The neutral lipid reserves of newly-formed juveniles from field and pot-grown populations of Globodera pallida and G. rostochiensis have been studied using a quantitative histochemical technique based on scanning microdensitometry. Significant differences occurred between the mean neutral lipid content of newly-formed juveniles of G. pallida that were not related to the fecundity of the females. Pot experiments for G. rostochiensis confirmed that the proportion and fecundity of females did not influence the neutral lipid content of the juveniles. The lipid reserves were maintained within close limits and the level was similar to that of juveniles of the parental generation. This shows that intraspecific competition between females does not result in a reduced neutral lipid content of their progeny which may impair the subsequent survival and potential infectivity of the unhatched juveniles.
