CABI Book Chapter

Plant nematology.

Book cover for Plant nematology.


This book, divided into three parts, provides a wide range of information on plant-parasitic nematodes. The chapters in Part I presents the basic structures of nematodes, followed by a chapter on molecular taxonomy, systematics and phylogeny. The subsequent four chapters focus on the major groups of plant-parasitic nematodes, presenting information on their morphology, taxonomy, basic biology and ...


Chapter 7 (Page no: 219)

Reproduction, physiology and biochemistry.

This chapter describes the reproduction, development, musculature and neurobiology, biosynthesis, respiration, intermediary metabolism, osmotic, ionic regulation and excretion, and survial strategies of plant parasitic nematodes.
