About this book

Nematodes are the most wide spread multicellular animals in Nature and analysis of nematodes in terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments as well as their role and function in ecosystems can be used for environmental monitoring. Classical and molecular approaches to nematode community analysis will be addressed and the contemporary field of nematodes as biosensors and genomic and post genomic aspects of nematode bioindicators will also be included. Case studies stress the importance of these bioindicators and demonstrate the commercial potential of these technologies.
