About Caenorhabditis brenneri

Caenorhabditis brenneri is a small, free-living round worm found in decaying plant material throughout the tropics. The worms feed on the bacteria and other micro-organisms associated with plant decay. The biology of C. brenneri is similar to that of C. elegans with a short generation time through four larval stages into an adult. C.brenneri has both male and female adults, unlike the hermaphroditic species such as C. elegans and C. briggsae.
