Abstract
Invasion of a susceptible root by larvae of species of Meloidogyne Goeldi usually results in major histological changes in p1ant 'cells in The vicinity of the nematode. These histological changes have been described by Christie (1936) and Bird (1962). Bird (1962) reported that giant cell development and maintenance in roots of dwarf bean {Pharsalus vulgaris L. cv. Brown Beauty) infected with M. javanica (Treub) Chit wood, appear to depend on a continuous stimulus f110m the Nematode; physical removal of the nematode resulted in breakdown of the giant cells.
