Abstract:

Two populations of Panagrolaimus rigidus (Schneider 1866) Thorne 1937, of different origin were investigated. Population growth was found to be affected by 30°C temperature and high soil moisture (100% of maximum soil water capacity). Agar culture nematodes appeared to be more stenobiotic, and more strongly reacting to adverse environmental conditions than soil culture nematodes. This was indicated by the numbers and age distribution of both populations cultured under different temperature and moisture conditions. Soil culture nematodes colonized the soil medium more abundantly than the agar culture nematodes did. The latter, however, were found to be more abundant in decomposing seed grain.
