New Book: Parasitic Flowering Plants

I am delighted to introduce you a fantastic book (shown above) on Parasitic Flowering Plants (of the world) by Dr. Henning S. Heide-Jorgensen who gave me the rare opportunity and honour to contribute some of my photographs of our native parasitic plants, namely, Lepionurus sylvestris, Olax scandens, Scleropyrum wallichianum, Cassytha filiformis and Striga asiatica.

More information on the book can be found in Dr. Hennings' website:

Here below are three other parasitic beauties I have documented from our forests (and the fourth is a saprophyte):

What are you waiting for! Go buy this great 438-page reference book!

cheers : )
