Granular aldrin was applied around loblolly pine seedlings planted in pots of sterile soil. Significant decreases in numbers of nematodes and increases in mycorrhizal growth were associated with increase in aldrin level. There was no relationship between seedling growth and aldrin level except that dry weight of seedlings decreased with increasing aldrin level. Forest Sci. 18:319-320
