Studies on the parasitic development of Heterodera avenae and related anatomical changes within roots of oats (Avena saliva) and corn (Zea mays) showed that the corn plant, at least of the variety used in the experiments, is an unsuitable host for the development of this nematode. Nematodes were found to readily enter roots of both hosts but their development in corn was inhibited by a necrotic tissue reaction and female nematodes failed to produce viable cysts. Nematode development and related histological changes within invaded root tissues are described for each host and differences in host-parasite relationships are discussed.
