Theratromyxa weberi, An Amoeba Predatory on Plant-Parasitic Nematodes
R. M. Sayre
Abstract
Theratromyxa weberi, an amoeba, was isolated and cultured in the laboratory to determine the physical conditions that influence its predation on plant parasitic nematodes. In greenhouse tests, the amoeba was a poor biological control agent of the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita.
