Practical Identification of Nematodes in Spain
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.
