Histological Observations of Rotylenchulus reniformis on Gossypium longicalyx and Interspecific Cotton Hybrids.


Observations on the development of reniform nematode (Rotylenchulus reniformis) on roots of Gossypium longicalyx, G. hirsutum, and two interspecific hybrids derived from them were made by light microscopy. Gossypium longicalyx is reported to be immune to reniform nematode, but the mechanism(s) for resistance are unknown. Penetration of G. longicalyx roots… (More)
