The biology of plantparasitic nematodes is discussed, namely culturing, nutrition, and physiology of parasitism, as applying to plant nematode.
RAPD analysis of somaclonal variants derived from embryo callus cultures of peach
This study demonstrates the feasibility of using RAPD markers to identify somaclonal variants of peach and provides evidence for the existence of genetic differences among these variants.
Investigations of the Host Range of the Corn Cyst Nematode, Heterodera zeae, from Maryland.
The host range of the corn cyst nematode, Heterodera zeae, recently detected in Maryland, was investigated and plants of the Gramineae included 11 tribes, 33 genera, 42 species, and 77 entries were inoculated with cysts.
Plant and soil nematodes: societal impact and focus for the future.
The safety and sustainability of U.S. food and fiber production depends on public and administrative understanding of the importance of nematodes, the drastic effects of Nematodes on many agricultural and horticultural crops, and the current research priorities of nem atology.
Growth, Development, and Response of Peach Somaclones to the Root-knot Nematode, Meloidogyne incognita
Under in vitro conditions, significant differences among uninfected (control) regenerants, cultivars, and rootstock 'Nemaguard' were observed for shoot height and fresh root weights, but differences were not observed between control and infected regenerants.
Studies On the Culturing and Parasitism of Plant-Parasitic Nematodes, in Particular Ditylenchus Dipsaci and Aphelenchoides Ritzeiwabosi On Alfalfa Tissues
Neither nematodes nor the conditions under which plants or tissues were grown affected qualitatively the sugars or organic acids, and affected only two of the 23 major amino acids identified.
