Academic elected Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society
Fellowships are awarded to those who have made a substantial contribution to entomology, through publications or other evidence of achievement. Fellowship of the Society is regarded as an academic qualification.
The Royal Entomological Society was founded in 1833 as the Entomological Society of London and is the successor to a number of short-lived societies dating back to 1745.
Many eminent scientists of the past, Darwin and Wallace to mention but two, have been Fellows of the Society.
