Quick Reference

(dodder; family Convolvulaceae)

A genus of climbing plants that are parasitic on many crop plants, to which they can cause serious damage. They have no green tissue, but thin, herbaceous stems and small flowers in ebracteate clusters. There are about 145 species of tropical and temperate regions. They have become widespread along with the host plants.
