Cover for Plant parasitic nematodes in subtropical and tropical agriculture.

This new edition covers the major economically important crops of the subtropics and tropics and their main nematode parasites, concentrating on those nematode species that have been shown to cause yield loss. The book has been expanded to include a new chapter on nematode ecology, demonstrating...

Cover for Nematode ecology and soil health.

This chapter describes the abiotic and biotic components of soil ecosystem structure, and the soil environment as a habitat for organisms. It also discusses the role of nematodes as bioindicators (trophic levels and functional guilds) and as indicators of soil health in agroecosystems. It also...

Cover for Methods for extraction, processing and detection of plant and soil nematodes.

Diagnosis of nematode damage requires methods for their extraction, handling and detection. The methods take advantage of the size, density and motility of the nematodes to separate them from plant tissue and soil particles by means of sieving, centrifugation and filtration. Different methods allow ...

Cover for Targeting nematode genes by RNA silencing.

Despite prominent differences in lifestyles of obligate parasitic and free-living nematodes, the intensive research in characterizing genes and proteins of Caenorhabditis elegans using RNA silencing has inspired research and technological applications for parasitic nematodes. This is exemplified in ...

Cover for The lessons that <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Caenorhabditis elegans</i> has taught us about the mechanism of action of crystal proteins.

Caenorhabditis elegans is susceptible to three domain crystal proteins similar to those that intoxicate insects. Investigations of this organism have several important strengths, for example, ease of forward genetic screens, range of molecular genetic tools available and ease of carrying out RNAi...

Cover for Nematophagous bacteria: virulence mechanisms.

This chapter focuses on bacteria pathogenic to plant parasitic nematodes. The methods required to study the pathogenicity and virulence in bacteria-nematode relationships are highlighted. Model free-living nematodes, such as Caenorhabditis elegans and Panagrellus redivivus are also discussed.

Cover for Biological control as a component of integrated nematode management: the way forward.

Biological control is not just about developing biopesticides targeted at specific plant-parasitic nematodes; it also involves improving soil and crop management practices to the point where the suppressive services provided by the soil biological community begin to operate effectively, as they do...
