Ty/odorus are most frequently found in soils in the vicinity of Adelaide and southward, but do extend as far north as the lower Flinders Ranges. All specimens recovered are the same species, and show affinities with T. aeuminatus Meagher, 1963. The South Australian specimens differ from T. aeuminatus in having a longer, more filiform tail, longer stylet and(More)
During a survey of plant parasitic nematodes associated with native vegetation in Australia, two new species of Paratrichodorus were found. Paratrichodorus orrae n.sp. was collected from Eucalyptus woodland and P. queenslandensis n.sp, from tropical rainforest, both closely resembling P. grandis. Paratrichodorus lobatus and the closely related P. teres are(More)

In a continuing study of the distribution of plant parasitic nematodes in Australian bushland soils, numerous species have been collected. These include criconematids or ring nematodes and sheath nematodes. The distribution of these nematodes in Australia is poorly known, and most records, where available, are from single soil sampies from individual sites.(More)

timber, veneer, chips, particles or pulp. Here value can be severely affected by microbial activity in the wood In the standing tree, or in the post-harvest log or in use. Talking in very rough figures, about ten percent of the annual value of agricultural crops is thought to be lost due to microbial attack on the living plant. The corresponding figure for(More)
The drought period probably maximised infection because the drier soil was more aerated. Mitchell and Zentmeyer (8) demonstrated that the degree of sporangiai formation by P. cryptogea and other Phytophthora spp. is dependent on the C02 and 02 concentrations in the soil. Optimum sporangial formation occurred in normal air. Therefore, it is reasonable to(More)
