Anguina pacificae is distributed along a narrow strip on the Pacific coast of Northern California where it forms galls on the shoots of Poa annua and causes significant damage to golf course greens. Methods were developed for the continuous propagation of A. pacificae on P. annua in growth chambers, and they were used to examine the life cycle and host-parasite relationships of the nematode. At a mean temperature of 20 degrees C (22 degrees C day/18 degrees C night) the life cycle was completed… Expand
Seasonal population dynamics of the plant-parasitic nematode, Anguina pacificae on golf course putting greens in California.
The data suggest that the peak of infective juveniles that are released from the galls and search for a new host occurs during late spring and midsummer, and a positive correlation was found between gall size and the nematode population within it. Expand
A First Report of Anguina pacificae in Ireland.
This study presents the first confirmed case of an A. pacificae infestation outside of North America, where the nematode's distribution is further restricted to a relatively limited coastal region. Expand
Description of a new species of seed-gall nematode, Anguina obesa n. sp. (Nematoda: Anguinidae) from northern Iran, and its phylogenetic relations with other species and genera
Anguina obesa n. sp., a new species of the genus, causing small seed galls inside the ovaries of foxtail weed plants (Alopecurus mysuroides Huds.) is described and illustrated based on itsExpand
First Report of Matricidal Hatching in Bursaphelenchus xylophilus.
Evidence of matricidal hatching was observed in the pinewood nematode B. xylophilus isolated in Spain under laboratory conditions, the first described case of this phenomenon in this species. Expand
Real-Time PCR for Detection and Identification of Anguina funesta, A. agrostis, A. tritici, and A. pacificae.
New species-specific primers and TaqMan probes for real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) identification of A. funesta, A. tritici, and A. pacificae are described, which should facilitate fast and accurate identification of Anguina spp. Expand
Survival of parasitic nematodes outside the host.
The ability of some species of nematode to survive desiccation for periods considerably in excess of the duration of the normal life cycle has been studied in detail, in part because in species with a direct life cyele this attribute is key to effective dispersion of Nematodes. Expand
Mutualistic nematode-bacteria complexes associated with insects
The life cycles of PWN and EPN show traits of the primary detrital trophism and bacteria of both mutualistic associations produce siderophores and antibiotics that prevent reproduction of other pathogenic and putrefactive microorganisms. Expand
Correction to: Description of a new species of seed-gall nematode, Anguina obesa n. sp. (Nematoda: Anguinidae) from northern Iran, and its phylogenetic relations with other species and genera
In the original version of this article, the name of host plant Alopecurus myosuroides was incorrectly written as Alopecurus mysuroides.
Plant Parasitic Nematodes in California Agriculture
In this chapter, a developmental account of Nematode problems associated with major crops, nematode biology and regional distribution, and past to present management practices including sustainable strategies are discussed for certain main, economically important plant parasitic nematodes species.

A New Gall-Forming Species of Anguina Scopoli, 1777 (Nemata: Anguinidae) on Bluegrass, Poa annua L., from the Coast of California.
Anguina pacificae n. sp. is described and illustrated from stem galls on bluegrass, Poa annua L., from golf courses along coastal California. The females are characterized by constrictions in theExpand

Nematodes, along with abundant eggs, were found inside the lesions, with the highest numbers in necrotic areas, and there was no evidence of nematodes having fed on the endodermis or penetrat ing the stele. Expand
Endotokia matricida in hermaphrodites of Heterorhabditis spp. and the effect of the food supply
It is demonstrated that low food supply significantly promotes the beginning of endotokia matricida but has no influence on the time scale of the process. Expand
Multinucleate transfer cells induced in coleus roots by the root-knot nematode,Meloidogyne arenaria
The observations support the hypothesis that wall protuberances form as a result of selective solute flow across the plasmalemma, and indicate that giant cells are multinucleate transfer cells. Expand
“Transfer cells” Plant cells with wall ingrowths, specialized in relation to short distance transport of solutes—Their occurrence, structure, and development
Transfer cells are apparently restricted to situations where adverse surface area—volume relationships exist between donor and receptor compartments of the transport pathway and/or where the transported solutes are accompanied by a minimal flow of solvent. Expand
