Data from the literature were used to compute the relationship between egg and body volume for 463 species of soil and freshwater nematodes. The regression line was calculated. Departures from this line for each species are considered to be an "egg index". The index is negative for r-strategist and pollution indicator species and positive for K-strategist and clean habitat species. Results are given for average data for 35 genera and 4 suborders. Rhabditina and Diplogastrina have very negative egg indices. The meanings of the index are discussed.
