Article
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are considered as a possible alternative for the biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes. The false root-knot nematode Nacobbus aberrans is an endoparasite that induces the formation of galls in plant roots and causes severe damage to crops of economic importance. The purpose of the study was to evaluate t...
Article
Two main soil management practices are generally used for soybean production: monoculture (MC) and crop rotation (CR). These strategies have different impacts on soil microbial communities. Among them, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are well known to provide access to nutrients in a majority of cultivated plants. AMF communities have been shown...

Background and aims Plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs) are among the most important pests in agriculture. Chemical inputs are widely used for their control; however, the negative impact of these agrochemicals on environmental and human health is a current concern. Biological control and interventions on rhizosphere signaling are promising ecofriendly...
Article
Full-text available
Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are among the most important macronutrients for plant growth and development, and the most widely used as fertilizers. Understanding how plants sense and respond to N and P deficiency is essential to optimize and reduce the use of chemical fertilizers. Strigolactones (SLs) are phytohormones acting as modulators and s...
Article
● The great majority of plants gain access to soil nutrients and enhance their performance under stressful conditions through symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). The benefits that AMF confer vary among species and taxonomic groups. However, a comparative analysis of the different benefits among AMF has not yet been performed. ● We c...

Article
Full-text available
Alien invasive trees may expand and form monospecific forests by enhancing mutualism with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and/or preventing the establishment of other plants through accumulation of antagonists for native plants. The success of invasive plants also has been associated with their higher phenotypic plasticity. Here we tested these...
Article
Soil use and management modify mycorrhizal interactions, but how these changes affect the growth and nutrition of crops under different contexts has been poorly studied. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (AMF) spore communities belonging to two no-till cropping systems (soybean monoculture and...
Chapter
The Chaco forest is one of the most diverse ecosystems in South America (SA) and harbors different vegetation units with high levels of biodiversity. However, the information about how belowground communities are spatially structured across vegetation units in the Chaco forest is scarce. We aimed to analyze the variation of taxonomic and phylogenet...
Article
Heavy metal (HM) pollution of soils is one of the most important and unsolved environmental problems affecting the world, with alternative solutions currently being investigated through different approaches. Arbuscular my-corrhizal fungi (AMF) are soil inhabitants that form symbiotic relationships with plants. This alleviates HM toxicity in the hos...

Entrevista realizada por el canal de comunicación y divulgación de la FCEFyN de la UNC en el programa “Tecnociencia”. Tema: "Hongos micorrícicos en plantas nativas y exóticas, cultivadas e invasoras". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD1twX2hOkk.
Article
Meloidogyne hapla and Nacobbus aberrans are plant-parasitic nematodes that form galls in the roots of infected plants and cause important economic losses. Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) of the genera Steinernema and Heterorhabditis infect and kill insects via toxins produced by their symbiotic bacteria. EPNs have shown to have an antagonistic ef...
Thesis
Full-text available
Nacobbus aberrans is a sedentary endoparasite that causes histological alterations to the root tissues and produces severe damage to crops of agricultural importance. The arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) establish a symbiotic relationship with most plant species through chemical communication mediated by components of radical exudates; among them...
Article
Full-text available
Knowledge about tree production practices is essential to support forest restoration projects, but is still lacking for many tree species. Maytenus boaria is a neotropical tree distributed across the temperate and subtropical South American mountains. In central Argentina, it is mainly restricted to the most preserved forest remnants. Attempts to p...
Article
Full-text available
The plant-parasitic nematode Nacobbus aberrans is an endoparasite that induces gall formation in the roots and causes severe losses to diverse crops. Some populations of this nematode show preference for certain hosts, revealing the existence of “races/groups” with different behaviour and making nematode management difficult. A possible biological...
Article
The use of antagonistic biological agents, such as fungi and bacteria, offers an economical and safe strategy to manage plant–parasitic nematodes in infested fields. The false root-knot nematode, Nacobbus aberrans, is a damaging parasite of many agronomic and horticultural crops in South and North America. The management of this nematode is challen...
