There is growing interest in the application of soil enzymes and nematode community indices as indicators of changes in soil quality under contrasting management practices. Although an abundant literature on this subject has arisen during the last 10 years, most of the studies have focused on measuring many soil quality indicators at a single or a few(More)
A new species of the genus Nothacrobeles is described from natural areas (a salt lake) in the Southeast Iberian Peninsula. Nothacrobeles lanceolatus sp. n. is characterized by its body length, two rows of cuticular punctations per annulus, labial probolae bifurcate with divergent prongs, pharyngeal corpus 2.4 to 3.5 times isthmus length, spermatheca length,(More)
Three new and one known species of the genus Aporcelaimellus, collected mainly in natural areas from the Iberian Peninsula and characterized by having a simple uterus and atypical caudal region are described and illustrated, including line drawings, LM pictures and/or SEM pictures. Aporcelaimellus deserticola sp. n. is distinguished by its body 1.79-2.43 mm(More)
The spatial distribution of 138 Dorylaimid and Mononchid species collected in a natural area from the Southeast Iberian Peninsula was studied. A chorological classification was used to examine distribution patterns shared by groups of species. Eighty species were classified into 14 collective and 16 individual chorotypes. The geographical projections of(More)
Three species of the genus Sectonema, namely S. demani, S. heynsi and S. macrospiculum, originally described by E. Altherr, are re-described on the basis of type material. Detailed descriptions, morphometrics and illustrations, including line drawings and/or LM pictures, diagnoses and remarks about their identity and later reports are provided for each(More)
Three rare nematode species of the family Belondiridae, originally described from and only known to occur in India are recorded for the first time in Vietnam: Axonchiumthoubalicum, Belondiramurtazai and Oxybelondiraparaperplexa. It is the first report of these three genera in this country. The three species are described, including new morphological data,(More)
The taxonomy of the genus Aporcelaimellus is revised and updated. A new definition is proposed, with several remarkable diagnostic characters: cuticle three-layered, especially distinguishable at caudal region, usually bearing a hyaline space between inner and intermediate layers at terminal portion of tail; cervical lacunae often present and well(More)
A new species, the third one from Vietnam, of the genus Aporcelinus is described from natural areas. Aporcelinus falcicaudatus sp. n. is characterized by its 1.28 to 1.63 mm long body, lip region offset by weak constriction and 16 to 18 µm broad, odontostyle 18 to 21 µm at its ventral side, neck 354 to 406 µm long, uterus tripartite and 61 to 95 µm long, V(More)
A new species of the genus Protorhabditis is described from agricultural areas in the South East of the Iberian Peninsula. Protorhabditis hortulana sp. n. is distinguished by its very small body length (189-222 μm in females), lateral field with two longitudinal wings, lip region rounded with fused lips, stoma 10-13 μm long lacking glottoid apparatus,(More)
Sectonema caobangense sp. n. from evergreen forest soil in Vietnam is described, including scanning electron micrograph (SEM) observations and D2-D3 LSU rDNA analysis. The new species is characterized by its 3.12 to 5.80 mm long body, lip region offset by deep constriction and 21 to 23 μm broad, mural tooth 13 to 14 μm long at its ventral side, 940 to 1,112(More)
