Identification of Rare Forms using Examples from Australia

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


Initially, the term ‘rare’ needs to be defined within the context of project Nemisys. What is a rare form? The dictionary (Delbridge, 1981) gives the following definition of ‘rare’:

“occurring far apart in space or time; unusual; uncommon; few in number; thinly distributed over an area; few and widely separated.”

There are also other meanings that are not applicable to nematodes.
