For example, restricted dispersal of Vaccinium myrtillus, Rhinanthus minor, Rumex acetosa, Cicerbita alpina, Trollius europaeus and Campanula thyrsoides appears to be the foremost reason for the patchy distribution, because seeds added manually to unoccupied sites resulted in successful germination (Lindgren et al, 2007; Frei et al.

The first responses during haustorial initiation are cortical enlargement and increasing cell division, resulting in lateral or apical protuberances in the parasite root similar to other Orobanchaceae, such as Bartsia, Lathraea, Melampyrum, Pedicularis and Rhinanthus (Heckard 1962, Dobbins & Kuijt 1973a, Weber & Weberling 1975, Riopel & Timko 1995).
