CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Behaviour and sensory perception.

In this chapter, behaviour is narrowly defined as neuromuscularly controlled movement of the nematode body or its parts that result in: (i) travel or rotation of the nematode through space (locomotion); (ii) events of physiological or developmental importance (hatching, feeding, copulation, egg...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Survival of parasitic nematodes outside the host.

This chapter examines the morphological, physiological and behavioural adaptations of nematodes (including plant parasitic nematodes), focusing principally on desiccation survival and the link to nematode dispersion. This link and the need to understand the temporal factors involved in survival are ...

Cover for Cold tolerance.

This chapter describes the strategies that nematodes use to survive low temperatures, the mechanisms that may be involved and how these mechanisms contribute to the strategies of cold tolerance, with emphasis on survival at temperatures below 0°C, where the animal is at risk of freezing.
