About this book

Language: Dutch

De Nematoden van Nederland is a identification table for freshwater and terrestrial nematodes of the Netherlands. It is an important reference and identification work for specialists dealing with freshwater and soil, and for laypeople. Nematodes are excellent indicators of soil quality. They occur in large numbers in both water and the soil. In actual fact, four out of every five multicellular organisms on the planet are nematodes! On average, you will find about 30,000 of them in a litre of soil, divided over some 30-50 species. This includes plant parasites, fungal nematodes, carnivores, and bacterivores.

De Nematoden van Nederland covers a wide range of topics and includes:
- Identification tables for Dutch freshwater and terrestrial nematodes (excluding animal parasites and marine nematodes)
- Biology, morphology, anatomy, and systematics
- Techniques and identification
- The use of nematodes as an indicator species
- Taxonomic classification of nematodes
- A key to the families and genera, and a systematic part down to species level
- a large number of illustrations, both black-and-white photos and black-and-white line drawings

Summary in Dutch:
Identificatietabel voor zoetwater- en bodembewonende nematoden van Nederland. Een belangrijk naslag- en determineerwerk voor vakmensen (water, bodem) en niet-specialisten. Nematoden zijn uitstekend geschikt voor het beoordelen van de bodemkwaliteit.

Nematoden of aaltjes komen in grote aantallen in het water en de bodem voor. In feite behoren vier van de vijf meercellige dieren op aarde tot de nematoden. In een liter grond worden er gemiddeld 30 000 aangetroffen, verdeeld over 30-50 soorten. Hiertoe behoren o.a. parasieten van hogere planten, schimmelende nematoden, carnivoren en bacterie-eters.
- Identificatietabel voor de Nederlandse zoetwater- en terrestrische nematoden (exclusief de dierparasieten en mariene nematoden)
