These experiments provide further evidence that the Ti-plasmid is responsible for the oncogenic properties of A tumefaciens and for its capacity to induce “opine” synthesis in Crown-gall plant cells.
Effects of plant phenylpropanoid pathway products and selected terpenoids and alkaloids on the behaviour of the plant-parasitic nematodes Radopholus similis, Pratylenchus penetrans and Meloidogyne…
A broad spectrum evaluation was made of the effects of phenylpropanoids (simple phenolics and flavonoids) and selected monoterpenoids and alkaloids on the behaviour of the migratory endoparasites Radopholus similis and Pratylenchus penetrans and the sedentary endoparsite Meloidogyne incognita and found Flavonols stood out as repellent compounds for both these nematode species.
Achievements and Challenges
This chapter highlights the core achievements within the science of Nematology in South Africa since 1982. In addition, the editors have attempted to highlight for the benefit of future decision…

Nematode pests threatening soybean production in South Africa, with reference to Meloidogyne
It is important that lessons learned through extensive research on soybean-nematode interactions in South Africa be shared with researchers and industries in other countries as they might experience or expect similar problems and/or challenges.
