Viscaceae References

The database called "FAMULUS," originally compiled by the late Frank Hawksworth, contains thousands of references to Arceuthobium, Phoradendron, Viscum, etc. For this reason, it would be redundant to attempt to list all the references to Viscaceae in The Parasitic Plant Connection. Fortunately, Brian Geils (U.S. Forest Service, Flagstaff, AZ) has made this literature available via a Website. A basic search engine is now being developed that will support queries. If you need access to mistletoe literature, visit the Mistletoe Center.

The following list is not intended to be comprehensive but will get you started:
