Caption: Cotton root damage. Root-knot galls (swellings) on cotton plant (Gossypium hirsutum) roots. These galls are caused by the root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne sp.) larvae, which live in and feed on the root tissue. The presence of the nematode decreases the uptake of water and nutrients by the plant, leading to stunting and reduction of yield. Photographed in Mississippi, USA.
