There are also six further chapters on more general issues such as extraction and identification of nematodes, modelling population dynamics and yield losses, molecular aids to diagnosis, use of nematodes in biological control of insects, quarantine, and cellular and molecular approaches to control. Written by leading authorities from the USA, UK, Canada, France, Netherlands, Bolivia, Australia and New Zealand the book overall is a definitive reference work for plant pathologists in general, and nematologists in particular.Evans, K. is the author of 'Plant Parasitic Nematodes in Temperate Agriculture' with ISBN 9780851988085 and ISBN 0851988083.
