An avirulent isolate (C14-5) of the pinewood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, was inoculated onto 45 seedlings of the susceptible host Japanese black pine (Pinus thunbergii) and its viability was investigated. The nematode survived inside host seedlings for approximately 7 months even when the host seemed to overcome the infection based on lack of foliar wilting and the observation of normal oleoresin flow.
