What Is The Symbiotic Relationship Between Rafflesia Plant And A Vine

The corpse flower and its host have a very intimate relationship. From the start, Rafflesia burrows into the Tetrastigma's tissues, growing as thread-like strands in direct contact with the surrounding vine's cells. They are so dependant on their host that the corpse flowers have even lost the ability to make chlorophyll, a requirement for photosynthesis, and thus defy the very nature of being a plant by being unable to produce food from sunlight. These parasites feed off their host vines, growing and growing until they finally erupt, dramatically if briefly, into large, rubbery flowers that stink like rotting flesh.

What's truly remarkable about this study is that the rate of gene transfer between the vine and its parasitic corpse flower is as high as rates of lateral gene transfer seen in bacteria. Never before have scientists thought that horizontal gene transfer could play such a pivotal role in the evolution of plants and animals, let alone in parasite-host relationships. Given that parasites make up for an astounding 40% of the species on Earth, these findings are bound to transform our understanding of evolutionary processes and how we ended up with the diversity of life we see today.

The rafflesia is a parasitic plant that digs invisibly into a host vine that is a member of the grape family. The host vine hangs down from the rain forest. In places where it hits the ground, during a predictable time, a lump appears in the vine's bark that gets bigger and bigger until it emerges as an orange globe. The globe continues growing until it becomes a cabbage-lik bud. When a bud opens into a flower the image is reminiscent of the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Except when the flower is blooming the entire Rafllesia is underground.

Episode 1 of The Green Planet specifically hones in on the tropical worlds that our plant life call home. With most of the focus on the rainforest, a lot of this 50 minute episode tackles both the symbiotic relationship between plants and animals, along with unique battles from a plants-eye view.

In Super Metroid Samus Eaters appear in the red section of Brinstar, and somewhat resemble red Venus flytraps in appearance. They can be seen on either the ground or ceiling. Some of these carnivorous plants have an infinite amount of Zebbos flying out of them, while others have Yapping Maws growing within their mouths, suggesting the plants have the capacity to build symbiotic relationships with the mentioned creatures.

Okay, so some endangered plants consume prey and digest them alive in their pitchers. But surely, other plants, especially the flowering ones, must be friendly? Surprisingly, the answer is no. The rafflesia flower is one of the largest flowers in the world, spanning nearly three feet across and weighing up to 24 pounds. However, unlike other flowers, this one is parasitic, and depends on another plant called the Tetrastigma for food. Fungi-like strands extend from the rafflesia flower, worming themselves into the vines of the Tetrastigma, sucking nutrients away. To make this flower even creepier, natives in Southeastern Asia called it the 'corpse flower,' named for the delicious smell of rotting meat emanating from its petals. People aren't too interested in poaching this smelly flower, but destruction of its habitat is a prime reason for its endangered status.

Endangered species are species that are in danger of going extinct. Although we usually think of animals as endangered, many plants are as well. Plants form an important base for our ecosystem, making their endangerment status a big concern. Attenborough's pitcher plant is a carnivorous plant that traps insects in a sticky sap inside a large basin. It's only found in the high mountains of the Philippines. The rafflesia flower, or corpse flower, is a unique plant with no stems or leaves that lives in a parasitic relationship with a local vine in Southeast Asia. One of the oldest organisms on Earth, Welwitschia mirabilis is an endangered plant over 2,000 years old in the deserts of Nambia. Lastly, the manchineel tree is a death trap to unsuspecting travelers. Found in South America and Florida, its small yellow fruits are poisonous enough to kill and other parts of the tree can be extremely irritating, causing seriously painful rashes.

Mycorrhizal. A symbiotic association between the roots of a (woody) vascular plant and a fungus. Two basic types include ectomycorrhizae, which occur only on the root surface and endomycorrhizae where the fungal hyphae occur inside the tree root. This photo from Baird andRiopel (1986, Can. J. Bot. 64:710-717) shows a scanning electron micrograph of a Conopholis americana (squawroot, Scrophulariaceae) seedling initiating a haustorial connection (white arrow) to a micorrhizal root of Quercus.
