This WWW site is designed as an aid
for nematode identification and systematic research, as well as a general
resource for the science of Nematology. The emphasis is on plant
parasitic nematodes and insect
parasitic nematodes . The
molecular diagnostic protocols are those used in the laboratory, some
designed by us, and others adapted from the literature.
One major effort is the characterization of plant parasitic nematodes from
great plains of North America . We will update this site continually
as we add new species, isolates and methods. Also you will find documents
relating to nematode
control and summaries of federally
funded regional research projects . Your comments
are welcome , and if you have nematode related material you'd like
to submit, we'll do our best to include it. We will try to respond to questions
in a timely manner.
