Accurate and detailed information on the fundamental biology of free-living and plant-parasitic nematodes has several important functions. It is needed to gain an understanding of their highly complex ecology and, since many plant-parasitic nematodes are major agricultural pests, it also greatly enhances attempts to implement crop protection strategies. In addition, information on physiology and biochemistry has particular relevance to studies of gene function in nematodes and the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has become established as one of the most important model organisms for molecular genetic studies. Written by leading research workers from Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand, this is the only up-to-date reference book which reviews and integrates all the current research findings on the physiology and biochemistry of these organisms, including the molecular information which has accumulated in recent years. It is essential reading for researchers, advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students and lecturers in plant nematology, parasitology, plant pathology and agricultural zoology and will also be a valuable reference source for students of invertebrate biology, crop protection, and pest management.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There is . . . a scarcity of updated information that is compiled in one volume on plant-parasitic nematode physiology and biochemistry. The authors of this book have presented a 'very good condensation' of research on free-living nematodes and a meticulous review of salient research on the
molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology of the plant-parasitic nematodes. The book contains 15 review chapters. . . . The authors are world-renowned experts in their field of nematology, and so they were able to present excellent reviews in a concise and well-focused manner. Their citations
provide multiple access routes to key literature. . . . [T]he book is an excellent resource for those who need an introduction or overview of the latest developments in research on free-living and plant-parasitic nematodes. I would enthusiastically recommend this book to graduate students and other
interested scientists in biological and agricultural fields . . ."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
