This book contains full descriptions of the pin, citrus and other, related nematodes (166 species), belonging to the family Tylenchulidae (Tylenchida/Tylenchomorpha), reported from everywhere in the world.

This book is amply illustrated with line drawings, light and SEM photographs based on microscopic and sub-microscopic observations.
