Abstract

Loranthaceae are shrubs that form clumps more or less important on branches of trees and on other wild or cultivated shrubs. These parasites of woody plants can cause extensive damages in agroecosystems. The present investigation carried in the Ndogbong Chiefdom’s orchard found three Loranthaceae species: Phragmanthera batangae (Engler) S. Balle, P. capitata (Sprengel) S. Balle and Tapinanthus preussii (Engler) Van Teghem. These parasites were found on 10 woody species over 11: Citrus spp., Dacryodes edulis (G. Don) H. J. Lam., Garcinia kola Heckel., Manniophyton fulvum Müll.-Arg. Persea americana Mill., Psidium guajava Linn., Theobroma cacao L. and Spondias mangifera Willd. Mangifera indica L. was the only species which was resistant. The rate of parasitism in the orchard was 59.18% and P. capitata was the most represented parasite with (97.38%). A research program on sensitive and resistant plants to parasitism would be essential to fighting effectively against Loranthaceae.
