The nature of the intestinal vesicle in nematodes of the family steinernematidae
There appears to be considerable variation in the morphology of the intestinal vesicle in the infective larvae of different steinernematids. Expand

The development of giant cells induced by the nematode Meloidogyne in tomato roots has been followed under controlled growth conditions and the ultrastructure and histochemistry of these structuresExpand
Some observations on the influence of agricultural practices on the nematode faunae of some South Australian soils
La densite et la diversite des nematodes presents dans trois types de sols provenant de trois localites ont ete observees pendant les mois de septembre a novembre. Les nombres varient de 157 a 4027Expand
Ultrastructural changes in the nematode Anguina tritici associated with anhydrobiosis.
Morphological differences between anhydrobiotic and active second-stage larvae of Anguina tritici have been detected by means of conventional and freeze-etch techniques and morphological redistribution of lipid, both in the cuticle and in the droplets is considered to be an important factor in the ability of these nematodes to survive in the dry state.

The Incorporation of Photosynthates by Meloidogyne javanica.
The root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne javanica, incorporated (1)C from its host after exposure of the plant to ( 1)CO, and this rate was found to be related to the nematodes's physiological age and reached its peak at the time egg-laying commenced, after which it started to decline. Expand
Quantitative studies on the growth of syncytia induced in plants by root knot nematodes
Growth of the nematode was most rapid between the completion of moulting and the commencement of egg laying and continued at a decreased rate for the rest of the experiment and the DNA content of individual syncytial nuclei was extremely variable at all harvests. Expand
Observations on the use of insect parasitic nematodes as a means of biological control of root-knot nematodes
Pot experiments showed that S. glaseri, when applied at high concentration at one application or at a lower application daily over 10 days, significantly reduced the numbers and reproductive capacity of M. javanica, and the application of larve of S.glaseri led to the production of significantly larger plants.
