Description: The mistletoes are a diverse group in the order Santales of shrubby, usually aerial, parasitic plants with fruits possessing a viscid layer (Kuijt 1968, 1969a). They are widely distributed geographically and as a group have a broad host range on conifers and other woody plants (Calder 1983). Many mistletoes are specially adapted for avian pollination and dispersal, and several avian species make extensive use of these resources (Kuijt 1969a, Watson 2001). The mistletoes are damaging pathogens of trees; and in many parts of the world are serious forest pests (Hawksworth 1983, Knutson 1983). General information on mistletoes is available at Calder and Berhhardt (1983), Cházaro and others (1992), Geils (2001a, 2001b), Gill and Hawksworth (1961), Kuijt (1969a), Mistletoe Center (2002), Nickrent (2002), Sinclare and others (1987), and Vega (1976).

Keywords: leafy mistletoe, true mistletoe, dwarf mistletoe, forest pathology, life history, silviculture, forest management
