Ecology and pathogenicity of the nematode Paratylenchus pernoxius (Nemata: Tylenchulidae) from Senegal, West Africa



Ecology and pathogenicity of the nematode Paratylenchus pernoxius (Nemata: Tylenchulidae) from Senegal, West Africa



Afro Asian Journal of Nematology 4(1): 7-10



P. pernoxius has been found in clay soil in Senegal, West Africa. Laboratory studies showed that this species needs high soil temperatures (32-36 degrees C) and soil moisture (7-11% water content) for reproduction. Millet and sorghum were good hosts, cowpea was a poor host whereas groundnut was a nonhost. The nematode appeared to be able to enter anhydrobiosis during the dry season with survival rates varying from 16 to 49%.
