Life cycle analysis data of the free-living, bacterial-feeding Panagrolaimus sp. strain NFS 24-5 were assessed at different temperatures using a hanging drop method with single male and female individuals and a food density of 3 × 109 Escherichia coli cells ml−1. Lifespan at the moment when the first egg was laid was 5.7 days at 21°C and 4 days at 25, 27 and 29°C. The intrinsic rate of natural increase (rm) was 0.53 at 21°C, 0.81 at 25°C, 0.93 at 27°C and 0.81 at 29°C, corresponding to population doubling times (PDT=ln2∕rm) of 1.3, 0.9, 0.7 and 0.9 days, respectively. Over 200 offspring per female were produced at 27°C. All other temperatures yielded fewer offspring. When females were kept without males, the life span was 49 days, whereas the last reproductive female (hanging drop with male individual) died after 16.5 days. These data will contribute to the interpretation of nematode population dynamics recorded in liquid culture.
