Dr. Diana H. Wall's
Lab: Soil Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning
website at http://www.nrel.colostate.edu/projects/soil/
is run by the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at the
Colorado State University, USA.
Plant and Insect Parasitic Nematodes
This website at
includes information on all aspects of nematode biology
with a special emphasis on nematode ecology and taxonomy.
N. A. Cobb Foundation
The Nathan A. Cobb Nematology
provides all nematologists the opportunity to build self-sustaining
endowments for the advancement of nematology. The endowments
are used to support important nematology projects that are
beyond the normal resources of the Society of Nematologists.
USDA Nematode Collection (USDANC) Database
Donna Ellington and Zafar A. Handoo of the
USDA-ARS Nematology Laboratory (Beltsville, MD, USA) have
developed and now maintain a website hosting the United
States Department of Agriculture Nematode Collection (USDANC)
Database. This database contains over 19,000 records
representing 555 nematode genera and 1,670 nematode species
on 800 plant host species. Individual collectors number
3,000, and the collection includes samples gathered from
180 countries. In addition, 180 insect hosts are represented
by specimens in the collection.
George Bird and Bill Mai have developed a
website of historical
data relating to the Science of Plant Nematology.
Historical information was obtained from retired Plant Nematologists
(including themselves) and from the records of the major
CONSORTIUM FOR INTERNATIONAL CROP
for International Crop Protection (CICP), working for a
quarter of a century to implement effective and environmentally-sensitive
crop protection worldwide, welcomes visitors to its revamped
website and invites usage of all of the free resources offered.

You can access this 177-page publication
by Panesar and Marshall, 2003, via this link: http://www.royalroads.net/nematodes
If you need to look up a journal title, check an abstract
etc. this site is useful, containing links to loads of journals:
If you have a problem with a plant name then the first
reference source should be the GRIN
database of the USDA-ARS. On the front page of this
site you will find a heading 'General Queries of Grin Taxonomy:',
with an option entitled: 'Form-based queries of species
data'. Click on this 'hot-spot' to be taken to a form which
you can use to make your query.
Enzyme names for use in papers can be standardized using
(the Enzyme nomenclature database). ENZYME (Release 24.0,
January 1999, and updates up to 16 March 1999) totals 3704
entries. It is primarily based on the recommendations of
the Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) and describes
each type of characterized enzyme for which an EC (Enzyme
Commission) number has been provided. Notes on how to use
this site are provided on the front page by clicking on
the hot-spot 'ENZYME user manual' under 'Documents'.
