Basis of our scientific work: The DGaaE study groups

There is a good dozen of study groups within the DGaaE that unite professional scientists and passionate laypersons, in order to research together on different topics of entomology. The study groups meet more often than the complete society (that meets every two years), the participants know each other better and cooperate more tightly.
A significant part of the research that is carried out by members of the DGaaE takes place here.

  • Diptera
  • Farm arthropods and entomopathogenic nematodes
  • Medical arachnoentomology
  • Neuroptera
  • Practical entomology and museum entomology
  • Paleoentomology
  • Cicadas and hoppers
