  author={N. De and A. Santos and M. Susana},
Meloidogyne ardenensis n. sp. is described from Vinca minor and other woodland plants in England. It differs from other described species in the perineal pattern, the forward position of the excretory pore and the fairly long stylet of the female; in the truncate cone-shaped head with three or four annules behind the head cap in the male; and in having the excretory pore anterior to the hemizonid in the larva. 
The present position in the systematics of Meloidogyne
The morphological and physiological variability in the commonest species is so great as to suggest that they may be species complexes or that evolution may be proceeding at an observable rate, which results in some uncertainty in the systematics. Expand

Morphological and molecular characteristics of a new species of Pasteuria parasitic on Meloidogyne ardenensis.
A species of the hyper-parasitic bacterium Pasteuria isolated from the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne ardenensis infecting the roots of ash was isolated and shown to be a new species of Pasteuria called P. hartismeri. Expand
Biology of Meloidogyne platani Hirschmann Parasitic on Sycamore, Platanus occidentalis.
A significant negative correlation was shown to exist between fresh shoot and root weights and inoculum density and pathogenicity studies, and of the herbacious plants tested, tobacco was heavily galled, tomato and watermelon moderately galled; and pepper only slightly galled. Expand
3 Taxonomy , Identification and Principal Species
‘On closer examination the root was found to be covered with excrescences varying from the size of a small pin’s head to that of a little Bean or Nutmeg.’ This observation, from one of the firstExpand
