Caption: Mistletoe on tree. Large mistletoe plant (yellow or light green) growing from a branch of a eucalyptus tree (grey-green). Mistletoes, family Viscaceae, are parasitic plants that have chlorophyll but no roots. They develop tendrils which grow into the branches of the host plant and absorb water and minerals. The parasite is spread as seeds carried by birds, mainly the mistletoe bird. The effects of the mistletoe can kill parts of the host tree. Photographed in Victoria, Australia.
