Aims and Objectives

  • Presentation and publication of nematological works within the context of phytomedicine related to research, extension and plant health
  • Networking between individuals and institutions with interest in phytonematology
  • Encouragement of young academics with interest in phytonematology
  • Interdisciplinary exchange with other nematological working groups (terrestrial and aquatic nematodes; parasites of vertebrates and invertebrates)

Main Topics

  • Ecology: Occurrence, distribution and econ. importance
  • Population dynamics: population density and density dependent factors
  • Assessment of damage and infestation, damage prediction, chemical/biological control, management strategies, resistance and tolerance of plants
  • Factors of host-parasite interaction of plant parasitic nematodes
  • Systematics, taxonomy and diagnostics

Cooperation Partners

Occasionally our working group cooperates with the DPG-working group Beneficial Arthropods and Entomopathogenic Nematodes.
