About this book

Provides a comprehensive review of entomopathogenic nematology. It begins by reviewing fundamental biology and setting a taxonomic foundation for nematodes and their bacterial symbionts. Several chapters are devoted to functional processes involved in parasitism and to nematode ecology. Later chapters describe technological advances and control methodologies.

Contents

Nematode and bacterial taxonomy, systematics, and symbiosis; virulence mechanisms; biogeography; physiological and biochemical aspects of parasitism; survival biology; natural enemies; behavioural ecology; genetic improvement; bacterial metabolites; formulation, application and production technology; case histories. (Part contents).

Media reviews


"Seventeen contributions, presented by Gaugler (entomology, Rutgers U.) provide a review of the basic and applied biology of the kind of worms that are lethal parasites of insects and hence are viewed as a useful tool as a biological control agent of agricultural insect pests. New achievements in genetic engineering, biodiversity, fermentation, toxins, soil ecology, host-parasite interactions, symbiosis, safety considerations, and management are explained. After summarizing the distribution of the nematodes, functional process involved in parasitism and ecology are covered. Control methodologies in nematode commercial evolution are stressed with analysis of critical issues that impact nematodes application, production, quality, and commercialization strategies. Research gaps are discussed and promising approaches are suggested."--SciTech Book News
