Database of Entomologists

This list of personnel is a source of readily available information on individuals interested in the systematics and faunistics of the terrestrial arthropods of Canada. Consequently it excludes many workers in other fields of entomology. Each entry indicates name, position, contact information; taxa and/ or ecological groups of interest; primary subjects of taxonomic interest, primary ecological approaches, and current projects. Information is transcribed in either English or French, as used by each respondent.

The database is updated on a regular basis. The Survey Secretariat welcomes updates and additions for the database. A online form is available for this purpose.

Source of Data
Data here were obtained chiefly through email and letter enquiries sent during 2008 (and prior to that in 2003, updating a 1996 edition published in paper format). Recipients were mainly Canadian members of the Entomological Society of Canada and U.S. members from the northern tier of states, certain amateur entomologists, and specialists on lists prepared by other organizations. Enquiries to individual entomologists requested information on interests by taxonomic or ecological group, and on current projects. Entries in this list are based chiefly on replies to those enquiries. Returns are included even for those respondents with limited interests in systematics and faunistics. A few other individuals for whom some information on interests is available are also listed. The database on this website is updated on a regular basis as information becomes available.
