Four plants, Cyperus ochraceus, Eriocaulon compressum, Lythrum alatum, and Xyris jupicai, growing along the shoreline of an oligotrophic lake in north central Florida were sampled for nematodes. The nematodes recovered were placed in four trophic groups: bacterivores, herbivores, omnivores, and predators. When the nematodes on all plants were considered, 27% were bacterivores, 23% were herbivores, 7% were omnivores, and 43% were predators. Tripyla was the dominant predator and the dominant…

Soil Nematode Assemblages in Natural European Peatlands of the Horná Orava Protected Landscape Area, Slovakia

The ecological indices indicated that the native ecosystems studied were relatively mature and stable, with a B/F ratio indicating a prevalence of bacterial decomposition pathways corresponding to high values of the NCR index.



Feeding habits in soil nematode families and genera-an outline for soil ecologists.

Because research on nematode involvement in trophic interactions, foodweb structure, and biodiversity is constrained by lack of an overview of nematode feeding habits, this outline presents a

A Rapid Method for the Transfer of Nematodes From Fixative To Anhydrous Glycerin

Eine Methode wird beschrieben bei der Nematoden innerhalb 24 Stunden von der Fixierungsflussigkeit in wasserfreies Glyzerin uberfuhrt werden, der Aethanol in diesem Gemisch wird durch Wasserentzug im Exsiccator mit AETHanol 96% konzentriert.

In einem Kalkbuchenwald wurden 65 Nematodenarten festgestellt, das das Artenspektrum infolge zunehmender Versauerung verandert wird zeigten sich meist deutlichere Abhangigkeiten von der Vegetation.
