This guide covers all aspects of entomology and nematology, including anatomy and physiology, behavior, biocontrol, diseases and parasitism, ecology, genetics, molecular biology, nutrition and feeding, reproduction, and taxonomy and systematics.
Below are key resources to get you started in locating entomological or nematological literature.
Comprehensive literature searching in Entomology & Nematology requires consulting a variety of resources which are listed in the Databases section below. Since entomology/nematology is comprised of many distinct areas, you should also explore Related Subject Guides.
Search BIOSIS Previews or Zoological Record for the basic biology on insects or nematodes including: anatomy and physiology, behavior, ecology, genetics, molecular biology, nutrition and feeding, reproduction, and taxonomy and systematics. NOTE: The UC Davis Bohart Entomology Library considers Zoological Record to be an essential database for taxonomy, systematics and new species records.
Search CAB Abstracts for insects or nematodes that are either beneficial to agriculture (e.g. pollinators) or are pests in agriculture including methods of biocontrol for these pests.
All life sciences subject databases will have taxonomic searching features available for searching by various taxa groups such as phyla or orders or families.
