Color enhanced Scanning Electron Micrograph of the whiplike larva of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita penetrating a tomato root. Once inside, the larva establishes a feeding site and causes nutrient-robbing galls to form on cells. As the larva consumes nutrients, the plant's growth is stunted. Magnification 900X.
