About the Florida Entomologist

Welcome to Florida Entomologist, the first long-published, referreed, natural science journal on the Internet. Florida Entomologist is also:

  • the first journal to put its contents on the Internet in PDF format,
  • the first life science journal to have all current and back issues on the Web with free access,
  • the first entomological journal to allow authors to archive supplemental digital material with their articles,
  • the first journal to be freely accessible on BioOne

Florida Entomologist is the official journal of the Florida Entomological Society. Volumes 1-3 were published under the name The Florida Buggist. The Florida Entomological Society still produces the traditionally printed version of Florida Entomologist, but you can also view, search, or print any article published since June 1917 by accessing online files. Web access is made possible by the Society’s electronic publication project begun in 1993.

We encourage you to also view the online files of the Boletín de Entomología Venezolana and Entomotropica, produced by the Sociedad Venezolana de Entomologia.

FES members who subscribe to the mailing list, FLORIDAENT-L, will receive the table of contents of each issue as it is published. They will also automatically receive the Society’s Newsletter when it is posted each quarter. See Mailing Lists for details.
