Nematodes can be present in different matrices. This chapter describes several methods to extract nematodes from soil and plant parts. It is crucial that an appropriate method is chosen for the purpose of the research as different types of nematodes, and even different nematode stages, are extracted depending on the method. Factors to consider for choosing the optimal extraction method are the extraction efficiency of the method, the maximum sample size that can be analysed and costs of the extraction equipment. In addition, water consumption, labour and the time needed before nematodes can be examined can be important factors.
