Plant Nematology

The course is intended to provide a detailed understanding of basic and applied nematology and the issues associated with current production systems and control strategies. Having completed the taught part of the course students will be able to identify genera of plant parasitic nematodes associated with crop damage in a range of geographical locations. The course focuses on producing integrated management solutions that meet the requirements of sustainable crop production. Students also learn how to disseminate issues and ideas relating to nematode control to a range of audiences using various methods of communication.

Assessment methods

The research project for the programme allows students to test hypotheses relevant to pure and applied nematology research by designing, carrying out, analysing and interpreting experiments. Students also learn to evaluate and interpret data and draw relevant conclusions from existing nematology studies.
