Author's notes

Epiparasitism in action: "it could be that on closer inspection obligate Viscum articulatum can be found on almost-obligate Notothixos subaureus, this in turn on facultative Amyema congener, this in turn on the primary mistletoe Muellerina celastroides, itself parasitic on Allocasuarina torulosa." I will need a cherry-picker to analyse the plant(s) to find the primary mistletoe. Also need to check the Casuarina, as it's next to the river and more likely to be C. glauca?
