Rohde and Jenkins (4) found accelerated cell maturation and no root cap or region of elongation in tomato roots parasitized by T. christiei. A modification of the technique described by Radewald, et aL (3), was used in the(More)

De Grisse (2) described small chambers made of nylon mesh and glass tubing for(More)
