Liatris punctata Picea engelmannii Delphinium occidentale Lolium temulentum Arceutholobium microcarpum Castilleja sulphurea Rhinanthus minor References fungus, it acquires the fungal toxins (the pyrrolizidine alkaloid loline). If Lolium was parasitized by Rhinanthus minor, a second transfer was observed into the hemiparasite, which could increase its fitness through this sequestration [33]. 5 Conclusions Alkaloids are not waste products but have evolved mainly as defense compounds against herbivores, but also against microbes, competing other plants, and even viruses.

It could be a target-site modification as observed for cardiac glycosides at the Naþ/Kþ-ATPase in Monarch butterflies [30] or simply sequestration in tissues or cells without corresponding targets. A comparable situation to insect specialists can be found in parasitic and hemiparasitic plants, another example of multitrophic interactions. In several instances it can be shown that the parasites can tap the xylem or phloem of their host plants and sequester the host alkaloids into their own system [2,31].
