ABSTRACT The burrowing nematode Radopholus similis is one of the most damaging pathogens on banana plantations. The role of phenolics in plant defense responses to the nematode was histochemically and ultrastructurally investigated in susceptible and partially resistant cultivars. Histochemical observations of healthy roots revealed that high levels of lignin, flavonoids, dopamine, cafeic esters, and ferulic acids were associated with a very low rate of nematode root penetration in the… CONTINUE READING
