Société entomologique de France

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Société entomologique de France is a French entomological society.

The society was founded by 18 entomologists on January 31, 1832 in Paris. Pierre André Latreille (1762–1833) was unanimously elected the Society's first president, followed by Victor Audouin (1797–1841). The aim of the association was or is to contribute to the progress and development of entomology in all its aspects. It is based in the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris.

For some time the Society has published the Annals of the Entomological Society of France, Annales de la Société entomologique de France, and the Bulletin of the Natural Science Society in France, Bulletin de la Société entomologique de France . Its library comprises 15,000 volumes and 1,500 journal articles, all of which are broadly devoted to entomology.

The society had around 660 active members in 2007.
