The effect of culture age, temperature and anaerobiosis on inhibition of respiration by cyanide, the nematicide EDB, and other respiratory inhibitors was studied in three isolates of Aphelenchus avenae. Two isolates differed in their responses to cyanide, the nematicide, temperature and to hyperbaric oxygen. Respiration in isolate F was strongly inhibited by cyanide but the depression of respiration in isolate M following prolonged incubation at 30°C was partly relieved by cyanide. Isolate F respiration was inhibited by EDB whereas "young" cultures of isolate M showed respiratory stimulation. Salicyl hydroxamic acid (SHAM), carbon monoxide, and p-chloromercuribenzoate had similar effects on both isolates. These results provide preliminary evidence for the existence of several respiratory pathways which differ in significance in isolates of A. avenae.
