Practical Identification of Nematodes in Spain

Part of the Nato ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 7)


The research work on plant nematodes in Spain was started approximately in 1962, after a training in The Netherlands in 1960 that included identification of what has now been described as promorphs (Fortuner, 1989), and a course on statistics at the Imperial College of Science and Technology of London. The big problem at that time for an isolated non-expert was to identify nematodes from a large variety of sources, and it was found to be even more difficult to propose a quantitative evaluation of the size of the populations.
