Suppressive Impact of Glucosinolates in Brassica Vegetative Tissues on Root Lesion Nematode Pratylenchus neglectus
2-phenylethyl glucosinolate has a role in the suppressive impact of Brassica spp. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and the evolution of host plant associations in the nematode genus Fergusobia (Tylenchida: Fergusobiinae).
Phylogenetic analysis of sequences from D2/D3 and mtCOI, separately and combined, revealed many monophyletic clades within Fergusobia, which supported a monophylets within a paraphyletic Howardula. Expand
Yield Loss Caused by Pratylenchus thornei on Wheat in South Australia.
There was a significant linear relationship between initial density of P. thornei and Warigal grain yield (t/ha) and the yield of the two resistant lines was not affected by initial density, suggesting that both were tolerant as well as resistant in the field. Expand
The nematode genus Fergusobia (Nematoda: Neotylenchidae): molecular phylogeny, descriptions of clades and associated galls, host plants and Fergusonina fly larvae
A key to the species and morphospecies of nematodes collected from Corymbia, Angophora, Metrosideros, Syzygium, narrow-leaved Melaleuca, and Eucalyptus is presented. Expand
The biology and associations of Fergusobia (Nematoda) from the Melaleuca leucadendra-complex in eastern Australia.
Together, these taxa form a putative monophyletic group, apparently restricted to species of Melaleuca in the broad-leaved M. leucadendra-complex, from coastal Queensland and north-east New South Wales, Australia. Expand
New Plant-Parasitic Nematode from the Mostly Mycophagous Genus Bursaphelenchus Discovered inside Figs in Japan
A new nematode species found in syconia of a fig species, Ficus variegata during a field survey of fig-associated nematodes in Japan, which has a well-developed stylet and pharyngeal glands and expands the knowledge of the potential morphological, physiological and developmental plasticity of the genus Bursaphelenchus.

Evidence for a role of cutinase in pathogenicity of Pyrenopeziza brassicae on brassicas
Supernatants from apple cutin-induced cultures of the light leaf spot pathogen Pyrenopeziza brassicae were shown to contain a single esterase, suggesting a functional role for fungal cutinolytic activity in pathogenicity of P. Brassicae. Expand
Characterization of resistance to Pratylenchus thornei (Nematoda) in wheat (Triticum aestivum): attraction, penetration, motility, and reproduction.
Lines from a cross between two wheat (Triticum aestivum) cultivars with contrasting resistance phenotypes to Pratylenchus thornei (Nematoda) were investigated to determine the stage at whichExpand
Morphological and molecular analysis of six aphelenchoidoids from Australian conifers and their relationship to Bursaphelenchus (Fuchs, 1937)
Bayesian phylogenetic analyses of SSU, LSU and COI of the six nematode species revealed that none of these Australian aphelenchoidoids was inferred to be closely related to Bursaphelenchus. Expand
