  • The conservation and translocation of threatened holoparasitic flowering plants provide added challenges due to their complete host dependency and often large knowledge gaps of their autecology. Here, we present the first successful, quantified field trial to establish from seed populations of dactylanthus (Dactylanthus taylorii, Mystropetalaceae), a threatened New Zealand endemic root-holoparasitic angiosperm. Establishment was monitored at four sites at Waipapa, Pureora Forest Park. The… CONTINUE READING
