-parasite interactions were investigated by sectioning through haustorial connections.
