Media reviews

"There is . . . a scarcity of updated information that is compiled in one volume on plant-parasitic nematode physiology and biochemistry. The authors of this book have presented a 'very good condensation' of research on free-living nematodes and a meticulous review of salient research on the molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology of the plant-parasitic nematodes. The book contains 15 review chapters. . . . The authors are world-renowned experts in their field of nematology, and so they were able to present excellent reviews in a concise and well-focused manner. Their citations provide multiple access routes to key literature. . . . [T]he book is an excellent resource for those who need an introduction or overview of the latest developments in research on free-living and plant-parasitic nematodes. I would enthusiastically recommend this book to graduate students and other interested scientists in biological and agricultural fields . . ."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
