CD-ROM Root-knot nematode taxonomic database CAB International, Wallingford, Oxon OX10 8DE, UK email@example.com http://www.cabi.org
In May 1997 CAB International published a new CD-ROM product entitled Root-knot nematode taxonomic database. This disc brings together data that is otherwise scattered in the often obscure literature and presents it in an accessible and user-friendly form. It will enable researchers around the world to have access to all of the information that is necessary to identify a population, to recognize an undescribed species, and to describe it adequately. This valuable resource is essentially a CD-ROM library for the entire Meloidogyne genus, including more than 80 of the original descriptions. All of the historical papers since the first observation of the genus in 1855 are included. Descriptions in foreign languages have been translated into English and the text of both the original and the translation are on the disc. Features include over 450 articles, monographs, book chapters, photographs & drawings, video clips, over 100 picture and distribution maps. The Root-knot nematode CD is available for both PC and MAC use and is designed to provide an up-to-date reference as well as a teaching resource for nematologists and others interested in this group of nematodes.
