    Root hemiparasitic plants interact with their host plants through parasitism and competition. Here we modeled this interaction via extending the well-known Rosenzweig-MacArthur predator-prey model to cover both competition for light and intra-specific parasitism among hemiparasites. We showed that at very low productivities, there are only a few poor hosts and hemiparasites have no chance to persist. As productivity increases, there is a range of productivity where both plant types coexist. Finally, a further increase in productivity gets the system out of the coexistence range, and only host plants survive. This final prediction successfully explains patterns observed in empirical data.
