Abstract: Understanding the role of photosynthesis in the holoparasitic genus Cuscuta may give insights into the biology and evolution of these plants. We hypothesised that light irradiance on the node of C. racemosa is important for sustaining the growth of the new shoot through photosynthesis. We blocked light irradiance on the node of detached twigs of C. racemosa for one week and measured twig fresh and dry weight, shoot length and photosynthetic pigment content. Even though fresh and dry weight did not differ betwe… Show more
