The living strategy of nematophagous fungi nematodes

  title={The living strategy of nematophagous fungi nematodes},
  author={Xingzhong Liu and Meichun Xiang},
The infection structures, trophism, and ecological character of nematophagous fungi are reviewed in this article on the basis of data extracted from the literature and the most recent experiments conducted in this area. Traditionally, nematophagous fungi are classifi ed into four groups according to their modes of attacking nematodes: nematode-trapping fungi using adhesive or mechanical hyphal traps, endoparasitic fungi using their spores, eggparasitic fungi invading nematode eggs or females… CONTINUE READING
