An ecological study of the nematodes of the ricefields of Senegal

Cahiers ORSTOM, Biologie 11(3): 179-191

An ecological study of the nematodes of the ricefields of Senegal

Observations in the field and laboratory experiments showed that only Hirschmaniella spp. survive prolonged flooding. Tylenchorhynchus mashhoodi populations grow rapidly in wet, aerated soil. H.oryzae populations are larger in the Senegal Delta soil than in the soil of Casamance, whereas those of H. spinicaudata are similar in the two areas. H.oryzae survives the dry season in the Delta in quiescent form.
