Industrial waste sites, although extremely difficult to revegetate, may be suitable for rare plants such as Orobanche lutea that are condemned to extinction due to their low ability to compete in their natural habitats. The presence of potentially toxic metals seems to facilitate the expansion of O. lutea (parasitizing Medicago falcata) and was found in hundreds of exemplars per m2 in south Poland and potentially could spread to other localities, causing yield loss in agricultural plants.

Culturable endophytic bacteria from Phelipanche ramosa (Orobanchaceae) seeds
This study isolate and characterize the seed endophyte and surface bacteria of the most aggressive and widespread broomrape weed, Phelipanche ramosa, and isolated two endophytic bacteria from within the seeds which are closely related to Brevibacterium frigoritolerans and Bacillus simplex described as soil bacteria, highly resistant to environmental conditions, and as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria.

Pollen biology of the serpentine-endemic Orobanche nowackiana (Orobanchaceae) from Albania
The holoparasite flowering plant Orobanche nowackiana Markgr. is a rare endemic plant that parasitises the Ni hyperaccumulator species Alyssum murale Waldst. and Kit. in Komjan Mt. (Albania). TheExpand
Holoparasitic plant–host interactions and their impact on Mediterranean ecosystems
Although photosynthesis is essential to sustain life on Earth, not all plants use sunlight to synthesize nutrients from carbon dioxide and water. Holoparasitic plants, which are important inExpand
Phytochemical parasite-host relations and interactions: A Cistanche armena case study.
The results highlight the importance of C. armena as a promising source of functional and bioactive ingredients (harvested from potential cultivation, not from natural endangered localities) and also draws the attention of future researchers to an important aspect regarding the parasite organ and the host's influence on the harvested material of various parasitic herbs.

Orobanche lutea Baumg. (Orobanchaceae) in Poland: revised distribution, taxonomy, phytocoenological and host relations
The greatest density of sites with probably the most abundant populations in Europe is in the central part of Silesia-Cracow Upland, which, by several hundred years, was heavily exploited for calamine mining and resulted in the formation of large areas of gangue containing toxic heavy metals.

Mycorrhizal-Based Phytostabilization of Zn–Pb Tailings: Lessons from the Trzebionka Mining Works (Southern Poland)
The chapter summarizes the research on the role of mycorrhiza in phytostabilization of heavy-metal-rich tailings from the ZG Trzebionka (southern Poland) industrial sites. The deposited substratum isExpand
Establishment of arbuscular mycorrhizal plants originating from xerothermic grasslands on heavy metal rich industrial wastes–new solution for waste revegetation
The results suggest that inocula from dry calcareous grasslands are potentially useful in revegetation of industrial wastes and the interactions between mycorrhizal and non-mycorrhiza plants were studied under greenhouse conditions and at least no negative effect of this coexistence was found. Expand
Phylogeny and origins of holoparasitism in Orobanchaceae.
There is a single origin of parasitism, and from within the hemiparasites, holoparasitism has originated three times. Expand
Seed productivity in relation to other shoot features for endangered parasitic plant Orobanche picridis F.W. Schultz (Orobanchaceae)
Investigations into potential and real seed productivity in Orobanche picridis are presented for the first time and the research hypothesis is to show that the studied traits of shoots show the highest correlation with the production of seeds. Expand
Does co-inoculation of Lactuca serriola with endophytic and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi improve plant growth in a polluted environment?
Phytoremediation of polluted sites can be improved by co-inoculation with mycorrhizal and endophytic fungi. In this study, the effects of single- and co-inoculation of Lactuca serriola with anExpand
Are Mycorrhiza Always Beneficial?
It is concluded that ectomycorrhiza formation may have a detrimental rather than a beneficial effect on plants’ productivity during their establishment and early developmental stages, and that this depends on the amount of N available to the plant, on the nutritional status and on the age of the plant.

New localities of Orobanche bartlingii Griseb. in the Silesian-Cracow Upland as a result of the spread of Libanotis pyrenaica (L.) Bourg. due to the changes in land use
It is shown that the expansion of L. pyrenaica caused by changes in land use promotes spreading of O. bartlingii, a species rare in Poland and Europe, and the known distribution of the species is supplemented. Expand
Identification of sources of resistance to crenate broomrape (Orobanche crenata) in Spanish lentil (Lens culinaris) germplasm
The weedy root parasite Orobanche crenata constitutes a serious threat to lentils and other legumes grown in the Mediterranean and western Asia. Control strategies have centred on agronomic practicesExpand
Intra-Specific Diversity of Seed Productivity and Morphological Features in Parasitic Species Orobanche bartlingii Griseb. (Orobanchaceae)
It is found that higher individuals were characterized by a greater number of flowers, a higher seed production, a longer corolla tube and a higher number of seeds in the ovary no matter on which slope exposure they grew. Expand
