In New York, parasitic plants are represented by 5 families, 21 genera and 40 species.  Although small in number, these plants show a range of morphologies and trophic modes including annuals and perennials, hemiparasites and holoparasites, and stem and root parasites.  This talk will provide an introduction to parasitic plants, highlighting their fascinating biology, while at the same demonstrating their beauty as natural components of New York plant communities.
