What's New in Nemaplex?

Revised: 10/24/2022

2022 - Continued gradual expension of Nemaplex beyond soil and plant nematodes to include all Families and many Genera and species.  But I am realizing that if a project is going to take a lifetime of work, it would be better to start earlier in your lifetime than later!  However, check out Index to Nematode families.

2021 - October- Nemaplex reconstructed and reconfigured after failure and replacement of two hard drives on the Nemaplex server.

2021 NINJA, the calculator of Nematode Ecophysiology Parameters moved to a server at Wageningen University, with the url: https://shiny.wur.nl/ninja.  Dr. Sara Sanchez-Moreno (sarasm@inia.es) Department of the Environment and Agronomy, National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology, Madrid, Spain is the current co-ordinator of NINJA updates.

2020 Continued addition of species, genera and family pages to Nermaplex, continued update of Host Status and Ecophysiology databases

2019 Separated Merliniidae and Telotylenchidae from Dolichodoridae with consistent changes in Nemabase and the Ecophysiology Databases

2019 Adding to Nemabase Host Range database from international sources

2019 Working full time on Nemaplex, expanding the taxonomic framework of Families, Genera and Species

2018 More extensive updates of Nemabase Host Range (>57,800 records) and Ecophysiology Databases (>4300 records).  Many thanks to James Mehl for supplying South African Host Status data. - 2018

2018 Removal of old-version Genus and species files to improve Google seach for a Genus and species - 2018

2018 Extensive updates of Nemabase Host Range and Ecophysiology Databases: Links from all species and genus pages to host range and ecophysiology parameters - 2018

2017 Migration of Nemaplex to a new server to facilitate the Sql database options and to enhance security - 2017

2017 New Dropdown Main Menu design launched - 2017

2017 Nemabase and Ecophysiological Parameter databases converted from Access to Sql databases.  All nematode species and genera pages converted to .aspx format which allows direct interaction with the databases - 2017
