THE INFLUENCE OF TOBACCO RING SPOT VIRUS AND TOBACCO MOSAIC VIRUS ON THE GROWTH OF MELOIDOGYNE JAVANICA BY ALAN F. BIRD CSIRO, Division of Horticultural Research, Glen Osmond, South Australia Both tobacco ring spot virus (TRSV) and tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) are capable of influencing the host-parasite relationship of Meloidogyne javanica. More nematodes enter TRSV infected beans than uninfected controls although in both cases the rate of growth of the nematodes is the same. There was no evidence of a synergistic effect between M. javanica and TRSV on root growth in beans. Nematodes grow more rapidly in TMV infected tomatoes than in uninfected controls although the presence of the virus does not appear to influence the number of nematodes entering the plant. INTRODUCTION Interest in the role of nematodes as vectors of virus diseases was initiated by Shope (1941) who showed that the swine lungworms Metastrongylus elongatus and Choerostrongylus pudendotectu.r could serve as intermediate hosts in transmit- ting swine influenzia virus to swine. The role of nematodes as virus vectors was firmly established by Hewitt, Raski & Goheen (1958). They showed that the nematodes Xiphinema index could transmit fanleaf virus to healthy grapevines. Subsequently, numerous other nematode-virus interactions
