Effects of Light, Scarification, and Gibberellic Acid on Seed Germination of Eight Pedicularis Species from Yunnan, China
For many species, scarification was effective to promote seed germination, but neither 100 nor 500 mg center dot L-1 GA(3) had consistent promoting effects, and Wet-habitat species generally had positive photoblastic responses.
Nutrient requirements differ in two Pedicularis species in the absence of a host plant: implication for driving forces in the evolution of host preference of root hemiparasitic plants.

Distinct interspecific traits in growth and nutrient requirements can be driving forces for the differential interactions between hemiparasites and their hosts.
Long-Distance Dispersal after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) Led to the Disjunctive Distribution of Pedicularis kansuensis (Orobanchaceae) between the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and Tianshan Region

It is concluded that P. kansuensis colonized the TSR after the LGM, and the improbable long-distance dispersal by wind or water across arid land seed flow may well have had birds or men as vector.
Mycorrhizal and dark septate endophytic fungi of Pedicularis species from northwest of Yunnan Province, China
Heavy colonization suggested a significant ecological role of these fungi and their potential to be applied to successful cultivation of these intractable plants.
Inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi suppresses initiation of haustoria in the root hemiparasite Pedicularis tricolor.
The significant role of AM fungi in haustorium initiation of parasitic plants was demonstrated for the first time and a route to development of new biocontrol strategies in management of parasitic weeds is provided.
A neglected alliance in battles against parasitic plants: arbuscular mycorrhizal and rhizobial symbioses alleviate damage to a legume host by root hemiparasitic Pedicularis species.

Despite their ubiquitous distribution and significant ecological roles, soil microorganisms have long been neglected in investigations addressing parasitic plant-host interactions. Because nutrient…
Host Dependence and Preference of the Root Hemiparasite, Pedicularis cephalantha Franch. (Orobanchaceae)
This is the first report of the performance of Chinese Pedicularis species in cultivation throughout all life stages (from seeds to seeds) and the high dependence of P. cephalantha on host plants and its host preference were demonstrated in this study.
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi: potential biocontrol agents against the damaging root hemiparasite Pedicularis kansuensis?

The hypothesis that inoculation with AM fungi will cause growth depression in P. kansuensis and reduce its damage to host plants was tested and the potential of AM fungi as biocontrol agents against the damaging hemiparasite was confirmed.
Host shoot clipping depresses the growth of weedy hemiparasitic Pedicularis kansuensis

Results showed that host clipping significantly suppressed the growth of weedy P. kansuensis, but did not affect biomass accumulation in E. nutans, and it is proposed that grazing (a dominant way of causing host damage in the field) may have a potential in the control against the weedy hemiparasite.
Identity and distribution of weedy Pedicularis kansuensis Maxim. (Orobanchaceae) in Tianshan Mountains of Xinjiang: morphological, anatomical and molecular evidence

Anatomical investigations and field observations showed that the target species is an annual or biennial herb, which also fits with the life cycle as P. kansuensis, which is mainly concentrated in the Tianshan Mountains of Xinjiang.
