Japanese Nematological Society
Member Society of the IFNS
The Japanese Nematological society (JNS) was formed in 1971. It was affiliated with the Japanese Society of Applied Entomology and Zoology (AEZ) until it became an independent organization in 1993. Prior to 1993, the membership comprised agricultural and forestry nematologists. After 1993, membership was broadened to include marine nematologists, C. elegans researchers, and animal parasitologists.
The objectives of the JNS are to integrate nematology with parasitology and basic biology as well as environmental and agricultural sciences. At present, the society is one of the constituent societies of the Science Council of Japan.
