Several species of trichodorid nematodes cause economically important disease on plants. Trichodorus comprises most of the trichodorid species. Trichodorus golestanensis n. sp. is described from a forest park in northern Iran. The new species belongs to the T. lusitanicus morpho-species group and is characterized in male by three ventromedian cervical(More)
The influence of ten initial population levels (0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4, 0.8, 1.6, 3.2, 6.4, 12.8 and 25.6 second stage juveniles/cm3 soil) of Meloidogyne incognita and M. javanica on olive cultivar Zard growth was studied in two pot trials. Ten month old self-rooted olive cuttings were individually transplanted into 2 000 cm3 pot and inoculated with the defined(More)
During a survey of plant-parasitic nematodes in fruit tree nurseries in Iran, a species of the genus Paratrichodorus from the family Trichodoridae was found in the rhizosphere of apricot seedlings in Shahrood, central Iran, then subsequently in Karaj orchards. Morphological and morphometric characters of the specimens were in agreement with P. teres. The(More)
The corn cyst nematode, Heterodera zeae was found in soil sample collected from five wheat fields with a history of corn cultivation in Nangharhar province, Afghanistan, during May–June 2009. Morphological and morphometric characters of cysts and second stage juveniles were in agreement with those described for this species in other countries. Comparison of(More)
