Title: Interaction between root lesion nematode, Pratylenchus neglectus, and root-rotting fungi of wheat / by Abdolhossein Taheri.

Abstract: This study concludes that in soils in South Australia where root-rotting fungi and P. neglectus exist together, root disease of wheat is caused by their combined effect. Evidence suggests that P. neglectus not only contributes to this interaction through mechanical wounding of roots, but also causes biochemical and physiological changes in plants, making them more prone to fungal infection.
