Plant Parasitic Nematodes in Subtropical and Tropical Agriculture is a practical book for use by agriculturists, researchers, teachers, students and extension workers. It covers the main nematode parasites of the major crops of the subtropics and tropics. The editor's aim was not to produce an encyclopaedia of crop-nematode associations, but to concentrate on those nematode species which have been shown to cause yield loss. A special feature of the book is the collaboration of two or more authors in the writing of each chapter. The authors, deliberately chosen from different geographical areas, were selected on the basis of their having worked on particular crop-nematode associations. The opening chapters constitute a theoretical and practical introduction to nematology. These chapters on morphology, methods and techniques for determing the impact of nematodes on crop growth are complemented by indexes and a section of high quality colour plates showing symptoms of damage.
