Pathogenic nematodes of cereal crops in south-west Victoria, Australia
The results showed that cereal cyst nematode was of minor importance to cereal crops in this region and root lesion nematodes may become increasingly important with the increased intensification of cropping within the region.
The root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) were the most frequent in roots and soil and Helicotylenchus multicinctus and Rotylenchulus reniformis was the second most frequent group.
Description of Pratylenchus hispaniensis n. sp. from Spain and considerations on the phylogenetic relationship among selected genera in the family Pratylenchidae
A new amphimictic species, Pratylenchus hispaniensis n. sp., parasitising the roots of gum cistus in Andujar (Jaen), southern Spain, is described. The new species is characterised by the presence of
Distribution and diversity of root-lesion nematodes (Pratylenchus spp.) associated with Ammophila arenaria in coastal dunes of Western Europe
The distribution and diversity of Pratylenchus species associated with Ammophila arenaria was investigated in its natural range of distribution and the D2D3 rDNA region revealed large interspecific and low intraspecific variation, supporting the morphological identification.
Identification of Pratylenchus thornei, the cereal and legume root-lesion nematode, based on SCAR-PCR and satellite DNA
The described SCAR-PCR-based assay has the potential to be optimized for routine practical diagnostic tests and the use of a species-specific satellite DNA sequence to distinguish P. thornei from other Pratylenchus spp.
Impact of nematodes on grapevine growth and productivity: current knowledge and future directions, with special reference to Australian viticulture
Special attention is paid to improving nematode resistance in rootstocks or even own‐rooted Vitis vinifera cultivars by conventional breeding and by genetic engineering, and conceptual tools plus information for long term control of nematodes in vineyards are provided.
Phylogenetic analysis of nematodes of the genus Pratylenchus using nuclear 26S rDNA.
It is clear that species of Pratylenchus are a paraphyletic assemblage, and the outgroup taxon H. belli shares a common ancestor with the clade that includes P. vulnus and P. crenatus while N. aberrans and R. similis share acommon ancestor with 5 other species included in this study.
Nematodes associated with andean papaya (Carica pubescens L.) in Sandia, Puno, Peru
The morphological identification of the genera of nematodes associated with the cultivation of Andean papaya, in Sandia district, Puno, Perú, may allow the design of an integrated nematode management plan in Andean Papaya crops.
Pathogenicity of migratory endoparasitic nematodes on coffee seedlings (Coffea arabica cv. K7) in Australia
This is the first report of nematode species capable of damaging coffee in Australia and the results demonstrate that nematodes pose a potential threat to coffee production.
Phytoparasitic nematodes of organic vegetables in the Argan Biosphere of Souss-Massa (Southern Morocco)
A combination of biological treatments and appropriate agroecological practices restricting important economic PPN growth and enhancing soil quality are required to achieve sustainable management in the area.
