Methods were designed to detect attraction and repulsion of nematodes by fungi and determine the attraction intensity of different fungi. Of 23 fungi tested, 15 attracted the bacteria-feeding nematode Panagrellus redivivus. Of the 14 nematophagous fungi tested, ten attracted and one repelled nematodes, whereas three were neutral. Among nine non-nematophagous fungi, five attracted nematodes. In general, the attraction intensity increased with increasing dependence of the fungi on nematodes for nutrients.
