About IFNS

A Global Communications Forum
The Federation aims to foster communication among nematologists worldwide, through national and regional nematology societies. It also aims to enhance overall awareness of nematodes and the science of nematology. A key element in this is facilitating and promoting information exchange, e.g. through the International Congress of Nematology that occurs at six year intervals.
