In studies carried out under controlled conditions, changes in the size and shape of nuclei were observed in corn roots parasitized by Tylenchorhynchus claytoni and Tylenchus agricola. Nuclei become spheroid in areas 1-3 mm behind the meristem of parasitized roots, whereas the same areas of non-parasitized roots had ellipsoidal nuclei. No differences were observed in nuclei in the meristematic zone. Since the nuclei of cortical cells were affected, and these cells apparently did not serve as feeding sites for the nematodes, it is probable that the stimulus which provoked the host response migrated from cell to cell.
