Last featured in the 2-03-2017 Scout Report, Entomology Today continues to be an excellent source for entomology news and information about this profession. Since we last visited this resource, it has also added a section on Science Policy and Outreach.
Insects make up the most numerous and diverse forms of life on Earth. While not the most cuddly of creatures, they are essential to nearly every terrestrial and aquatic ecosystem. For more than 125 years, the Entomological Society of America (ESA) has served the professional and scientific needs of those interested in insects and their impact on the world's population. Here readers will find the official blog of the ESA, Entomology Today. Insect-related discoveries, news, and events are shared across four categories: Research News, The Entomology Profession, Amazing Insects, and Science Policy and Outreach. Readers will also find a link to the official website of the ESA, as well as a listing of Entomology Job Opportunities. The material here will be of interest to anyone, from students to researchers to hobbyists.
