Quantitative analysis was made of a nematode community in the afforested dunes of the Kampinos Forest, taking the trophic groups of nematodes into consideration. This analysis was carried out in a successional sequence of dune working stations, from a dune with very scanty vegetation cover and low humus contents in the soil to a dune covered by an old tree stand, with dense vegetation coverand soil richer in humus. The nematode population there was described by means of both their numbers and the state of their biomass. The seasonal variations in numbers and state of biomass were analysed in respect of the whole community and the various ecological groups. The influence exerted by the plant succession of the afforested dunes on quantitative relations between trophic groups of nematodes was determined. Calculation was made of respiratory metabolism of the nematode community on the basis of oxygen consumption measurements made by Overgaard Nielsen (1949).
