Insect-parasitic nematodes, which obtain nutrients from a living host, arose independently in more than 20 lineages and in different geological periods since Silurian times. Except for Mermithidae, all these are Secernentea, which in various lineages exhibit different degrees between the first steps towards parasitism and obligate parasitism. Only in some tylenchids the transition passed through an ectoparasitc phase. From knowledge about the life cycles of parasitic and closely related free… CONTINUE READING
