All stages in the process of infection of Meloidogyne javanica by Bacillus penetrans were favoured by temperatures which were optimum for the nematode. B. penetrans spores attached more readily to nematodes at 22.5-30° than at 15°. The parasite also developed more quickly as temperatures increased, completing its life cycle in 85-100 days at 20° and in only 20-30 days at 30°. At 30°C the parasite proliferated extensively through females before they reached maturity; at 20° females often developed ovaries containing eggs before infection prevented further development.
