Entomopathogenic Nematodes: Systematics, Phylogeny and Bacterial Symbionts deals with morphology, taxonomy, and systematics of entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) in the families Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae and bacteria associated with these nematodes. The first part of the book covers history, taxonomic status, family, and genus definitions of Entomopathogenic Nematodes (EPN). The next section include many useful aspects of morphology and methodology of EPN with illustrations and SEM photographs. Also included are instructions on how to make the measurements and how to use them in taxonomic work. A polychotomous key with scanning electron microscope (SEM) photographs and illustrations is provided. In the third part, full descriptions of all species are presented with the latest information about each species. In the fourth part, molecular and phylogenetic methods for working with EPN are presented, including the latest information and instruction 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.
