The offered volume intends to review the biological control theme of phytonematodes from several prospects: ecological; applicative as well as commercial state of the art; understanding the mode-of-action of various biocontrol systems; interaction between the plant host, nematodes' surface and microorganism's; candidates for biocontrol; extrapolation of the wide knowledge existed in another systems for understanding biocontrol processes: C. elegans as a model and lessons from other natural systems; and exploiting advanced genomic tools to promote understanding biocontrol processes and thereafter improve specific biological control agents.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Provides an overview of biological control systems and is a useful summary chapter with a realistic appraisal of various approaches. ... Overall, it has been edited competently ... . 'the challenge for this book is how far the editors and chapters' authors have achieved the objective of reviewing the biological control theme from new perspective'. On a superficial level of the book achieves this objective. ... This book is 'thought provoking', in that it indicates ways forward that might enhance use of biological control agents." (Roland N. Perry, Nematology, Vol. 14 (1), 2012)
