Soil and root inhabiting nematodes are becoming increasingly more important in our agricultural economy. At present little is known concerning their host ranges or other ecological relationships. The area surrounding the Jackson Hole Biological Laboratory is an excellent environment for making certain studies in this general field, especially those involving marked altitude and moisture changes within a relatively short distance. It is hoped that results obtained from these studies will supplement results obtained from laboratory, greenhouse, and field experiments being conducted on this same general subject at Cornell University. Project Number 91.
