Methods to monitor growth and activity of nematode-trapping fungi in soil

Methods to monitor growth and activity of nematode-trapping fungi in soil

Bulletin OILB/SROP 24(1): 65-68

To use nematode-trapping fungi for the biological control of plant parasitic nematodes, further knowledge on their ecology in soil is necessary. Especially, ways to quantify their activity in soil are required.
