Review of Pasteuria penetrans: Biology, Ecology, and Biological Control Potential.
Pasteuria penetrans is a mycelial, endospore-forming, bacterial parasite that has shown great potential as a biological control agent of root-knot nematodes. Considerable progress has been madeExpand

Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Meloidogyne mayaguensis Isolates from Florida.
The discovery of Meloidogyne mayaguensis is confirmed in Florida; this is the first report for the continental United States. Meloidogyne mayaguensis is a virulent species that can reproduce on hostExpand

Viability of Heterodera glycines Exposed to Fungal Filtrates.
Filtrates from nematode-parasitic fungi have been reported to be toxic to plant-parasitic nematodes. Our objective was to determine the effects of fungal filtrates on second-stage juveniles and eggsExpand

Persistence and Suppressiveness of Pasteuria penetrans to Meloidogyne arenaria Race.
The long-term persistence and suppressiveness of Pasteuria penetrans against Meloidogyne arenaria race 1 were investigated in a formerly root-knot nematode suppressive site following 9 years ofExpand

Phylogeny of Meloidogyne spp. based on 18S rDNA and the intergenic region of mitochondrial DNA sequences
The 18S rDNA of 19 populations of Meloidogyne spp. was amplified and directly sequenced. The region of mitochondrial DNA, located in the 3′ portion of the gene that codes for cytochrome oxidaseExpand

A Technique for Determining Live Second-stage Juveniles of Heterodera glycines.
We developed a quick and reliable technique to distinguish live and immobile (presumed dead) Heterodera glycines second-stage juveniles (J2) following their treatment with microbial cultureExpand

Suppression of Meloidogyne arenaria Race 1 by Soil Application of Endospores of Pasteuria penetrans.
The potential of Pasteuria penetrans for suppressing Meloidogyne arenaria race 1 on peanut (Arachis hypogaea) was tested over a 2-year period in a field microplot experiment. Endospores of P.Expand

A Centrifugation Method for Attaching Endospores of Pasteuria spp. to Nematodes.
Attachment of relatively low numbers of endospores from two isolates of Pasteuria spp. to several species of nematodes was consistently achieved in 2-5 minutes with a centrifugation technique. TheExpand

Pathogenicity of Fungi to Eggs of Heterodera glycines.
Twenty-one isolates of 18 fungal species were tested on water agar for their pathogenicity to eggs of Heterodera glycines. An egg-parasitic index (EPI) for each of these fungi was recorded on a scaleExpand

Efficacy of Various Application Methods of Fluensulfone for Managing Root-knot Nematodes in Vegetables.
Fluensulfone is a new nematicide in the flouroalkenyl chemical group. A field experiment was conducted in 2012 and 2013 to evaluate the efficacy of various application methods of fluensulfone forExpand
