Tracks of the plant-parasitic nematode, Meloidogyne incognita incognita, were obtained on a nutrient 2% agar medium from which free surface water had been allowed to evaporate. Under the experimental conditions used there was no apparent polarity of the tracks toward actively growing tomato roots or seedlings. The larvae apparently made contact with the roots by random and constant movement. Larvae moving forward were unaffected by their own or other nematode tracks; in moving backward for short distances they followed the original tracks made when moving forward. The track of an adult male was also obtained.
