segmenting worms that live in different
environment and feed roots. Nematodes can
stunt the growth of the plants, and transmit
pathogens as a virus, bacteria or fungy.
Taxonomy of plant parasitic nematodes is rather complicated, many of
nematologists described thousands of nematodes species during last hundred
years. At the present time Siddigi 1986 is acceptable, with small number of
correction especially for small groups of plant parasitic nematodes.
Plant nematodes have both common and scientific names, some of
economical importance, by common name, are: Root-knot, Sting, Stubby-root,
Reniform, Lance, Ring, Lesion, Burrowing, Citrus, Spiral, and Cyst
Most of the Plant Parasitic Nematodes we can decide into two classes and
three orders. Most of plant parasitic nematode species belong to order
Tylenchida. Virus vector nematodes are situated in orders Dorylaimida and
Order 1
Order 2
Order 3
Basic morphology and anatomy
The nematode body is cover by cuticle which contain several layers depend
on stage. The cuticle is the flexible coating around the nematode [its skin],
which protects the nematode from physical and chemical dangers. The most
noticeable feature of the cuticle is the system of grooves across the body from
head to tail. As nematodes grow they usually shed their cuticle four times.
The stylet is a hard, sharp spear used for feeding. Muscles move the stylet
in and out and allow the nematode to puncture plant cells. Stylet (spear)
penetrate cells inject coctail of enzymes and withdraw the contents of the
cell. Form of the stylet is the important diagnostic criterion.
The esophagus is a tube where food moves from the
head to the intestine/stomach. Glands empty their
contents into the esophagus to help digestion.
The median bulb is a circular muscle which pumps
food through the esophagus. In the center of the
median bulb is a valve which only allows contents to
move from the stylet to the intestine.
The largest glands in nematodes are the esophageal
glands. These glands are made of large cells with large
nuclei and are thought to release substances which
help with digestion and feeding.
Nematode digestive systems are
made of a tube of a single layer of
cells - the intestine. Food enters the
intestine from the esophagus,
nutrients are absorbed, and wastes
are released through the anus.
Excretory System
Simple tubular system - in one or both lateral hypodermal chords in
Secernentea; embedded between the three cell bodies in hypodermal chord.
Individual excretory cells or tubular system in Adenophorea.
Excretory pore (external opening of tubular excretory systems) usually visible
due to cuticular lining - ventral, position is diagnostic.
Most nematode species produce males and females, but some species only
produce females. The ovary is where germ cells give rise to eggs. Fertilization,
by the sperm, takes place in the uterus and eggs are released through the
vagina. Even though the size of nematodes varies greatly, most nematode eggs
are about the same size and shape.
Male nematodes produce sperm in the testes which are shaped similar to the female
ovary. Sperm accumulate in the seminal vesicle and exit through the anus. During
mating rigid spicules insert into the vagina and form a passageway for the sperm.
Some males have thin cuticle extensions on both sides of the anus called bursae
Spiule form is the most important diagnostic criterion.
Neural system
The nerve ring is the largest group of nerve cells in nematodes. Six bundles of nerve cells
extend from the nerve ring to sensory receptors in the nematode head. Other nerve cells
extend from the nerve ring towards the tail. In Plant parasitic group of nematodes s
usually visible just nerval ring.
Nematodes have a variety of sensilla:
(i) Amphids
open on or below lips (position of opening is diagnostic).
pouch with sensory neuron.
opening is a pore, slit, spiral, etc.
seem to contain mucoid material.
probably function a chemoreceptor's.
(ii) Phasmids
posterior location in lateral field - (chemoreceptors).
occur in Secernentea but not Adenophorea.
scutella are enlarged phasmids in some genera of
Tylenchida (e.g., Scutellonema).
(iii) Other Sensilla
have a fairly consistent structure; they include:
elongate setae
sensory pegs
shallow pits
deeper pits (e.g., amphids)
cephalic papillae - on lips - (tactile function?)
cephalic setae - more elongate
somatic setae - rare in Secernentea, but occur in
deirids - in lateral field near nerve ring
Nematodes may be grouped by
feeding habit as:
•Endoparasitic– entire body
inside the root
•Ectoparasitic– entire body
outside the root
•Semi-endoparasitic- part of
body inside root
By movement when feeding, they
are called:
•Sedentary – mostly immobile
during their life
•Migratory – mobile for all their
Frequent life cycle (example on Heteroderidae family)

Plant protection against to nematodes
•Observance of the rules of Quarantine status
•Clean tools and equipment when changing areas or fields
•Crop rotation
•Chemical treatments nematicides
•Nematode-free (certified) seeds and planting material
•Tolerant or resistant cultivars (GMO?)
•Soil solarization
•Biological control
•Plant extracts application
•Ozone irrigation
The interactions of many soil organisms results in biological buffering or
regulation of the nematode population through the mechanisms of Exploitation,
Competition, and Antibiosis. This mechanisms can be use for nematode

D. dipsaci occurs locally in most temperate areas of the world (Europe and the Mediterranean
region, North and South America, northern and southern Africa, Asia and Oceania) but it does not
seem able to establish itself in tropical regions except at higher altitudes that have a temperate
climate. In most countries regulatory measures (e.g. certification schemes) are applied to
minimize further spread of D. dipsaci.

D. dipsaci is a migratory endoparasite that feeds upon parenchymatous tissue in stems
and bulbs, causing the breakdown of the middle lamellae of cell walls. Feeding often
causes swellings and distortion of aerial plant parts (stems, leaves, flowers) and necrosis
or rotting of stem bases, bulbs, tubers and rhizomes. During cold storage of bulbs and
tubers, D. dipsaci and rotting may continue to develop.
In onion plants at 15°C, the life-cycle takes about 20 days. Females lay 200 to 500 eggs
each. Fourth-stage juveniles tend to aggregate on or just below the surface of heavily
infested tissue to form clumps of "eelworm wool" and can survive in a dry condition for
several years; they may also become attached to the seeds of host plants (e.g. onions,
lucerne, Trifolium pratense, faba beans, Phlox drummondii). In clay soils, D. dipsaci
may persist for many years. Cool, moist conditions favour invasion of young plant tissue
by this nematode.
Over 450 hosts complicated by there being 8-10 host races or biotypes, some with
limited host range. Oat race: polyphagous, most grains, rye, corn, and oats. Alfalfa
race: rather specific, but alfalfa, many weeds, clovers. Bulb race: most bulbs,
daffodil, narcissus, and tulip. Other hosts include onion, garlic, carrots, peas,
potatoes, strawberry, sugarbeets; apples and peaches in nurseries; weeds.
In general, this nematode causes swellings and distortion
of aerial plant parts and necrosis or rotting of stem bases,
bulbs, tubers and rhizomes.
