These are related to the stability of the system producing the Bode plot. Remember that you have an oscillation condition if your gain is >=1 and you have 180 degrees of phase shift in your negative feedback leg. Gain and Phase margin are two measures of how stable your system is.

I now have a better understanding of the significance of the bode plot to a control system. Thanks for your post.
