Abstract:

The parasitic lifestyle in plants has always been the subject of curiosity of scientists, but during the last decade our understanding of parasitic plant—host interaction has greatly evolved due to rapid advances in molecular and genomic tools, especially such as high throughput DNA sequencing, transcriptomics and metabolomics. The latest findings take the science of parasitic plants to a higher level and open up new horizons in parasitic plant management. The discovery of a novel family of phytohormones, the strigolactones [5,6], and their involvement in host detection and evolution of parasitic plants [7,8], the detection of the information exchange between host and parasite [9]; and the elucidation of the host defense mechanisms suppression by the parasites [10] have led to a deeper understanding of physiological processes in host-parasite interaction. In the light of recent achievements, the re-evaluation of control management, including crop breeding, and molecular genetics is on the agenda. Finally, 11 papers were collected for the SI; of them, five original research papers present new strategies in parasitic weeds management [11–15], two focused on crop resistance to parasitic plants [16,17] and three provide new insights on plant—parasite interaction [18–20].
