DescriptionThe biology, pathology, and systematics of dwarf mistletoes are recently and well reviewed in Hawksworth and Wiens (1996). That monograph forms the basis for the text in this and chapter 5 and should be consulted for more information (for example, references, photographs, and distribution maps). In addition to extracting the information that would be most relevant to forest managers and arborists, we here include new references on hosts, distributions, and ecology. The synonymy in this chapter is neither formal nor complete; rather, we provide additional names used in previous, significant literature (such as Gill 1935, Hawksworth and Wiens 1972, Kuijt 1955).
