It would still be possible to distinguish the soil-covered parts of the earth, the streams, lakes and oceans, the insects, animals, birds, fishes, plants, and humans. So widespread and abundant are these netuas, largely parasitic or predaceous. That this imagined world of transparencies, most living things, the blanket of eoil on mountains, hills, and plains, and the Bodies of water would be indicated by clouds of these living which vary in length from a small fraction of an inch to several feet, and in diameter from that of the finest of hairs to the thickness of a lead pencil. AVIth this fanciful picture Dr. N. A Cobb, plant pathologist and nematolo- gist of the United States Department of Agriculture, one of the leading authorities of the world on nematodes, calls attention to the abundance of these organisms which are of untold economic importance to agriculture and to medicine. Certain species of them are responsible for crop diseases which cut our food-producing capacltj to an extent, which, if it could be measured, would be startling and discouraging. One species, the gall nema. attacks about five hundred different kinds plants, making galls or knots on the roots which frequently prevent the plant from producing a profitable crop.
