Abstract  

Recent advances in the power and capabilities of personal computers have brought the algorithms and representational methods of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to the desktop. Information that has relationships between elements may be represented spatially, especially if some distance metric can be brought to bear. This paper discusses information cartography, the use of spatial methods for the display of non-Geographic data.

The antagonistic effect of thirteen Pseudomonas aeruginosa and thirteen strains of other Pseudomonas species was studied on the soil-borne phytopathogenic Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium solani fungi.  The inhibition of pathogen colony growth was tested with two different in vitro techniques using the same type of culture media. In case of the spread slant technique the antagonists induced a significantly stronger inhibition on the growth of pathogens than in case of spot transfer. Among the 26 investigated Pseudomonas strains, P. aeruginosa strains were generally more effective against the fungal pathogens. Rhizoctonia solani proved to be affected to a greater extent by the bacterial strains studied than the Fusarium solani representative. The possibility of in vitro strain selection of biocontrol microbes is being further discussed .
