Diversity of Bacteria Associated with Bursaphelenchus xylophilus and Other Nematodes Isolated from Pinus pinaster Trees with Pine Wilt Disease
A high diversity of the microbial community associated with B. xylophilus and other nematodes isolated from P. pinaster with PWD showed the ability to produce siderophores and lipases enables these bacteria to have a role in plant physiological response.

A root-knot nematode parasitizing coffee in Paran State, Brazil, is described as Meloidogyne paranaensis n. sp. The suggested common name is Paraná coffee root-knot nematode. The perineal pattern is…
The pinewood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, in Madeira Island
The environmental conditions in Madeira Island are favorable for the presence and dissemination of the pinewood nematode (PWN), Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, and the species-specific diagnostic characters displayed by isolates displayed were similar to virulent isolates.
Meloidogyne luci, a new root‐knot nematode parasitizing potato in Portugal
M. luci is reported for the first time attacking potato in Portugal and pathogenicity to potato cultivars assessed in 16 commercial cultivars and compared with M. ethiopica.
Belowground Microbiota and the Health of Tree Crops
The methodological approaches to unravel the composition and function of belowground microbiota, the factors influencing their interaction with tree crops, their benefits and harms are summarized, with a focus on representative examples of Biological Control Agents used against relevant biotic constraints of tree crops.
Naphthoquinones from Walnut Husk Residues Show Strong Nematicidal Activities against the Root-knot Nematode Meloidogyne hispanica
Naphthoquinones exhibit important biological activities and are present in walnut husk residues in significant amounts. However, their potential as alternatives to synthetic nematicides has not been…
Nematicidal Bacteria Associated to Pinewood Nematode Produce Extracellular Proteases
Nematicidal assays revealed differences in nematicidal activity of the proteases to different species of Bursaphelenchus, suggesting its usefulness in a primary screen of the nematodes.
