Description: This Florida Entomologist scholarly article, written by Thomas G. Benoit, Jennifer Locke, James R. Marks and Clark W. Beasley, (3-page PDF) investigates the ability of tardigrades, also known as water bears, to transmit phytopathogenic bacteria to suitable plant hosts where they could then cause disease. The study showed that when tardigrades were inoculated with Xanthomonas campestris pv. raphani (a type of phytopathogenic bacteria), they shed bacteria that caused leaf spot disease in radish plants. A brief summary and also references are included within the document.
