Most species are hermaphrodites, except the schistosomes in holdfast which the sexes are separate. Tape worms are cestodes, dorsoventrally flattened parasites. Generally the adults inhabits the intestines of their hosts, being anchored to the intestinal wall by means of type-specific organs. Nematoda is a phylum of invertebrate animals not closely related to each other, but with certain common characteristics. For instance, cylindrical unsegmented bodies; acoelomate structure; a gut composed of mouth, pharynx and an intestinal tube. Members of the phylum include round worms, threadworms and hookworms. Many nematodes are free-living in soil and water.
