This book provides an in-depth review of coffee-parasitic nematodes, which in some regions of the world have decimated plantations since late nineteenth century. Throughout its 17 chapters, written by specialists from many research institutions worldwide, this book reviews key aspects of this subject, such as taxonomy of coffee-parasitic Meloidogyne and Pratylenchus species, nematode management, interference of nematodes on coffee physiology, breeding for nematode-resistance and prospects of development of nematode-resistant transgenic coffees. Some chapters present in detail the nematode problems faced by coffee growers in all major producing countries or regions - such as Brazil, Colombia, Vietnam and Central America - and discuss the achievements of those countries´ nematologists towards minimizing yield losses.
