The Russian Society of Nematologists

The Russian Society of Nematologists is a global organization of 14 affiliated societies. The Russian Society of Nematologists was established in 1994 during the Third International Nematology Congress (in Guadeloupe). That Congress and two earlier International Nematology Congresses (1984, 1990) were sponsored jointly by three societies: the European Society of Nematologists, the Organization of Nematologists of Tropical America, and the Society of Nematologists. This website provides information on nematodes and the science of nematology, the affiliated nematology societies, and the next International Congress of Nematology. The site also provides various services to nematologists, mostly as a global node from which to post and exchange information. The purpose of this website is to enhance the international community's awareness of the science of nematology and to provide various services to nematologists, mostly as a global node from which to post and exchange information. They are among the most harmful organisms of crops, especially in the tropics, but they are also very promising as natural antagonists that can be used in bio-control programmes against pest insects. Because of their ubiquitous presence, overwhelming densities and diversity (sometimes compared to insects) free-living nematodes are an ideal tool for biodiversity studies.They are used as bio-indicators of pollution in both terrestrial and aquatic environments. Nematode species such as Caenorhabditis elegans are also used as model organisms for investigating diverse biological processes.They have short generation times, are easy to culture and their genome size is small. Since it became apparent that they show remarkable similarity of genes with those in humans, they have been introduced in studies on aging and pathological processes found in humans.
