Nematology: Fundamentals and Approaches

Nematodes are non-segmented helminths and relatively simple structured organisms. They possess bilateral symmetry and a complete digestive tract with oral and anal openings, they taper to a relative point at both ends. They are also found to have separate sexes, with the male being smaller than the female, ranging in size from a few millimetres to over a meter in length. Their cylindrical non-segmented bodies allow them to be easily distinguishable from other helminths. Nematodes are the most numerous multicellular animals on earth. A handful of soil will contain thousands of the microscopic worms, many of them parasites of insects, plants or animals. Free-living species are abundant, including nematodes that feed on bacteria, fungi, and other nematodes, yet the vast majority of species encountered are poorly understood biologically. There are nearly 20,000 described species classified in the phylum Nemata.
