ESN is a member of the International Federation of Nematology Societies (IFNS). Their web page can be found at: http://www.ifns.org/
Association of Applied Biologists (AAB)
A society that organises meetings and publications in all areas of Applied Biology, including Nematology. The AAB organises a one-day Nematology meeting each year, usually held in London in December. A link to the AAB website can be found here.
Pensoft is a publishing company based in Bulgaria & Russia which publishes books in Biological Sciences. They have recently published "An Anecdotal History of Nematology" (J.M Webster, K.B. Eriksson & D.G. McNamara Eds) with the support of ESN members, to accompany the 2006 ESN meeting in Bulgaria. The Pensoft Publishers website can be found here.

SCRI Nematology group
People: J. Jones. V. Blok
PPP Programme, SCRI, Invergowrie, Dundee, DD2 5DA
The SCRI Nematology group aims to understand the molecular basis of plant-nematode interactions, using genomics approaches to understand avirulence and the susceptible response. The website of the SCRI group can be accessed here.
UGent Nematology Unit
The UGent Nematology research group has more than 80 years of experience in nematological research. Currently we focus on taxonomy, phylogeny, morphology, and biology of nematodes from natural and agricultural ecosystems, including free-living, plant-parasitic, virus-vector, facultatively parasitic, and entomopathogenic nematodes. Focusing from the backbone of nematode phylogeny to species delineation, we integrate a tradition of light-microscopy and ultrastructural morphology with molecular approaches
