| Society of Nematologists
Society of the IFNS
Society of Nematologists (SON) was initiated in 1961. The
first national meeting was held in Corvallis, Oregon, in
1962 with a subsequent meeting held each year in the USA
or Canada. The constitution of the Society specifies its
aims and goals. The purpose of the Society of Nematologists
is the advancement of the science of nematodes (mostly microscopic roundworms). To serve this
purpose, the Society acts as an agency for the exchange
of information, holds regular meetings, and promotes and
extends knowledge in all areas of nematology.
The Society is operated on a nonprofit basis exclusively
to advance these educational and scientific purposes for
the science of nematology.
