Living nematodes induced trap formation in Arthrobotrys oligospora more rapidly than did additions of morphogenetic peptides. In nematode-induced morphogenesis, excreted substances as peptides and amino acids were only partly responsible for the effect. Additional effects were due to volatile substances from nematodes or to direct contact between living nematodes and the hyphae. Ammonia was shown by gas chromatography to be excreted in nematode suspensions in amounts that could affect trap formation. It is proposed that living nematodes act primarily through another mechanism than peptide-induced morphogenesis.
