abstract
Root-knot and cyst-nematodes can establish a very sophisticated interaction with the roots of their hostplants by which local differentiation of vascular tissuecells happens. We shall mainly make a study about the differentiation of the plantcells asreaction upon signals from the nematode. Plant-promotors induced by nematodes, specific in the feedingstructures, will be isolated and caracterized.
