Science For Kids: nematologist
Nematologists use microscopes to look at nematode eggs. A nematologist is a scientist who studies worms—but not earthworms. Instead, this scientist studies worms called nematodes or roundworms. These worms don't have segments like the earthworm does. Many of them are parasites that live on or inside animals or plants and cause trouble for them. So, you can see why agriculture would need this type of scientist.
