Acadian Entomological Society is a registered scientific society whose
objectives are to bring about a close association of entomologists and those
interested in entomology in the four Atlantic Provinces and the
neighbouring New England States, and to cooperate with and to support the Entomological Society of Canada. Founded in 1915, the
Society caters to professional entomologists, amateurs,
and educators. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in
entomology. The Society meets annually, typically in July, and publishes proceedings from these meetings. You can now join the AES online here.

Members and non-members are invited to submit their manuscripts to the Journal of the Acadian Entomological Society, an electronic refereed scientific journal produced by the Society. Occasional papers, containing information of special interest or taxonomic value that do not fit the terms of reference for publication in the Journal may also be published intermittently.
