Intensive vegetable production areas were surveyed in the provinces of Almería (35 sites) and Barcelona (22 sites), Spain, to determine the incidence and identity of Meloidogyne spp. and of fungal parasites of nematode eggs. Two species of Meloidogyne were found in Almería-M. javanica (63% of the samples) and M. incognita (31%). Three species were found in(More)
Experiments were conducted to determine the effectiveness and profitability of the Mi-resistance gene in tomato in suppressing populations of Meloidogyne javanica in a plastic-house with a natural infestation of the nematode. Experiments were also conducted to test for virulence and durability of the resistance. Monika (Mi-gene resistant) and Durinta(More)
Population densities of the Mediterranean biotype of Tylenchulus semipenetrans were monitored in soil and citrus roots at 3-month intervals for 3 consecutive years in four citrus orchards in the provinces of Tarragona (Amposta and Xalamera) and Valencia (Moncada and Ca rcer). Nematode population densities in soil peaked once a year in April or July(More)
The response of four Mi-resistance gene tomato rootstocks to seven populations of Meloidogyne was determined in pot tests conducted in a glasshouse. Rootstocks PG76 (Solanum lycopersicum × Solanum sp.) and Brigeor (S. lycopersicum × S. habrochaites) and resistant cv. Monika (S. lycopersicum) were assessed against one population of M. arenaria, three of M.(More)
The present research was undertaken to evaluate the effects of soil temperature on the life cycle of root-knot nematodes (RKN) on zucchini-squash in growth chambers and to assess the relationship between Meloidogyne incognita soil population densities at planting (Pi), its multiplication rate, and crop losses of zucchini in field conditions.

A survey was conducted to assess the biodiversity and frequency of infection of fungal egg parasites of Meloidogyne spp. and relate results to soil properties in organic and integrated vegetable production in Spain. Forty sites were sampled at the end of the cropping cycle, 30 under integrated and ten under organic production. Fungal egg parasites were(More)
It is increasingly important to use the web 2.0 tools in teaching activities. This poster aims to show the usefulness of linking and embedding Web 2.0 tools with Moodle, specifically Google apps through a simple HTML element:"iframe". Moodle is a LMS without connection out of platform. With this HTML element you can display external content on the platform,(More)
