The base threshold temperature for the development of a population of Meloidogyne hapla from a glasshouse in Finland was estimated as 8.25°. The thermal time requirement above this base for development from juvenile to the first juvenile of the second generation was about 553 day°. Two field populations from northern Europe had similar thermal requirements. In some experiments there was an indication that the rate of egg hatch had slowed at the lowest temperature used (17°), possibly because of a slight diapause. Tomato was a better host than cabbage, but the thermal requirements of the M. hapla were similar on both.
