The Entomological Society of America (ESA) recently launched the Entomology Today Blog, a project designed to highlight news stories about insects and related arthropods, cover meetings and events from entomological societies, and to provide a venue for entomologists to share their research and discoveries online.
The new blog is meant for insect hobbyists, entomology students, pest management professionals, researchers, teachers, scientists, and anyone else who shares a fascination for insects.
While much of the content will include insect stories appearing as items in the news media, and by news from entomological societies and other scientific organizations, entomologists and science writers are also encouraged to submit articles and videos for the Features section. Writers who have articles or ideas should contact the blog editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Content can range from experiences at entomology meetings, interesting research conducted in the lab or the field, experiences or observations from extension entomologists, or anything else that may be of interest to Entomology Today readers.
The Entomology Today blog also includes a list of available job opportunities for entomology-related positions. The Entomology Today Blog can be accessed at http://www.
"Our intent with Entomology Today is to create a central source for sharing all news related to entomology on a global basis," said C. David Gammel, CAE, ESA's Executive Director. "It's a long-term goal, but one that we will achieve through the support and participation of entomologists around the world."
The Entomological Society of America is the largest organization in the world serving the professional and scientific needs of entomologists and people in related disciplines. Founded in 1889, ESA today has more than 6,500 members affiliated with educational institutions, health agencies, private industry, and government. Members are researchers, teachers, extension service personnel, administrators, marketing representatives, research technicians, consultants, students, and hobbyists.
