Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The Introduction to Nematodes is a multimedia presentation that contains over 100 multi-layered slides comprised of 481 photographs, 155 illustrations, 17 tables and 14 videos. The presentation is formatted as a Quicktime movie and will play on either a Macintosh or a PC computer. The presentation is accompanied by a syllabus, with notes and credits for each slide, an index of the 19 sections (General, History, Morphology, Body Systems, Symptoms, Loss Estimates, Movement & Dissemination, Sampling, Extraction, Population Dynamics, Thresholds, Management, Taxonomy, Parasitism, Key for Identification, Highlighted Genera, Molecular Diagnostics, Disease Complexes and Entomogenous Nematodes), a “read me” file which contains instructions for obtaining and using the Quicktime player, and a set of “thumbnail views” of each slide. This presentation can be obtained as a free download from websites hosted by the Society of Nematologists (SON), the Organization of Nematologists of Tropical America (ONTA), and the European Society of Nematologists (ESN). This presentation will highlight a new section featuring molecular diagnostics of plant-parasitic nematodes.
