12.1 Introduction

Interactions between nematodes and other organisms are one component of the vast ecological network of biotic and abiotic interactions with plants. Quantifying the effect of each component alone is not easy and multiple components (‘determinants’) present larger challenges

(Wallace, 1978, 1989). Complex interactions between plant-parasitic nematodes and other pathogenic organisms generate uncertainties in our abilities to predict host damage. The lack of comprehension of the mechanisms of these interactions and under- or overestimation of damage and economic thresholds impede the development and implementation of management strategies.

6.1 Introduction

Nematode population dynamics and damage thresholds are applied aspects of population ecology. The domain of population ecology had its origins in the works of Lotka (1925) and

Volterra (1926), leading to the contributions of  Lack (1954) and Huffaker (1958). With the publication of Odum’s Fundamentals of Ecology

(1959), the basic principles and concepts pertaining to organization at the species population level were established. Currently, population ecology is a vibrant discipline, essential for developing a true understanding of how ecosystems work (Rockwood, 2015). It involves how a definable group of individuals of a single species interact with the biotic and abiotic attributes of their environment.

The International Plant Protection Convention

(IPPC) was founded on 6 December 1951 at the

6th Conference of the Food and Agriculture

­Organization of the United Nations (FAO-UN). Its mission is ‘to secure cooperation among nations in protecting global plant resources from the spread and introduction of pests of plants, in order to preserve food security, biodiversity and to facilitate trade’ (www.ippc.int). To consolidate the objectives of the IPPC, National Plant Protection

Organizations (NPPOs) were initiated or further fortified. These organizations developed their own plant health regulations in agreement with the principles of the World Trade Organizations
