Summary Roots of Solanum lycopersicum L. were collected in growing season of year 2015, on the island of Santiago in Cape Verde. Morphological, morphometric and molecular (18S rDNA and 28S rDNA) studies revealed the presence of Pratylenchus brachyurus and P. delattrei in root systems and root zones of tomato plants. To our knowledge, this is the first record of the occurrence of these nematode species in Cape Verde.

This is the first report of PPNs community in Brazilian grapevine areas with the Decline disease and the first record of M. luci associated with grapevine in Brazil.
S0022149X21000754jra 1..9
The pathogenicity of the root-lesion nematode SC isolate on tomato was assessed, showing that tomato was a suitable host for P. scribneri and the Bayesian tree inferred showed that this isolate formed a highly supported clade with other P.scribneri isolates.
A COI DNA barcoding survey of Pratylenchus species in the Great Plains Region of North America
Pratylenchus species are among the most common plant parasitic nematodes in the Great Plains Region of North America. Our goal was to survey Pratylenchus species diversity across the Great Plains
Short Communication: Updated tabular key and improved browser-based interactive key to species of Pratylenchus Filipjev (Nematoda: Pratylenchidae)
A prototype of a cross-platform, browser-based computer-assisted identification key for species of Pratylenchus has been developed, based on the pre-existing tabular key, with updates and improvements described to enhance the performance of the prototype key.
The Effect of Soil Type and Ecosystems on the Soil Nematode and Microbial Communities
Both the biological indicators and basic soil properties indicated that the natural forest with a Chernozem soil was the best habitat from an ecological point of view, and this ecosystem is the most appropriate for ecological studies.


Pratylenchus brachyurus (Nematoda: Pratylenchidae) in Guariroba in the state of Goiás, Brazil
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first record of P. brachyurus parasitizing guariroba elsewhere (new host) and Morphological, morphometric and molecular (ITS1 sequences) approaches allowed us to identify the infecting nematode as Pratylenchus Brachyurus.
Pratylenchus (Nematoda: Pratylenchidae): Diagnosis, Biology, Pathogenicity and Management
Root-lesion nematodes of the genus Pratylenchus are recognized worldwide as one of the major constraints of crop of primary economic importance including vegetables, and many small and fruit trees.
Nematodes associated with pineapples in Uganda.
In surveys of pineapple fields at Kawanda Research Station and in those of the Masaka Cooperative Union at Masaka, Uganda, 12 genera of plant parasitic nematodes were found.

Abstract. This article provides morphological and molecular characteristics of Punctodera stonei Brzeski, 1998. Comparison of partial sequences of 18S and 28S rDNA genes from P. stonei sampled in
Mixed populations of 32 economically important plant-parasitic nematode species belonging to 17 genera were identified, with fifteen identified to species.
Plant parasitic nematode communities in rubber nurseries and plantations in Tripura
A linear increase in the index of diversity (H) with rise in the age of plantations up to certain age group (5 to 15 year) was observed, and Helicotylenchus spp.
Nematodes Parasitic On Forest Trees
Seedlings of nine pine species native to the Southeast were grown in 20-cm pots in the greenhouse and inoculated with eight species of endoparasitic nematodes, indicating a positive host-parasite relationship for a given nematode-pine combination.
Plant-parasitic nematodes associated with walnut in the Sanandej region of West Iran
In the present study, Pratylenchus delattrei, Trophurus lomus, Paratylenus similis, Geocenamus stegus, Helicotylenchu crassatus, Scutellonema brachyurus and Meloidogyne incognita were reported as new species associated with walnut in Iran.
Tylenchida: parasites of plants and insects.
This expanded edition of the tylenchida is a reference work on the important group of nematodes and should be a resource for plant nematologists and plant pathologists.
Endoparasitic nematodes in cropping soils of Western Australia
The findings indicate that potentially damaging Pratylenchus numbers occur in a significant proportion of fields and highlight the need to develop and implement strategies to lower population densities.
