About this book

This book examines all aspects of practical plant nematology in subtropical and tropical agriculture. The second edition has been fully revised and updated to take into consideration developments that have taken place since the publication of the first edition in 1990. It covers all the major food and cash crops that are of economic significance in the tropics and subtropics. It provides practical guidance on methods of extraction, processing and diagnosis of different plant and soil nematodes and on integrated pest management. The information in this book is supported by abundant illustrations, including 128 colour photographs.
