PAKISTAN SOCIETY OF NEMATOLOGISTS
(HISTORICAL BACKGROUND)

Today after nearly 30 years, it is a great pleasure to recall the good old times. Whenever we talk about Pakistan Society of Nematologists we have to recall the establishment of National Nematological Research Centre. As you all are aware that the National Nematological Research Centre was founded by Dr. M.A. Maqbool in 1974. In the year 1977 the centre organized its “First National Nematological Seminar-Cum-Workshop on Nematodes Problem in Agricultural Crops in Pakistan” held on 10-12, August at Karachi University. Considering the importance of the subject, the Nematologists/scientists also attended the seminar-cum workshop proposed to form an association in the name of “Pakistan Society of Nematologists”. Twenty three (23) scientists mostly related to Nematology from 12 different institutions/universities in a meeting convened in August, 1977 signed the proposal to establish the Pakistan Society of Nematologists with a view to promote this important field of biological sciences. The untiring efforts of Dr. M.A. Maqbool led to the formation of the society in 1980. Dr. M.A. Maqbool became the second President of this society from 1999-2001 and under his dynamic leadership society has made tremendous contributions. Due to his long experience at international level and his continued interest with different organizations conducting research in agriculture in general and Plant Nematology in particular has a blessing for all of us.
