Entomology Australia

The Entomology Australia website is devoted to raising the profile of entomological education in Australia and is overseen by a collaboration of entomologists from a number of universities across Australia.

This site was developed as part of a cross-university collaborative project to develop coursework for a national tertiary-level undergraduate curriculum in entomology now named Entomology Curriculum Australia (ECA), funded through a grant from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council.

CSIRO Insects and their Allies

This site has been developed for those who are interested in insects and their close relatives but have only basic knowledge of them. The main aim of this site is to provide an understanding of the different types of invertebrates, their Classification and anatomy, allowing a person to become familiar with those that are more common or conspicuous. The site includes an overview of the biology, ecology and life cycle of all 26 orders of true insects found in Australia as well as other groups of invertebrates likely to be encountered. Further distinction, to family level within some groups is also provided as well as photographs or drawings of representative species.
