Interactions between plant parasites & their hosts

Invasive species - blackberry

Join the investigation into the use of parasites as biological control agents.

We investigate the interactions between Cassytha pubescens - a native coiling hemi-parasite - and their host, particularly invasive species. The parasite infects weeds such as Scotch broom, gorse, and blackberry, on which it has much stronger negative effects than on native hosts.
