About the Society

The Central States Entomological Society
(The Kansas 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 and freshwater arthropods, in all aspects of their ecology, behavior, systematics, physiology, control, and conservation.

The Society was established in 1928 and produces a peer reviewed quarterly publication, the Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society, which contains papers on regionally relevant topics by regional as well as international contributors.  Beginning with Volume 95 (2022), the Journal transitioned from print to digital format. The Journal retains its original name to preserve historical continuity, but the Society changed its name in XXXX to reflect regional inclusion.

The Society holds annual meetings in Kansas or other central states, where students as well as established entomologists present results of their research or reviews of topics of interest.  All sessions are plenary., This fosters interactions among individuals across both disciplinary and organizational boundaries.
