How to Manage Pests
Interactive Tools and Models: NEMABASE
The NEMABASE database gives fast, easy access to the host status of plants for plant-parasitic nematodes, and helps with crop rotation, cover cropping, and cultivar selection decisions for nematode management. You can search NEMABASE directly online.
Developed in the UC Davis Department of Entomology and Nematology, NEMABASE contains extensive lists of cover crops, native plants, crop cultivars, and their host status for a wide range of nematodes. You can also search for plant species or cultivars that are resistant to certain nematodes. You'll find information on:
This information has been extracted from over 2,500 articles published over the last century. We estimate that 90 percent of the available data on plant and nematode interactions has been gathered into the database.
Why was NEMABASE developed?
NEMABASE collates, interprets, and evaluates available information on the host status of plants to the plant-parasitic nematodes, and makes it available as a basis for management decisions. (More...)
NEMABASE and NEMAPLEX
NEMABASE is incorporated as a component of Nemaplex. The linkage allows users to access information on the biology, ecology, and management of nematodes, both pest and beneficial species.
World Wide Web version of NEMABASE
The database contents are on the UC Davis Department of Nematology Nemaplex server. Click "Enter Nemaplex" and then click on "NEMABASE." Enter your search criteria according to the instructions given there. Also from the Nemaplex main menu you can access many other aspects of nematodes and nematology.
Database design and field descriptions
NEMABASE is structured as a series of relational database tables with fields for the following features of nematodes and plants, and for their interaction:
