Abstract:Seedlings of Pinus elliottii var. elliottii Engelm., P. palustris Mill., and P. taeda L. were severely stunted when grown in the greenhouse in soil infested with the stubby-root nematode, Trichodorus christiei Allen. Root and shoot weights of all three pine species grown in infested soil were significantly less than those of seedlings in noninfested soil. Plants grown in infested soil also had significantly less total root surface.
