Abstract

As an endoparasite, growth and development of Rafflesia occurred inside the host tissue. This cryptic habit is one factor hindering our understanding on how the relationship of host-parasite began. The anatomical study on host-parasite tissue is the approached used in this study. Using infected root tissue of Rafflesia patma, anatomical figures depicting the early event of infection to perfect stage of a flower was derived. However, more study is still required to completely represent the whole life growth and development of Rafflesia during its early stage as endophyte.
