About this book

The book describes the basic aspects of nematology: Methodology, Morphology, Systematics and Classification, Biology, Physiology and Ecology. It is designed and written in an explicit manner so that undergraduate students without a nematology background can easily perceive basics of the discipline, and at the same time postgraduate students can get in-depth and up-to-date information on various fundamental and advanced aspects of nematology. The book contains around 80 schematic and natural diagrams.
