BOOK REVIEWS W. DECRAEMER: The Family Trichodoridae: Stubby Root and Virus Vector Nematodes. Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht/Boston/London, 1995, 360 pp. ISBN 0-7923-3773-5. Price: Dfl 210.00; US$ 142.00; UK£ 92.50. (Publication date: 2 November, 1995). The book is divided into nine chapters: 1. Introduction; 2. General Morphology; 3. Systematics; 4. Species descriptions; 5. Keys to the trichodorid species; 6. Economically important species; 7. Ecological aspects: distribution and bionomics; 8. Trichodorids as virus vector nematodes; 9.

A comprehensive bibliography and index are provided together with a list of abbreviations. A short, unbound, Corrigenda is appended.
