White clover grown in pots of low or high fertility soil was inoculated with Heterodera trifolii, pulse-labelled with 14C and after 14 days the distribution of 14C was investigated. In the presence of many H. trifolii, soil fertility did not affect the root/shoot distribution of 14C. With few H. trifolii in high-fertility soil, there was significantly less 14C translocation to the roots. The 14C content per pot of the microbial biomass carbon was significantly greater in those pots with many H. trifolii at both soil fertility levels. Not only was there a significant increase in the size of the microbial biomass in pots with many nematodes but also the micro-organisms had a greater 14C concentration. This may indicate increased nutrient cycling in pots with plants infected by H. trifolii.
