SIM is a fully featured, commercially available database management system based on a semantic data model similar to Hammer and McLeod's SDM SIM has two primary modeling goals. The first is to narrow the gap between a user's real-world perception of data and the conceptual view imposed by the database system because of modeling presuppositions or(More)
Pratylenchus thornei is a major pathogen of wheat in Australia. Two glasshouse experiments with four wheat cultivars that had different final populations (Pf) of P. thornei in the field were used to optimise conditions for assessing resistance. With different initial populations (Pi) ranging up to 5250 P. thornei/kg soil, Pf of P. thornei increased to 16(More)
The root-lesion nematodes (RLN) Pratylenchus thornei and P. neglectus are widely distributed in Australian grain producing regions and can reduce the yield of intolerant wheat cultivars by up to 65 %, costing the industry ~123 M AUD/year. Consequently, researchers in the northern, southern and western regions have independently developed procedures to(More)
The root lesion nematode Pratylenchus thornei is widely distributed in Australian wheat (Triticum aestivum) producing regions and can reduce yield by more than 50%, costing the industry AU$50 M/year. Genetic resistance is the most effective form of management but no commercial cultivars are resistant (R) and the best parental lines are only moderately R.(More)
