  • Few data are available on population genetic structure in nematode species, and little of the available data allows direct comparison of the genetic structures of species having different life cycles. Here we use mtDNA sequence data to describe the genetic structure of a heterorhabditid nematode, and compare results to published data on other nematode species. Heterorhabditis marelatus is a parasite of soil-dwelling insects. Its life cycle and local ecology should result in small effective… CONTINUE READING
