Naturally infested roots of mango (Mangifera indica L.) collected from Oderolal farm, district Hyderabad, Sindh from a depth of 0-30 cm revealed that juveniles of Meloidogyne javanicapenetrated the roots by puncturing action of the stylet. Great variation in cell sizes was observed. The giant cells present were in the process of liquefaction and the cells of the cortex were full of matrix causing disruption. Moreover the disruption of cortical cells due to migration of larvae partly contributed to the development of knots in mango roots.
