From the reviews of the first edition: "It should occupy a central place in any relevant library as well as on the personal shelves of anyone interested in the parasitic nematodes from molecular biologists to population ecologists."--Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology
"This excellent book represents one of the key works on nematology and parasitology ... Both the author and the publisher are to be congratulated on this publication."--Folia Parasitologica
"[T]his book will become an essential companion to the student of parasitology and nematology."--Journal of Parasitology
"A plethora of original primary literature is cited throughout the book. Many good illustrations accompany several well-described parasites. The author is very well published in several areas of the parasitic nematodes and is a credible authority for the subject. The book is a fairly inclusive attempt to summarize the current knowledge of development and transmission of all parasitic nematodes
