In Scots pine, grass or fallow plots most Rotylenchus robustus were in the top 20 cm of soil and distributed in accordance with the host's roots. No statistically significant seasonal fluctuations in nematode numbers were observed. The annual rate of increase was greatest in plots with initially low numbers and in those growing grass. The final equilibrium population density was much greater on grass than on Scots pine ( > 500 nematodes/200 g soil compared with < 200 nematodes/200 g soil). Density-dependent factors probably limited the size of the final populations and of these factors intraspecific competition for the limited food supply was possibly the most important.
