Agriculture, Nematology and the Society of Nematologists, delves into the world of American agriculture, the importance of Nematology in agriculture and the vital role the Society of Nematologists played in enhancing agriculture and the science of Nematology. This 144 page book is bursting with fascinating research, insightful interviews and historic photographs. Originally slated to be a book dealing solely with the history of the Society of Nematologists, this book evolved into a history of agriculture, the science of Nematology as well as the history of the Society of Nematologists.
“Once research into the history of the Society of Nematologists began, it was discovered that the decisions which shaped the formation and direction of the Society were affected by the events that took place in Nematology and agriculture during specific decades from the 1950’s until the present. This book has given us the opportunity to examine trends and key events which occurred from the Society’s conception to the present in an attempt to capture the trials, joys and accomplishments of those who dreamt a dream that came to fruition in the embodiment of the Society of Nematologists.” -Preface Agriculture, Nematology and the Society of Nematologists
