Roots of almond may be damaged by nematode parasites and affect the whole tree. Root surface is eroded, severe damage to root vascular tissue occurs, giant cells are formed and most of the cells are occupied by egg masses of nematodes. Clumping of root cells occur. Due to vascular tissue damage leaves are also affected and yield is reduced. This information is useful for parasitologists, plant pathologists, researchers in this field and fruit growers.
