The water content of Rotylenchus robustus (De Man), dried slowly at high humidity, is distinctly higher than those subjected to fast drying. Anaesthetised animals lose water at the same rate as active ones when dried under the same conditions, whereas those already dead before slow drying lose water as rapidly as live specimens dried quickly. Evidently it is only the living nematode that can, under certain conditions, control the loss of water. Compaction of the grooves between the body annulations as occurs when active and anaesthetised Rotylenchus are dried slowly, indicates a possible mechanism for the reduction of water loss in dry surroundings.
