Life cycle and mating behavior of Helicotylenchus multicinctus (Nematoda: Hoplolaimidae) on excised Musa cavendishii roots

  title={Life cycle and mating behavior of Helicotylenchus multicinctus (Nematoda: Hoplolaimidae) on excised Musa cavendishii roots},
  author={Mehmet Karakaş},
The life cycle and mating behavior of Helicotylenchus multicinctus (Nematoda: Hoplolaimidae) were observed in vitro on excised roots of Musa cavendishii in gnotobiotic culture. [...] Key Method Eggs hatched into juveniles whose appearance and structure were similar to those of the adults. Juveniles grew in size and each juvenile stage was terminated by a molt. H. multicinctus had four juvenile stages. The first molt occurred outside the egg shortly after hatching. After the final molt the juveniles…Expand

An integrative approach to the study of Helicotylenchus (Nematoda: Hoplolaimidae) Colombian and Brazilian populations associated with Musa crops
Four species of Helicotylenchus were identified based on morphological and morphometric data and phylogenetic analysis confirmed the presence of these species associated with Musa spp. Expand
Belowground Defence Strategies Against Migratory Nematodes
Belowground defence, in the form of enhanced resistance to migratory parasites, may also be achieved by transgenic expression of modified cysteine protease inhibitors (cystatins), anti-root invasion peptides and host-induced gene silencing (RNAi) strategies, demonstrating that migratory nematodes are amenable to control by these technologies.

Plant-parasitic nematodes as invasive species: characteristics,uncertainty and biosecurity implications
The characteristics of plant-parasitic nematodes were compared with those of invasive species generally, using the propagule pressure, abiotic and biotic factors (PAB) framework to find most PPN had many of the characteristics of invasivespecies and hence have the potential to become invasive.

Belowground Defence Strategies in Plants
This book aims to bring together current knowledge on the belowground interactions of plant roots with both detrimental and beneficial microbes to form the basis for more environmentally friendly plant disease management of soil-borne pathogens and pests. Expand

In Vitro Culture and Feeding Behavior of Belonolaimus longicaudatus on Excised Zea mays Roots.
A greenhouse population of the sting nematode, Belonolaimus longicaudatus, obtained from an infested golf course in California's Coachella Valley, was surface-decontaminated and cuhured on excised roots of Zea mays supported by Gamborg's B5 medium, and feeding seemed to be necessary before egg deposition or molting occurred.

Life Cycle of Heterodera zeae Koshy, Swarup, and Sethi on Zea mays L. Axenic Root Explants.
The occurrence of males was rare suggesting that reproduction in H. zeae is parthenogenetic, and the life cycle was determined from light anti scanning electron microscopic observations of the root explants grown in the dark at 29.5 +/- .5 C under gnotobiotic conditions. Expand

Nematological Reviews: Helicotylenchus multicinctus on Bananas: An International Problem
The spiral nematode, Helicotylenchus multicinctus (C Cobb) Golden, is widely distributed on bananas and plantains (Musa spp.) throughout the world, but losses and damage are most serious in locations where Radopholus similis (Cobb) Thorne is absent, particularly in subtropical areas considered suboptimal for banana production.

The Histological Changes in Banana Roots Caused By Radopholus Similis and Helicotylenchus Multicinctus
It is concluded that R. similis is the primary pathogen of root rot and may create in the cortex a food base for weak, unspecialised fungal parasites and thereby increase the invasive potential of these fungi. Expand
