Entomopathogenic nematode food webs in an ancient, mining pollution gradient in Spain.
TLDR
This study suggests that EPNs have adapted to polluted habitats that might support arthropod hosts, and revealed these taxa as especially well suited bio-indicators of soil mining pollution.
Research article GROWTH AND SPORULATION OF NEMATOPHAGUS FUNGUS NEMATOCTONUS ROBUSTUS ON DIFFERENT MEDIA AT DIFFERENT TEMPERATURES
TLDR
It is evident from results showing the effect of temperature on the biology of N.robustus that 20 0 C was most optimum temperature for both growth and sporulation.
Research article MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERIZATION AND MASS PRODUCTION OF NEMATOPHAGOUS FUNGUS NEMATOCTONUS ROBUSTUS
TLDR
This isolate of Nematoctonus robustus is characterized by hyaline mycelium, dikaryotic in nature containing genetically two different nuclei in each cell, having distinct clamp connection, which has better colonizing ability on natural solid substrates like wheat straw and rice straw.
STUDIES ON THE BIOLOGY AND TRAPPING ABILITY OF NEMATOCTONUSROBUSTUS
INTRODUCTION Nematodes are microscopic multicellular roundworm that inhabit marine, freshwater and terrestrial environment. Some of them are beneficial soil microorganisms that play an important role
Crop Improvement Under Adverse Conditions
No wonder you activities are, reading will be always needed. It is not only to fulfil the duties that you need to finish in deadline time. Reading will encourage your mind and thoughts. Of course,
Role of Nematode-Trapping Fungi for Crop Improvement under Adverse Conditions
TLDR
Nematode-trapping fungi show very good potential for biological control of plant parasitic nematodes due to formation of trapping structures and its mycoparasitic behavior to control some soil-borne diseases and as root endophytes which show resistance against biotic stresses caused by phytonematodes.
The history, fungal biodiversity, conservation, and future perspectives for mycology in Egypt
TLDR
Values of relative species richness of different systematic and ecological groups in Egypt compared to values of the same groups worldwide, show that knowledge of Egyptian fungi is fragmentary, especially for certain systematic and ecology groups such as Agaricales, Glomeromycota, and lichenized, nematode-trapping, entomopathogenic, marine, aquatic and coprophilous fungi, and also yeasts.
Microbial control of plant-parasitic nematodes: a five-party interaction
TLDR
This review presents progress made in the field of microbial antagonists of plant-parasitic nematodes, including nematophagous fungi, endophytic fungi, actinomycetes and bacteria.
