The Kansas Entomological Society
The Central States Entomological Society
The Society goes by both of the above names.
It provides a forum for entomologists and welcomes as members all persons interested in insects or other terrestrial arthropods, their ecology, behavior, systematics, physiology, control, conservation, etc.
was established in 1928, and produces a quarterly publication, the Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society that contains papers by local authors as well as by persons from many other parts of the world.
The Society holds annual meetings in Kansas or nearby states, at which students as well as established entomologists present results of their research or reviews of topics of interest. There are no concurrent sessions! Thus interactions among individuals and their diverse disciplines are fostered.
The 152nd Kansas Academy of Science and the 96th Kansas Entomological Society joint annual meeting has been canceled due to the risks of the Covid-19 pandemic.
After much deliberation, the Kansas Academy of Science Executive Council has decided to cancel the 2020 KAS Annual Meeting, scheduled to have occurred on April 3-4 at Baker University. Given the rapid spread of the COVID-19 corona virus, projections regarding what is expected in the coming weeks, and the general feeling to avoid gatherings, we decided it was prudent to cancel the meeting. It is sad to have to do so, but this seems to be in the best interest of the people involved.
