Cover for Molecular systematics and phylogenetic reconstruction of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Steinernema</i> and <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Heterorhabditis</i>.

Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) belonging to the genera Heterorhabditis and Steinernema possess the attribute of potential biological insecticides and are therefore attractive from a commercial viewpoint. These nematodes, in general, are relatively conserved in gross morphology such as...

Cover for Beneficial nematodes in agroecosystems: a global perspective.

This chapter outlines the historical records of insect nematology before highlighting the major groups of beneficial nematodes. These include entomopathogenic nematodes to use against insect pests, slug nematodes to manage mollusc pests, entomophilic nematodes such as Thripinema to manage thrips,...

Cover for Toxic secretions of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Photorhabdus</i> and their efficacy against crop insect pests.

Photorhabdus spp. are entomopathogenic bacteria that mutualistically associate with heterorhabditid nematodes. This chapter is devoted to reporting the toxic secretions of Photorhabdus bacteria and their efficacy against crop insect pests. Yet, because these bacteria are fairly similar to members...
