2003 ESA Annual Meeting

October 26-30, 2003

Albert B. Sabin Cincinnati Convention Center

Cincinnati, Ohio


“Entomology: From Many Disciplines, One Science”

One of the great strengths of our society is the breadth of disciplines represented by our members. This theme of this meeting highlighted entomology as a science, focused on the study of insects for the advancement of science and society. Numerous disciplines are essential components of entomological studies; systematics, genetics, evolution, behavior, ecology, biochemistry, biotechnology, physiology, toxicology, and others. Many of the world’s great discoveries occur at the interface, or across the interface, of disciplines. The great diversity of our science is a true strength that enables us, working together, to improve our understanding of insects, as well as to solve practical problems and thus benefit society.
