The official website of the Japanese Society of Applied Entomology and Zoology provides information on our society and its activities as much as possible. The Japanese Society of Applied Entomology and Zoology membership is composed of approximately 2,000 researchers that study insects, mites, spiders, nematodes, birds and other animals. These researchers are engaged in both basic and applied research activities for plant and animal protection, especially pest control, environmental preservation, utilization of insects and other related areas. The insects and animals studied by members of our society are familiar in our daily life and many people are interested in specimen collections, ecological photography, and other related activities. Moreover, these organisms are often used as teaching materials for lectures and experiments in biology.
