Photorhabdus luminescens subsp. noenieputensis subsp. nov., a symbiotic bacterium associated with a novel Heterorhabditis species related to Heterorhabditis indica
(Society for General Microbiology, 2013-05)
The bacterial symbiont AM7T, isolated from a novel entomopathogenic nematode species of the genus Heterorhabditis, displays the main phenotypic traits of the genus Photorhabdus and is highly pathogenic to Galleria mellonella. ...
Description of Xenorhabdus khoisanae sp. nov., the symbiont of the entomopathogenic nematode Steinernema khoisanae
(Society for General Microbiology, 2013-09)
Bacterial strain SF87T, and additional strains SF80, SF362 and 106-C, isolated from the nematode Steinernema khoisanae, are non-bioluminescent Gram-reaction-negative bacteria that share many of the carbohydrate fermentation ...
Rearing of the banded fruit weevil, Phlyctinus callosus (Schonherr) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) and control with entomopathogenic nematodes
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The banded fruit weevil, Phlyctinus callosus (Schönherr), is a key pest of apples, nectarines and grapevines in the southern areas of the Western Cape. The control of P. callosus is not satisfactory and ...
Characterisation of nematode symbiotic bacteria and the in vitro liquid culture of Heterorhabditis zealandica and Steinernema yirgalemense
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Entomopathogenic nematodes have the potential to be outstanding biocontrol agents against agricultural pest insects. Combined with their bacterial symbionts, these biocontrol agents have proven to be very ...
