Morphological and Ecological Characterization of Steinernema feltiae (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) Rioja Strain Isolated from Bibio hortulanus (Diptera: Bibionidae) in Spain.
A new strain of Steinernema feltiae (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) was isolated in La Rioja (Spain) from larvae of Bibio hortulanus (Diptera: Bibionidae). A comparative morphometric analysis of this
Evaluation of Indigenous Entomopathogenic Nematodes as Potential Biocontrol Agents against Popillia japonica (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) in Northern Italy
The natural presence of entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) has been investigated in the Piedmont region (Northern Italy) in areas infested by the Japanese beetle Popillia japonica, and results showed that larval mortality was higher for pre-wintering larvae than post- wintering ones.
Novelties in Pest Control by Entomopathogenic and Mollusc- Parasitic Nematodes
This chapter summarises the current knowledge of the diversity of the nematodes and reviews the recent advances in production, storage, application techniques genetic improvement and safety of these organisms.
Efficacy of entomopathogenic nematode, Steinernema carpocapsae against the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) in laboratory condition
In vitro studies were carried out on the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella larvae using an insect entomopathogenic nematode isolate, Steinernema carpocapsae obtained from the Koppert company, the Netherlands, and interaction between IJ and ET were significant.
Entomopathogenic Nematodes in the Czech Republic: Diversity, Occurrence and Habitat Preferences
This short overview will focus on the most important advances in EPN research provided by investigations in the Czech Republic.
Occurrence of entomopathogenic nematodes (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae) in Meghalaya, NE India
In the present study, the entomopathogenic nematodes were recorded from 89 samples (5.37%) out of 1656 samples collected from 20 sites representing ecologically diverse types of habitats in
The impact of diseases and pathogens on insect population dynamics
The role of pathogens on the population dynamics of insects is explored and theoretical models are developed to illustrate the role of particular disease mediated processes in insect host–pathogen interactions.


Insect aggregations and entomopathogenic nematode occurrence
A survey for entomopathogenic nematodes from habitats characterized by these aggregations was performed in the Czech Republic by collecting soil samples and utilizing Galleria traps in the laboratory, finding Steinernematids recovered from 61 of 87 sampled localities.
Survey of entomopathogenic nematodes from the families Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae (Nematoda: Rhabditida) in the Czech Republic
Soil samples were collected from the whole territory of the Czech Republic, and the presence of entomopathogenic nematodes from the families Steinernematidae and Heterorhabditidae was evaluated by
The Natural Host Range of Steinernema and Heterorhabditis spp. and Their Impact on Insect Populations
Based on current knowledge, nematode reproduction strategies are discussed and indications of the risk involved in the release of non-indigenous nematodes are given.
Neoaplectana intermedia n. sp. (Steinernematidae : Nematoda) from South Carolina
Morphological, hybridization and DNA studies support the distinctness of N. intennedia n.
