Overview of parasites and benefits of parasites for health.
Parasites (Loranthus) is a type of plant that usually hitches a ride on other plants and has the property of sucking food from the plant it is riding on, parasites are also obligate plants which are types of plants that live and grow on the stems of other plants. Parasites can usually be found easily on trees that are already large in tropical climates, the seeds of this plant will produce the sap in the form of glue or sticky jelly.
Parasites usually absorb food from the host tree, so that it can harm the host of the tree in which it lives, and if left parasites can grow rapidly and many, so that it can cause the host plant to thin and eventually dry and die by itself. This parasitic plant distribution pattern occurs with the assistance of birds, this is because if birds eat fruit and seeds and then excrete in certain tree branches, the sticky seeds will stick to the branches or tree trunks and will then germinate, and begin to grow young parasites.
