The Mesostigmatid Mite Protogamasellus mica, an Effective Predator of Free-Living and Plant-Parasitic Nematodes

Protogamasellus mica was extracted from a sugarcane field in Australia and cultured on bacterial-feeding nematodes. Studies with various nematodes in laboratory arenas showed that one mite and its progeny reduced nematode numbers by between 26 and 50 nematodes/day. A bacterivore (Mesorhabditis sp.), a fungivore (Aphelenchus avenae), and two plant parasites (root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne javanica and root-lesion nematode, Pratylenchus zeae) were all reduced at much the same rate despite the

Reclaimed desert habitats favor entomopathogenic nematode and microarthropod abundance compared to ancient farmlands in the Nile Basin

abundance in sites with or without specific mite families were compared using Kruskal–Wallis Test. Multivariate analyses were performed using the software R (R Development Core Team, ‘Vegan’ package). Principal component analysis (PCA) was used to reveal acari mite and soil properties that contribute to the total spatial variability of the two ecoregions. Detrended Canonical Correspondence Analysis (DCCA) was employed to determine the heterogeneity of the system. A value below 3.0 suggested that the

Optimizing for taxonomic coverage: a comparison of methods to recover mesofauna from soil

nematode populations. For example, the mesostigmatid mite Protogamasellus mica was shown to consume bactivorous, fungivorous, and phytophagous nematode species at approximately the same rate regardless of the size or motility of its prey (Stirling et al., 2017). As such, microarthropods are among a diverse guild of soil organisms that attenuates processes such as crop loss to plant parasitic nematodes (Joharchi et al., 2015; Yang et al., 2020) and biological control of crop pests by entomopathogenic
