Insect-Parasitic Nematodes Resembling Plant-Parasitic Forms

  • M. Remillet
Part of the Nato ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 7)


Entomo-nematology is a large discipline. Poinar (1975) records 3150 cases of association between nematodes and insects, and there are 1140 entries in Shephard (1974). However, only a small fraction of these nematodes resemble plant-parasitic forms. They are found among Aphelenchida and Tylenchida, and they represent about 450 species distributed among approximately fifty genera.
