A checklist of Mistletoes of Nepal

Latest version published by International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development on Mar 1, 2021 International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development

This dataset lists 21 species of Mistletoes compiled from literature resources as indicated in the dataset. Mistletoes constitute a polyphyletic group of flowering parasitic plants and are commonly known as “Ainjeru” or “Lisso” in Nepali. Mistletoes are entirely dependent on their hosts for water and nutrients and affect their hosts mainly by competing for limited resources.
