This volume is a republication in one volume of the 10 part CIH Keys to the Nematode Parasites of Vertebrates, first published between 1974 and 1983. For many years the Keys have provided a working tool to those within the field and laboratory needing to know "what is this worm?"

Now due to popular demand and to coincide with the long awaited publication of the supplement volume, the Keys will be presented as one volume, refreshed and reformatted with the additional convenience of reordering in to superfamily. As an indispensable guide the Keys shall continue to be an essential resource to those working within medical, veterinary and biological departments worldwide for many more years to come.

"Therefore, the publication of this supplementary volume of the Keys is very important and this excellent book, together with the archival volume of the Keys, no doubt represents one of the basic works on parasitic nematodes of vertebrates, which may also serve as a basis for subsequent revisions of taxonomy as well as for studies on the biology, ecology, zoogeography, etc. of these parasites. This will certainly be appreciated as an important source of information and an indispensable aid for the determination of nematodes not only by parasitologists, but also interested physicians, veterinarians, zoologists, wildlife and fisheries biologists, university students and others. The author, editors and the publishers are to be congratulated on this publication."

"...for all scientists working with parasites of vertebrates, the Archival Volume and the Supplementary Volume will be the ultimate reference books and the presence of both should be obligatory in their libraries."
