About this book

Entomopathogenic Nematodes deals with morphology, taxonomy, and systematics of entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) in the families Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae and bacteria associated with these nematodes.

In the first part, history, taxonomic status, family and genus definitions of EPN are mentioned. In the second part, all useful morphology and methodology of EPN are mentioned with illustrations and SEM photographs and instruction on how to make the measurements, and how to use them in taxonomic work. A polychotomous key with SEM photographs and illustrations is provided. In the third part, full descriptions of all species are presented with latest information about each species. In the fourth part, molecular, phylogenetic methods in working with EPN are mentioned with latest information and instruction on how to use molecular data in taxonomic work. In the last part, bacteria associated with this group of nematodes were mentioned with latest information about methodology, biology, and taxon.

Media reviews

"This book is a must-have for al those who want to describe new species of either Steinernema or Heterorhabditis. [...] The book provides monumental information to help identify these entomopathogenic nematodes and use them as biocontrol agents"
- M. Rafiq Siddiqi, International Journal of Nematology (December 2007, vol 17 no. 2)

"The publication of this book is an event that will send very positive stimuli across this specific field of zoology – EPN studies [...] This book will influence studies of entomopathogenic nematodes for years ahead. [Above all] it will make life easier for anyone intending to describe new EPN pecies or to isolate associated bacteria, and to use molecular techniques to study their phylogenetic links."
- Sergei Spiridinov, Russian Journal of Nematology, vol 16 (2008) pp. 67
