The volume deals with morphology, taxonomy and systematics of entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) in the families Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae and bacteria associated with these nematodes.
In the first part, history, taxonomic status, family and genus definitions of EPN are mentioned. In the second part, all useful aspects of morphology and methodology of EPN are mentioned with illustrations and SEM photographs and instructions on how to make the measurements, and how to use them in taxonomic work. A polychotomous key with SEM photographs and illustrations is provided. In the third part, full descriptions of all species are presented with latest information about each species. In the fourth part, molecular and phylogenetic methods for working with EPN are presented, including the latest information and instructions on how to use molecular data in taxonomic work. In the last part, bacteria associated with this group of nematodes are discussed in the context of the latest information about methodology, biology and taxon.

solutions For tests on nematode eggs, ethanol solutions were prepared at the same concentrations as in the previous assay. In addition, the same methodology was used, but an aqueous suspension (0.5 ml) containing 1000 eggs of H. glycines was substituted for the J2 suspension. The microtubes and vials were

only a few individuals of Pratylenchus thornei were found (Table 2). The density of free-living nematodes was in the expected range, and soil samples from a nearby field with corn salad showed high numbers of M. hapla ; thus, methodological problems of extraction procedures were excluded. Instead

It is interesting to consider that different batches of cysts appeared to respond differently to RLS obtained from the same varieties of plants, using the same methodology

) distance method based on an allelic frequencies matrix built using two different methodologies. In addition, Maximum-Parsimony (MP) and Maximum-Likelihood (ML) phylogenetic methods were done in order to corroborate the phylogenies obtained. Our results showed a great disparity in the NJ trees obtained
