Phylum Nematoda: trends in species descriptions, the documentation of diversity, systematics, and the species concept

Nematode & Insect Biosecurity, National Research Collections Australia, CSIRO GPO Box 1700 Canberra ACT 2601 Australia.
Nematoda species concept species descriptions


This paper summarizes the trends in nematode species description and systematics emerging from a comparison of the latest comprehensive classification and census of Phylum Nematoda (Hodda 2022a, b) with earlier classifications (listed in Hodda 2007).   It also offers some general observations on trends in nematode systematics emerging from the review of the voluminous literature used to produce the classification.   The trends in nematodes can be compared with developments in the systematics of other organisms to shed light on many of the general issues confronting systematists now and into the future.
