Host Affinity of Nematode Species of the Genus Aphelenchoides

  title={Host Affinity of Nematode Species of the Genus Aphelenchoides},
  author={Y. S. Rathor and S. N. Tiwari},
Aphelenchoides are commonly known as foliar nematodes. Information on host diversity and host taxonomic affiliation revealed that out of 23 nematode species11were monophagous, and of these 70% species preferred dicotyledons. All the monophagous species had GAI value of 1.000. Polyphagous species were species specific. However, generalized picture revealed that 69.71, 14.86 and 15.43% plant species were accepted as host from dicotyledons, monocotyledons and others (non-angiosperms), respectively…

The reniformis nematodes of the genus Rotylenchulus are sedentary semi-endoparasites of numerous crops capable of feeding from very primitive Magnoliids to plants of advanced category and maximum affinity was observed by their association with plants from families Poaceae and so on.


Phylogenetic Relationships of Host Plants of Whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) Research Article
Six phylogenetic lineages showed prominence in dicotyledons and two in monocotyles, making B. tabaci undoubtedly a polyphagous pest and truly said world’s most dangerous insect pest.
Relationship of Different Species of Heterodera with Taxonomic Grouping of Host Plants
Heteroderid groups (clades) revealed that Avenae and Sacchari groups intimately affiliated with monocots and perhaps co-evolved with them and Races of some species of Heterodera showed close association with certain genera.
Relationship of Root-knot Nematode, Meloidogyne incognita with Taxonomic Groupings of Host Plants
Meloidogyne incognita is a polyphagous nematode and prefers to feedmore on dicotyledonous plants as compared to monocots, and greater preference was reflected towards herbaceae (plants derived from herbaceous stock) than lignosae (plant derived from woody stock).
Affinity in the Species of Paratylenchus (Tylenchida: Paratylenchidae)
Host taxonomic affinity of 28 species of Paratylechus was examined and it was observed that, in general, this nematode tend to share 65.79% host species from dicotyledons, 31.95% mocotyledons and
Small subunit ribosomal DNA-based phylogenetic analysis of foliar nematodes (Aphelenchoides spp.) and their quantitative detection in complex DNA backgrounds.
A phylum-wide SSU rDNA framework was used to identify species-specific DNA motifs and polymerase chain reaction primers were developed with high, identical annealing temperatures, which can be used for the rapid screening of plant material and soil for the presence of one or multiple foliar nematode species.
Morphological and molecular characterisation of Aphelenchoides besseyi and A. fujianensis (Nematoda: Aphelenchoididae) from rice and forage grass seeds in Brazil
This study reports the presence of a morphologically similar species to A. besseyi associated with seeds of grasses, but genetically distinct based on three genomic regions, which the results strongly suggest to be A. fujianensis, this being a new geographical record for Brazil.
Aphelenchida, Longidoridae and Trichodoridae: their systematics and bionomics.
This book aims to provide a practical, working guide to the taxa of the Aphelenchida, Longidoridae and Trichodoridae, in such a form as to facilitate usage by both specialist taxonomists and general nematologists.
Infection of Narcissus Roots by Aphelenchoides subtenuis.
This study confirmed that Aphelenchoides subtenuis is the main cause of the basal plate disease of Narcissus, and reported the first report of an Aphelinchoides species as a root pathogen.
