I like working in taxonomy, this field is being neglected by most scientists and there is need of it

I am working in entomopathogenic nematology, tiny creatures residing in soil habitat and have peculiar feature of acting as bio-control agents. Most developed countries have used them against insect pests hampering agricultural productivity and have achieved success against many pests. India, little work has been been done and till now only 10 species reported . There is need of taxonomists and I am interested on EPNs to solve the hurdles faced by our cultivars using indigenous species/strains.
