A survey of angiosperm parasites on vegetation of Modibbo Adama University of Technology Yola using quadrant method measuring 100m x 100m for 20 quadrant. A total number of (14) different types of host plants species were identified these include, Eucalyptus, Mangifera indica, Acacia seyel, Vittelaria paradoxa, Anacardium, Azadiracta indica, Pakia bigblobosa, Lycopersicum esculantum, ficus thoningi, Citrus sinensis, Helianthus annuus, vitex doniana, Afzelia AfricanaThe result shows that plants without parasites (angiosperm) are the dominant over those with parasites. Six (6) different parasites plants were also identified these are Loranthus, Mistletoes, Cuscuta, Oranbonche, striga, Cassytha. Mistletoes was found with the highest distribution attacking about five (5) different host species (Eucalyptus, Acacia seyel, pakia bigblosa, Adansonia digitata, Afzelia Africana) making it the most dominant parasitic plant in the study area.
