Among root knot nematodes of the genus Meloidogyne, the polyploid obligate mitotic parthenogens M. arenaria, M. javanica, and M. incognita are widespread and common agricultural pests. Although these named forms are distinguishable by closely related mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplotypes, detailed sequence analyses of internal transcribed spacers (ITSs) of(More)
Root-knot nematodes (genus Meloidogyne) have been the subject of recent and numerous studies of genetic variation because of the need to develop molecular diagnostics for the four globally distributed, parthenogenetic species that are significant agricultural pests. Our analysis of Meloidogyne mtDNA improves on previous studies: (i) by examining restriction(More)
Mitochondrial DNA of the root knot nematode Meloidogyne hapla was investigated for intraspecific diversity and divergence from other parthenogenetic root knot nematodes. A 1,900-bp fragment containing COII, tRNAHis, 16S rRNA, ND3 and Cyt b genes has been cloned and sequenced from one individual and an 1,188-bp region within this region was sequenced from(More)
With increasing efforts to promote free markets, one must ask whether the impact on some agricultural producers may be less than desirable. Small producers with limited access to capital, technical assistance, and competitive buyers may be unable to participate in new marketing opportunities. Without recommending a return to heavy government, this article(More)
Mitochondrial DNA of the root knot nematode Meloidogyne hapla was investigated for intraspecific diversity and divergence from other parthenogenetic root knot nematodes. A 1,900-bp fragment containing COII, tRNAHi”, 16s rRNA, ND3 and Cyt b genes has been cloned and sequenced from one individual and an 1,188-bp region within this region was sequenced from(More)
GROWTH AND V?ELFARE LOSSES FROM CARBON EMISSIONS RESTRICTIONS: A GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM ANALYSIS FOR EGYPT* This paper is an assessment for a particular country, Egypt, of the economic effects, under various conditions, of carbon emission restrictions. Like other work, it is an exemplification of some of the economic possibilities. However, it extends the(More)
