Abstract The Community Biodiversity Strategy of the European Commission provides a framework for the development of Community policies and instruments to comply with the Convention of Biological Diversity. Fauna Europaea contributes by identifying and cataloging components of European biodiversity to serve as a basic tool for science and conservation policies. Fauna Europaea will assemble a database of scienti¿ c names and distribution of all living multicellular European land and fresh-water animals, including nematodes. Marine nematodes are included in a ‘sister’ project, the European Register of Marine Species (ERMS). In anticipation of a Key to the European Nematodes, the basal species list (Nematoden van Nederland) was extended to include the whole of Europe. Currently, the nematode database includes a total of 2500 species, including the full name, author, date, original genus, main synonyms and geographic distribution. Classi¿ cation is based on the most recent, generally accepted standards. Published records or personal communications for material deposited and available in a public nematode collection must support database entries. Geographic information will be provided for each species according to ISO-TDWG standards; the reporting region will include Europe, Macaronesian islands, Cyprus, Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya. Species recorded from non-¿ eld locations including glasshouses and aquariums will not be included.
