  • Descrição: Cuscuta spp represent a unique group of holoparasitic dicotyledonous plants which can infect nearly all dicotyledonous species. Lacking roots and leaves, these parasitic plants are completely dependent on nutrients, carbohydrates and water from host plants. The physical connection between parasite and host is mediated by specific organs, called haustoria, which connect the vascular tissues from both plants. Here we review the fascinating life cycle of Cuscuta spp and also the ecological aspects and problems related to Cuscuta spp infestations. For prevention purposes, different biotechnological approaches including hosts which show a resistance to Cuscuta spp are suggested.
