Classification of Tylenchida

  • Mohammad Rafiq Siddiqi
Part of the Nato ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 7)


Living organisms undergo a continuous change, as do their physical surroundings. Some changes in animals appear in a short time, others could take thousands of years to show. Comparative studies of animals are based on these changes occurring through time and are governed by the philosophy of organic evolution.
