THE GENUS NACOBBUS THORNE & ALLEN, 1944 (NEMATODA: PRATYLENCHIDAE): SYSTEMATICS, DISTRIBUTION, BIOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT
The results of host and field studies conducted in North and South America indicate that N. aberrans populations can be separated into bean, potato and sugarbeet groups, which have distinct host preferences and do not reproduce on graminaceous species or on leguminous species of the genera Medicago and Lupinus.

Distribution of Species of Potato Cyst-Nematodes in South America
Twenty six populations of potato cyst-nematodes from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia were examined and identified as Heterodera rostochiensis Woll. or H. pallida Stone. North of 15.6°S only H.… Expand
Bioprospecting in potato fields in the Central Andean Highlands: screening of rhizobacteria for plant growth-promoting properties.

- 1 March 2013
To isolate rhizobacteria from Andean ecosystems, and to identify those with PGP properties, a total of 585 bacterial isolates were obtained from eight potato fields in the Andes and they were screened for suppression of Phytophthora infestans and Rhizoctonia solani. Expand
Identification of mVOCs from Andean Rhizobacteria and Field Evaluation of Bacterial and Mycorrhizal Inoculants on Growth of Potato in its Center of Origin
The strategy followed in the VALORAM project may offer a template for the future isolation and determination of putative biocontrol and plant growth-promoting agents, useful as part of a low-input integrated pest management system. Expand
Environmental biosafety and transgenic potato in a centre of diversity for this crop
Study of genetically modified potato clones that provide resistance to nematodes, principal pests of Andean potato crops, shows that there is no harm to many non-target organisms, but gene flow occurs to wild relatives growing near potato crops. Expand
Characterisation of amphimictic and parthenogenetic populations of Pratylenchus bolivianus Corbett, 1983 (Nematoda: Pratylenchidae) and their phylogenetic relationships with closely related species
The phylogenetic study, which included sequences of other root-lesion nematodes, a topotype and geographical distant populations of P. bolivianus and P. zeae, revealed that the two species formed highly supported clades in the majority consensus trees. Expand
Effect of temperature on hatching and multiplication of potato cyst-nematodes.
- J. Franco
There were no fundamental differences between British and Peruvian populations but a Peruvian population (from Otuzco) seemed well adapted to a wide range of temperatures. Expand
Description of Thecavermiculatus andinus n.sp. (Meloidoderidae), a Round Cystoid Nematode from the Andes Mountains of Peru.
This new species differs markedly front the other two species in the genus, especially in having a much greater female vulval-anal distance and annules with lined punctation on most of the female body with a lacelike pattern restricted to the posterior portion, particularly at the vulva and anus which do not protrude.

First report of a 16SrIII phytoplasma (X-disease group) affecting bell pepper, strawberry (frutilla), Schinus molle and Arracacia xanthorrhiza in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
A molecular diagnostic method for detecting Nacobbus in soil and in potato tubers
For the first time, Nacobbus was detected in soil and tuber samples using molecular approaches and has important applications not only in analysing advisory samples but also in the screening of material for quarantine purposes. Expand
