New nematode is hermaphrodite: One of the smallest known earthworms found in Jaén

Science Daily - Oct 13, 2016
Around nine kilometres south of the city of Jaén (Spain), Spanish scientists have found a new species of nematode in the compost at a vegetable garden. The specimens found are extremely small, with adults measuring 0.2 mm in length. Moreover, there are ...

New method provides a tool to develop nematode-resistant soybean varieties

Science Daily - Oct 7, 2016
The new method has been tested in greenhouse trials to show that the more copies of the gene, the greater the resistance to soybean cyst nematode. Breeders can use this method to develop new soybean varieties with greater and more reliable resistance.

Nematode resistance key in variety trials

Southwest Farm Press - Oct 10, 2016
Nematode-resistant varieties with Xtend technology should be available by 2018. “They are coming through our breeding program,” says Deltapine Cotton Breeder Darren Jones. “We identified the genetic marker for root knot nematode resistance in our ...

Biological Control of Plant-Parasitic Nematodes: Soil Ecosystem Management in Sustainable Agriculture

by: Graham R. Stirling
Plant-parasitic nematodes are one of multiple causes of soil-related sub-optimal crop performance. This book integrates soil health and sustainable agriculture with nematode ecology and suppressive services provided by the soil food web to provide holistic solutions. Biological control is an important component of all nematode management programs, and with a particular focus on integrated soil biology management, this book describes tools available to farmers to enhance the activity of natural enemies, and utilize soil biological processes to reduce losses from nematodes.

The Mechanistic Benefits of Microbial Symbionts

This volume summarizes recent advances in our understanding of the mechanisms that produce successful symbiotic partnerships involving microorganisms. It begins with a basic introduction to the nature of and mechanistic benefits derived from symbiotic associations. Taking that background knowledge as the starting point, the next sections include chapters that examine representative examples of coevolutionary associations that have developed between species of microbes, as well as associations between microbes and plants.

Nematode Vectors of Plant Viruses

by: CABI
Viruses transmitted by nematodes are responsible for many economically important diseases of crops. Thus, when in the late 1950s, this mode of disease propagation was demonstrated by proof of the transmission of grapevine fanleaf disease by Xiphenema index. It marked the start of a significant and fruitful period of research. After the initial enthusiasm associated with the discovery of new vectors and new viruses, there followed a spell of consolidation in which researchers sought the answers to intriguing questions about the nature of the association between virus and vector, as well as more mundane, but equally compelling questions about life-cycles, geographical distribution and the taxonomy of groups of vector species.
