Journal Sponsorship


The Entomological Society of British Columbia (ESBC) is a registered scientific society for the advancement of entomological knowledge in the province of British Columbia. Founded in 1902 (incorporated and by-laws drafted in 1923), the Society has a long and interesting history.

The Society caters to professional entomologists, amateurs, and educators. Membership is open to all with an interest in entomology, and our current members are located throughout BC, North America, and the world. Publications of the ESBC include a biannual newsletter, an annual peer-reviewed scientific journal and occasional papers. Subscriptions to the journal are available to individuals as well as institutions, and the ESBC enjoys an extensive network of exchange partners who receive our journal in exchange for a publication of their own.

We hold an annual meeting, usually in October. The meeting is open to the public, and anyone who is interested is encouraged to attend. Our executive committee meets twice a year.

Our seal and logo features Boreus elegans, a Snow Scorpionfly which lives on the snow of coastal mountains by the Pacific Ocean. Features of BC are also represented on the seal.
