A preliminary taxonomic survey of host-range of Cassytha filiformis L in the lateritic District of Purulia, West Bengal,



A preliminary taxonomic survey of host-range of Cassytha filiformis L in the lateritic District of Purulia, West Bengal,



Journal of Economic and Taxonomic Botany 24(2): 467-473



The present paper deals with an account of host range of Cassytha filiformis L. of lateritic Purulia, West Bengal. The twiner parasite of Cassythaceae is so much infectious that as a bio-influencer it perfectly creeps down over the arches and on succulent stems of herbs of forests, crop fields, roadside species, garden species as well as of shrubs and trees. The extent of plant parasitism has been discovered spreading over 60 species of 54 genera under 36 families. Of thirty six families 7 families belong to Monocots.
