Root-knot nematodes are the most economically important group of plant-parasitic nematodes worldwide, and their control presents a major global challenge. Advances are being made in understanding their biology, host-parasite interaction and management strategies. This comprehensive guide with contributions from international experts covers the taxonomy, classification, morphology, life-cycle biology, resistance, sampling, detection and control strategies of these pests, providing an essential eference for reserachers and students in plant nematology and pathology, parasitology, agriculture and agronomy.
