Phylogenetic relationships within the genus Steinernema (Nematoda: Rhabditida) as inferred from analyses of sequences of the ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 region of rDNA and morphological features
Eighty four new and four published ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 sequences of rDNA obtained from different populations of 24 nominal species and 28 isolates of 16 putative Steinernema species were analysed usingExpand

Molecular phylogeny of slug-parasitic nematodes inferred from 18S rRNA gene sequences.
Terrestrial molluscs are diverse and are infected by many nematodes. We propose a phylogeny of slug-parasitic nematodes using 18S rRNA gene sequences from nematodes isolated from slugs collected fromExpand

Habitat associations of two entomopathogenic nematodes: a quantitative study using real-time quantitative polymerase chain reactions.
1. Despite nematodes being the most abundant animals on earth, very few animal ecologists study them, probably because of the difficulties of identifying them to species by morphological methods. 2.Expand

Nematode phylogeny and embryology
Blaxter et al. presented the phylogenetic tree of the phylum Nematoda based on the sequences of small subunit (SSU) ribosomal DNA (see also ref. 2). At the level of higher-order classification, thisExpand

Comparative phylogenetic informativity of single ribosomal cluster regions in freshwater horsehair worms (Gordiacea, Nematomorpha)
The informativity of some regions of the ribosomal cluster (rDNA) in freshwater horsehair worms (Nematomorpha) has been analyzed to trace the nucleotide differences for discrimination of species andExpand

Steinernema kraussei (Rhabditida, Steinernematidae) from Iceland
Abstract A survey of soils from Iceland for the presence of cold-active entomopathogenic nematodes yielded a single isolate of Steinernema kraussei. This isolate was compared morphologically with theExpand

Two new species of Steinernema Travassos, 1927 with short infective juveniles from Nepal
During a survey conducted in 2007 in Nepal, two new species of entomopathogenic nematodes, Steinernema nepalense sp. n. and Steinernema surkhetense sp. n. were recovered from soil samples collectedExpand
