    order of plants distinguished by having a one-celled inferior ovary; many are parasitic or partly parasitic usually on roots


  1. Santalales

    The Santalales are an order of flowering plants with a cosmopolitan distribution, but heavily concentrated in tropical and subtropical regions. Most have seeds without testae, which is unusual for flowering plants. Many of the members of the order are parasitic plants, mostly hemiparasites, able to produce sugars through photosynthesis, but tapping the stems or roots of other plants to obtain water and minerals; some are obligate parasites, have low concentrations of chlorophyll within their shoots, and derive the majority of their sustenance from their hosts' vascular tissues. Mistletoe is the common name for a number of parasitic plants within the order Santalales. The APG III system of 2009 uses this circumscription: ⁕order Santalales ⁕family Balanophoraceae ⁕family Loranthaceae ⁕family Misodendraceae ⁕family Olacaceae ⁕family Opiliaceae ⁕family Santalaceae ⁕family Schoepfiaceae The AP-Website indicates the Olacaceae are not a good family and should be split. Furthermore, it indicates disagreements about Santalaceae which need to include Viscaceae to be monophyletic. Studies based on DNA sequences also indicate the family Schoepfiaceae should be resurrected to accommodate Schoepfia, Arjona and Quinchamalium.
