Book Description

The Biology of Nematodes synthesizes knowledge of the biology of free-living, plant-parasitic, and animal-parasitic nematodes. Contributed works by recognized researchers apply groundbreaking molecular techniques, many of which resulting from work on Caenorhabditis elegans, toward new approaches to the study of nematode worms. Topics covered include: systematics and phylogeny, neuromuscular physiology, locomotion, sense organs, behavior, aging, the nematode genome, survival strategies, immunology, epidemiology, structure and organization, gametes and fertilization, development, and feeding, digestion, and metabolism. This volume is valuable for research scientists working in agriculture, control, helminthology, immunology, medical and veterinary parasitology, molecular biology, nematology, plant pathology and zoology.

Editorial Reviews


This multi-authored volume edited by Donald Lee is the culmination of his long term commitment to furthering our understanding of these organisms which are ubiquitous in nature and often important parasites of plants and animals. In this book the vast body of knowledge about nematodes is organised into themes and within each theme, the available knowledge is discussed across the whole arena of nematode variation. It is particularly pleasing to read reviews that incorporate work done not only at the end of the 20th Century but in some cases, as long ago as the 19th Century. This is a tribute to the scholarship of the participating authors and thus, a commendation of this interesting volume Bridget M. Ogilvie, DBE, ScD, from the Foreword
