In this talk, Professor Watson, an international authority on the ecology of parasitic plants with a particular fondness for mistletoes, provides an overview of recent research on these plants.

As well as dispelling misconceptions (they’re neither toxic nor introduced, and if they necessarily killed trees, they would have died out millions of years ago) and emphasizing interactions with wildlife, he summarizes recent research evaluating their effect on overall biodiversity and ecosystem health.
