DESS: a versatile solution for preserving morphology and extractable DNA of nematodes
TLDR
A solution containing dimethyl sulphoxide, disodium EDTA, and saturated NaCl (abbreviated here as DESS) was tested for various applications in the preservation of nematodes for combined morphological and molecular analyses, as well as its less hazardous chemical properties. Expand
A phylogenetic framework for root lesion nematodes of the genus Pratylenchus (Nematoda): Evidence from 18S and D2-D3 expansion segments of 28S ribosomal RNA genes and morphological characters.
TLDR
Morphological results suggest the need for sophisticated character discovery and analysis for morphology based phylogenetics in nematodes, and confirm among large numbers of geographical diverse isolates that most classical morphospecies are monophyletic. Expand
Systematics of cyst nematodes (Nematoda: Heteroderinae)
TLDR
Volume 8 in the series, appearing in two parts, deals with the systematics of cyst nematodes of the subfamily Heteroderinae, with complete descriptions and morphometrics of the 80 known valid species being provided and the species illustrated by 159 line drawings and photos. Expand
An integrated approach to fast and informative morphological vouchering of nematodes for applications in molecular barcoding
TLDR
It is argued that data-rich surveys and phylogenetic tools for analysis of barcode sequences are an essential component of the exploration of phyla with a high fraction of undiscovered species. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and diagnosis of soil and clinical isolates of Halicephalobus gingivalis (Nematoda: Cephalobina: Panagrolaimoidea), an opportunistic pathogen of horses.
TLDR
It is confirmed that free-living environmental isolates are potential sources of infection for horses and that diverse isolates can cause infections in horses within a relatively limited geographic region, and conversely that genetically similar sister taxa can be recovered from geographically distant localities. Expand
Phylogeny of Cephalobina (Nematoda): molecular evidence for recurrent evolution of probolae and incongruence with traditional classifications.
TLDR
For Cephalobidae, molecular trees do not support traditional genera as natural groups, but it remains untested if deconstructing probolae morphotypes or other structural features into finer component characters may reveal homologies that help delimit evolutionary lineages. Expand
The role of habitat heterogeneity in structuring the community of intertidal free-living marine nematodes
TLDR
The nematofauna of the structurally complex beach was more diverse than the one from a homogeneous beach nearby, supporting the hypothesis that structural heterogeneity promotes diversity by compartmentalization and highlighting the importance of microhabitats in the assessment of biodiversity. Expand
Diversity of free-living marine nematodes (Enoplida) from Baja California assessed by integrative taxonomy
TLDR
The results underline the relevance of adopting an integrative approach encompassing morphological and molecular analyses to improve the assessment of marine nematode diversity and advance their taxonomy. Expand
