Native Iowa prairies contained a plant parasitic nematode population which differed markedly in predominant species from populations in cultivated fields. Nematode species and their abundance varied among the five prairies sampled. Aorolaimus was common in most prairies, but is not known in Iowa cultivated soils. Tylenchorhynchus maximus was common in the Kalsow and Sheeder prairies, but was not found in the Cayler and Hayden prairies. Helicotylenchus was common in all prairies, but the species were unevenly distributed.
