Parasitic Angiosperms: How often and how many?

The paper published in Taxon this year (2020, 69 (1): 5-27) might be of interest to many of the IPPS members. This is the first comprehensive survey of all parasitic plants that reviews the number of times these organisms evolved and tabulates the number of genera and species. Hopefully it will prove useful to many who need this information for the Introductions to their papers! The pdf can be downloaded directly from the Wiley website for those who have subscriptions through their library, etc.: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/tax.12195
