Carbon dioxide had little effect on the rate of hatch of Aphelenchoides composticola and Ditylenchus myceliophagus at concentrations less than 10%. Carbon dioxide decreased hatch independently of oxygen when oxygen was not limiting. A low concentration (0.03 %) of carbon dioxide did not stimulate the hatch of either nematode in the presence of 21 % oxygen. The development of A. composticola and D. myceliophagus was reduced at concentrations of carbon dioxide greater than about 5 % and 12 %, respectively. The eggs of A. composticola, unlike those of D. myceliophagus, are more resistant to CO2 than subsequent stages. If soil aeration is limiting for the hatch and development of these nematodes, then O2 rather than CO2, is likely to be the more significant factor.
