New book: “Parasitic Plants in African Agriculture” (CABI) – by L.J. Musselman & J. Rodenburg

This book brings together for the first time in a single volume, the ecology, biology, damage, and control of all groups of African parasitic plants including both the relatively few parasites introduced to the continent as well as those native parasites which have spread from within Africa. This covers the well-known witchweeds and broomrapes but also groups and species that have received less attention including mistletoes, dodders, rice vampireweed, or those posing threats. It is well-illustrated by photos, graphs and species’ distribution maps. Available now as ebook and hardback:
