The increasing use of integrated crop management, often requiring a reduction in the reliance upon chemical control, means that the need to rapidly identify pest nematodes has never been greater. This second edition of this standard reference work familiar to all plant nematologists is therefore even more useful than its predecessor published in 1986.The in-depth description of the life histories of the genera of the Tylenchida have been retained and brought up-to-date through the inclusion of all the research carried out between the publication of the last edition and this new edition. This expanded edition includes detailed diagnoses of well over 200 genera and familial and ordinal groups, and is well-illustrated with drawings of type or representative species. These, together with comprehensive lists of species and genera and their synonymies provide the foundation for the status and validation of each taxon within the Tylenchida. A considerable amount of information is provided regarding the biology, ecology and pathogenicity of these parasites.

When I conceived this book, what I had in mind was what I did not know about coffee-parasitic nematodes (CPNs). Indeed, after reading many papers and several chapters in books, I felt far from having a comprehensive understanding of the subject. Not only would it be a daunting task to retrieve the numerous articles, reports, theses and dissertations on CPNs published since 1878, but it would also be impossible to learn, on my own, from all the enormous experience acquired by nematologists and coffee growers in so many countries. Therefore, this book is dedicated to those with restless minds, who want to know more about CPNs and their importance in coffee production worldwide. This book has been diligently written by top scientists in their areas of expertise or country, and it has been meticulously edited to guarantee precision without compromising an enjoyable read. I learned a lot from this book...I’m sure you will too. Finally, I’d like to thank Zuzana Bernhart from Springer, who believed in this project and decided to publish it; Susan Casement, who revised all chapters for grammatical correctness; and all the contributors, without whom this book would never have became a reality.

The genus "Meloidogyne" Goldi, 1892, or root-knot nematodes, represent a relatively small but economically important group of obligate plant pathogens. They are distributed worldwide and parasitize on almost every higher plant species. While reproducing and feeding within roots, they induce galls or root-knots and disorder the physiology of the infected plant, reducing crop yield and product quality. More than eighty nominal species have been described worldwide, while twenty species have been detected in Europe so far. This book includes a historical review on the genus, followed by a revision of the European species, and completed with a study on one of the most characteristic morphological structures within the genus: the perineal pattern.

Dieses Heft aus der Reihe "Suwasserfauna von Mitteleuropa" beginnt mit einer allgemeinen Beschreibung der Morphologie, Biologie und des Vorkommens von Nematoden (Rundwurmer, Groe meist ca. 0,5 - 3,0 mm), die teils im kapillaren Wasserfilm von Bodenteilchen, teils im Bodenschlamm von Graben, Seen, Flussen und Bachen leben. Methoden zum Sammeln, Toten, Fixieren und Praparieren werden beschrieben. Der Spezielle Teil behandelt alle in Mitteleuropa vorkommenden limnischen Arten der Klasse Secernentea (aus den Ordnungen Tylenchida und Aphelenchida) in Form von Bestimmungsschlusseln und Artdiagnosen. Erganzend dazu ist bereits erschienen das Heft 4/2-2 (ISBN 3-8274-0903-9), das die limnischen Arten der zweiten Nematoden-Klasse Adenophorea behandelt.

This book describes the basic aspects of nematology, viz., Methodology, Morphology, Systematics and Classification, Biology, Physiology and Ecology. It is designed and written in an explicit manner so that undergraduate students without a nematology background can easily perceive basics of the discipline, and at the same time postgraduate students can get in-depth and up-to-date information on various fundamental and advanced aspects of nematology. The book contains around 80 schematic and natural diagrams.
