Plant ecology: Macroparasitism in plant communities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mistletoes, lianas, vines, and epiphytes fulfill many of the population dynamic criteria of animal macroparasites. A new study illustrates elegant ways to quantify cost to the host and how this impacts competition between mistletoe species. It opens the door to a much fuller consideration of plant parasites as macroparasites.
