PMN Welcomes the Society
of Nematologists

PMN welcomes the Society of Nematologists (SON) as its newest partner. SON is an international organization formed to advance the science of nematology in both its fundamental and economic aspects. Nematodes are the most abundant multicellular animals on earth and occur literally everywhere: in soil and decaying matter, in all forms of plant life, and in the bodies of almost all animals. Through its partnership, SON joins 15 other prominent scientific societies and nonprofits involved with the Plant Management Network. Partner societies gain visibility throughout the PMN website and provide a 15% subscription discount to their members.
