Institute of Entomology

We study insects as the most species-rich group of organisms on the Earth with great impact on the human society. The Institute carries on taxonomic, genetic, physiological, molecular and ecological investigations on a wide range of model insect species and model ecosystems.

Today, the staff of more than 100 (there are 109 full-time positions) includes specialists ranging from molecular biologists to field ecologists. Research is supported by more than 40 grants and annual scientific output counts about 100 papers in renowned international journals (an interactive database of all publications is available on the Institute‘s webpage). Since 1962, the Institute has trained more than 150 Ph.D. students and organised over 30 international meetings. We participate considerably in maintaining the research station in Papua-New Guinea. Extensive collections of insects including numerous type materials are housed at the Institute.
