Parasitic Flowering Plants - Palomar College

The parasitic mode of existence can be found throughout the kingdoms of life, from bacteria and fungi to insects, arachnids and worms. Parasitism has also evolved in many families of flowering plants. Some heterotrophic flowering plants get their nutrition from mycorrhizal soil fungi that are in turn attached to the roots of forest trees.

Introduction SpringerLink

Parasitic weeds belong to a group of plants which have lost their autotrophic way of life during their developmental process (evolution). They are nutrition specialists to the disadvantage of their host plants. With special organs, the haustoria, they penetrate into the vessels of other plants in order to supply themselves with water and nutrients.
