The response of individual adult males of the potato cyst nematodes (PCN), Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida, to potato root diffusate (PRD) and to sex pheromones from adult females was investigated using electrophysiological techniques and behavioural bioassays. Males of both species responded to sex pheromones but PRD did not elicit any significant change in spike activity or movement. Males of PCN apparently require only sex pheromones to attract them towards the sessile females protruding from the root.
