SEMINAR: HOST AND PLANT TEMPERATURE EFFECTS ON NEMATODE DEVELOPMENT RATES AND NEMATODE ECOLOGY BY D. L. TRUDGILL Scottish Crop Research Institute, Invergowrie, Dundee DD2 5DA, Scotland Ferris (1993), in a colloquium paper, eloquently addressed many of the problems and prospects for research on nematode ecology. He questioned whether nematology was sufficiently involved in and interactive with mainstream ecology in other areas and suggested that nematology was relatively isolated. He further implied that too much of the work is observational, involves the gathering of facts and that the development and testing of hypotheses was being neglected. He stressed the need for the continued development of a theoretical basis from which to develop hypotheses. However, this is easier said than done as referees and journals are often not very sympathetic of papers which are short on facts and long on ideas. But, I suggest we often have a surfeit of the former and a shortage of the latter. It is evident that nematodes have enormous potential in ecological studies. They are relatively sedentary and therefore their population and species structure reflects both historical and current events; some species are strong "indicators" (e.g. host specific cyst nematode species; also species with
