Abstract:
Since the 1930s, the Nematology research unit has developed experience in nematological research, especially in taxonomy, morphology and phylogeny. Currently, the group focuses on the taxonomy, phylogeny, morphology and biology of nematodes from natural and agricultural ecosystems including free-living, plant-parasitic, virus-vector families and entomopathogenic nematodes.

Research is conducted on marine and brackish free-living nematode taxa with a focus on the taxonomy, phylogeny and morphology of Desmoscolecida, Epsilonematidae and Draconematidae.
