Radopholus similis is one of the world’s ten most economically important plant-parasitic nematodes. It is especially a problem in banana cultivation, where the nematodes’ feeding reduces yields and causes toppling disease. It has been suggested that the genus Radopholus Thorne, 1949 might have an Australian origin, but the native range of R. similis (Cobb, 1893) is not well known. Here we undertake a phylogeographical study of samples of R. similis from banana plantations down the eastern… 
Morphological and molecular diversity of Radopholus on coffee in Vietnam and description of R. daklakensis sp. n. from Robusta coffee
Phylogenetic analysis of Radopholus species using ITS-rDNA sequences or sequences from the D2-D3 expansion region of the 28S rRNA gene also confirm R. daklakensis sp.
Past and present of the nematode Radopholus similis (Cobb) Thorne with emphasis on Musa: a review
The history of its discovery and its name, new approaches to its taxonomy and its genome, and the process of dissemination and pathogenic variability are examined, as well as the evolution of the control measures in banana.
Molecular approaches to diagnostics for plant parasitic nematodes of biosecurity concern
An ITS-based PCR approach was used to identify different species of RLNs and study sequence differences within and between different species and populations, and it is suggested that H. schachtii can be use as a model for detecting future incursions of H. glycines.


Phylogenetic Analysis of Geographically Diverse Radopholus similis via rDNA Sequence Reveals a Monomorphic Motif.
The data presented herein support the concept that R. similis is comprised of two pathotypes-one that parasitizes citrus and one that does not, and substantiates previous observations that the R. Similis genome is highly conserved across geographic regions.
Radopholus musicola n. sp., a new pathogenic species from Australia (Nematoda: Pratylenchidae)
The new species is distinguished from other species by female lateral lines with deep folds on the outer edge and by males with a uniquely long thin tail having a pointed terminus.
Heterorhabditis baujardi sp. n. (Rhabditida: Heterorhabditidae) from Vietnam and morphometric data for H. indica populations
Three isolates collected in forests in Backan, Ninhbinh and Kontum provinces, Vietnam are described as a new species Heterorhabditis baujardi sp.
Radopholus duriophilus sp. n. (Nematoda: Pratylenchidae) from Western Highland of Vietnam
A new species of the genus Radopholus associated with durian (Durio zibetinus M.) in the Western Highland of Vietnam is described as Radopholus duriophilus sp. n. The new species is close to R.
Population dynamics and economic threshold of the nematodes Radopholus similis and Pratylenchus goodeyi on banana in Australia
To help banana growers to decide when to apply nematicide, economic thresholds were determined for tropical north Queensland, subtropical south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales,
Beyond chemical dependency for managing plant-parasitic nematodes: examples from the banana, pineapple and vegetable industries of tropical and subtropical Australia
Various components of current integrated pest management programs, including crop rotation, nematode monitoring, clean planting material, organic amendments, farming systems to enhance biological suppression of nematodes and judicious use of nematicides are discussed.

Preliminary analysis of the literature on the distribution of wild Musa species using MGIS and DIVA-GIS
The purpose of this work was to initiate a bibliography on wild Musa species and analyse the information (new species, distribution, ecogeographic data, etc.) related to them for integration into the
