Phylogenetic Relationships and Genetic Variation in Longidorus and Xiphinema Species (Nematoda: Longidoridae) Using ITS1 Sequences of Nuclear Ribosomal DNA.
Genetic analyses using DNA sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA ITS1 were conducted to determine the extent of genetic variation within and among Longidorus and Xiphinema species. DNA sequences were
Oscheius carolinensis n. sp. (Nematoda: Rhabditidae), a potential entomopathogenic nematode from vermicompost
Preliminary tests revealed that this nematode is capable of infecting at least two other insect species under laboratory conditions and therefore has potential as a biological control agent.
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.
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.
Phylogeography of Coptotermes gestroi and Coptotermes formosanus (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) in Taiwan
It is found that most Taiwanese C. formosanus populations were closely related to Japanese and some Chinese populations and that Taiwan C. gestroi populations were most closelyrelated to those from the Philippines and Hawaii rather than populations from Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.
First Report of Meloidogyne enterolobii on Cotton and Soybean in North Carolina, United States.
Of particular concern is its ability to develop on crop genotypes carrying root-knot-nematode resistance genes (Mi-1, Mh, Mir1, N, Tabasco, and Rk) in tobacco, tomato, soybean, potato, cowpea, sweet potato, and cotton.
Identification of Chilean Reticulitermes (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) Inferred from Three Mitochondrial Gene DNA Sequences and Soldier Morphology
Abstract Results of Bayesian, maximum parsimony (MP), and neighbor joining (NJ) analysis of mitochondrial COII, 16S, and 12S gene DNA sequences and soldier morphology identified Chilean samples of a
Description of Hemicaloosia graminis n. sp. (Nematoda: Caloosiidae) Associated with Turfgrasses in North and South Carolina, USA.
A new nematode species was discovered during a diversity survey of plant-parasitic nematodes on turfgrass conducted in North and South Carolina in 2010 and 2011 and was easily differentiated from other species based on near-full-length small subunit rRNA gene (SSU) and ITS1 sequences.
