Abstract

Twenty nematode species in the Criconematidae and Paratylenchidae were found in 242 soil samples collected in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State during 1974-1979. The most species occurred in the hemlock-hardwood forests. Few species, mainly Nothocrionema sphagni and Crossonema menzeli, occurred in the spruce-fir zone. Nematode diversity (H') was inversely related to altitude when all samples were considered. When nematode diversity was analyzed with samples around conifers and nonconifers separately, there was no relationship of H' with altitude around conifers, but there was a negative relationship with nonconifers.
