Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Nematode population dynamics and damage thresholds are applied aspects of population ecology. Research on cyst nematodes provides a significant portion of the knowledge base for application of population dynamics and damage thresholds for crop management decision-making related to nematodes. This chapter describes the current state of population dynamics and damage threshold knowledge for Heterodera schachtii (sugar beet cyst nematode), Globodera spp. (potato cyst nematodes), Heterodera glycines (soybean cyst nematode), and selected information about the rest of the more than 150 other species classified in the eight genera of cyst nematodes: Betulodera, Cactodera, Dolichodera, Globodera, Heterodera, Paradolichodera, Punctodera and Vittatidera.
