Experiments conducted in enclosed glass vials whose relative humidities were held constant with glycerol solutions, indicated that the survival of Aphelenchoides besseyi Christie is inversely related to the extent and rate of dehydration. Though gravimetric determinations detected no difference in the extents and rates of desiccation, the nematodes in larger aggregates were found to survive better than those in the smaller ones. Dry weights of the adult nematodes decreased significantly with the age of culture two weeks after nematode inoculation, apparently due to the exhaustion of the host mycelia, Aureobasidium pullulans. The starvation adversely affected the ability of the nematode to survive dehydration. Larvae and adults of the nematode were found equally capable of withstanding desiccation.
