Bacterial-feeding nematodes constitute one of the primary grazers of soil bacteria. We investigated the effects of selective grazing of a representative nematode (Zeldia punctata, Cephalobidae) on nematode life history and population biology and on the soil microbial community. Firstly, we measured (i) the effect of five different bacterial strains on the nematode life cycle using petri dishes and (ii) the impact of bacterial inoculation on nematode population growth in a soil microcosm… CONTINUE READING
