Maturity index values reflect life history characteristics often inferred by morphology. We tested the hypothesis that Acrobeloides and Aphelenchus are sensitive to chemical pollutants, opposite of what their colonizer-persister (CP) value of 2 suggests. Acrobeloides and Aphelenchus were reared at 19 degrees C and provided diets of Escherichia coli and Rhizoctonia solani, respectively. LC50 values for Aphelenchus exposed to copper or benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) are greater than Acrobeloides. Copper… CONTINUE READING
