Nematodes

The phylum “nematodes” (also known as roundworms) comprises more than 20,000 different species of animals. According to an estimate they account for about 81 percent of all animal organisms. Nematodes are mostly small, white to colorless threadworms that prefer a moist habitat. Many parasitic groups, including some human pathogenic species, belong to this phylum.
