"This book should be useful to students and others who wish to identify plant-parasitic nematodes without delving into the complexities of nematode systematics. Although the bulk of the book is based on the 1975 edition it has been brought up-to-date by the addition of an extensive addendum together with appropriate references, including those containing more detailed keys to species."-D. J. Hunt, Plant Pathology
