Springer to publish journal and book series for Entomological Society of Brazil

February 02, 2012

Starting in 2012 Springer will partner with the Entomological Society of Brazil to publish the journal Neotropical Entomology and a new book series Entomology in Focus. Prof. Fernando L.Consôli of the University of São Paulo is editor of both the journal and the book series.

Founded in 1972, Neotropical Entomology is a bimonthly journal publishing original articles written by Brazilian and international experts in several subspecialties of entomology, including bionomics, systematics, morphology, physiology, behavior, ecology, biological control, crop protection and acarology. The Forum section publishes extensive reviews and thought-provoking articles on contemporary issues in entomology. According to the ISI Impact Factor, Neotropical Entomology is the best-ranked entomological journal in Latin America.

Publishing at least three books a year, the new series Entomology in Focus will deepen our understanding of the diversity, life and ecology of insects. Books in this series will provide a comprehensive synthesis of basic and applied topics in the field of entomology, including insights into how humans can benefit from these organisms and at the same time diminish their negative effects.

Zuzana Bernhart, Senior Publishing Editor Plant Sciences at Springer, said, "Brazilian entomology is renowned for the high quality of its research, and Springer is delighted to be able to join the prestigious Entomological Society of Brazil to bring this knowledge to the global market. We are proud to publish the Society's journal Neotropical Entomology, in addition to launching a brand new book series which will continue its tradition of excellence in this scientific area."

Prof. Antônio Ricardo Panizzi, President of the Entomological Society of Brazil, said, "With Springer as the publisher of the journal Neotropical Entomology, and the launch of the new book series Entomology in Focus, the Brazilian Entomological Society is taking innovative steps forward. Our goal is to bring entomology from the neotropics to the attention of the worldwide community."
