The effect of seven temperatures between 10 and 30° C was studied on the shortest time required for hatching, development to egg-laying females, and completion of one generation using Aphelenchus avenae, Neotylenchus lin f ordi, Paraphelenchusacontioides, and two isolates of a species of Ditylenchus. Minimum time required for the first egg to hatch and the first larva to develop to an egg-laying female in any one of the replicates was used as the criterion for assessing the effect of temperature on hatching and duration of life cycle. Time necessary for each process decreased as temperature increased until a minimum was reached above which the time required again increased or the temperature was lethal. The shortest generation times were at 25° for N. linfordi, 30° for the two isolates of Ditylenchus sp., and 35° for A. avenae and P. acontioides. No development occurred at 39° for any species, and although hatching occurred at 10°, in no case was the life cycle completed during the course of the experiment.
