Welcome to the
Entomopathogenic Nematode Bibliography Database
This database was first published as a Southern Cooperative Bulletin in 1992. It
contained 1,412 citations. This new electronic edition now contains over 3,100 citations!
The database lists citations for Steinernema and Heterorhabditis spp.
nematodes and their symbiotic bacteria. Citations come from journals, periodicals,
chapters, series, books, thesis, patents, and important abstracts from various
All citations have been reviewed and assigned to one or more of 140+ keywords. Please
see the separate drop-down menu for a listing of all keywords. Use these keywords when
searching, it will make locating appropriate citations much easier. You can also search by
author, year, reference type, or any word. About 60% of the citations contain abstracts.
I hope you enjoy using this bibliography. I will update this database every three
months and ask your help in one matter. I have endeavored to make this bibliography as
complete as possible, but mistakes occur. If you happen to notice errors or an omission of
an important paper, please notify me. When you are searching for various papers, please
search for the two keywords HELP and INCOMPLETE. INCOMPLETE
citations are citations missing some information I am not able to locate, such as volume
number, number of pages, city of publication, etc. If you have this information, please
notify me. HELP citations are those I have not yet
seen and therefore could not provide an accurate keyword indexing. If you have these
citations, please forward a copy to me.
Finally, it would be a tremendous help if you would send me reprints of your personal
entomopathogenic nematode papers. This will make my efforts of updating the bibliography
