Description

Scope of the Conference:

The main objective of the Global Conference on Entomology is to showcase advances in entomological research and development in the insect world. The skills and knowledge of entomologists are needed worldwide helping farmers to produce crops and livestock more efficiently through sound pest management strategies, fighting to save endangered species and fragile ecosystems, and preventing insects from spreading agents that cause serious diseases.

Insects provide a readily accessible resource for you to use in developing a better scientific understanding of the world around you. For more than 350 million years, insects have evolved and adapted to become the creatures we know today. Through the millennia, insects have become an essential part of every terrestrial and freshwater ecosystem. They are the most numerous and diverse form of life on Earth. About one million species are known, and it is estimated that 10 million are undiscovered. The study of insects helps us increase the bounty of the land and preserve its natural beauty. It also helps us understand how to protect lives and property from harmful insects. Food shortages still exist in many parts of the world. About 40 percent of the world’s food production is lost to insect pests each year. Sound entomological research and extension programs are at the forefront of the sciences involving these important problems. Although reducing vast insect-caused losses will not automatically solve the hunger problems - other economic and cultural factors are important too - entomology is a central part of the solution. Vast areas of the world are dominated by insects that transmit parasites that cause yellow fever, river blindness, Chagas disease, and sleeping sickness. Malaria, plague, and tick-borne fevers are diseases of worldwide importance, and entomologists lead the way in research to combat these ailments. Entomologists are seeking new, less expensive ways to prevent these losses.

The scheduled conference organized by the Century Foundation, Bangalore in association with other organizations will provide a scientific platform to exchange the information on the recent advances in entomological research and to bring together the International scientific community involved in the study of insects.
