Japanese Society of Applied Entomology and Zoology has been established in the year 1957, as a result of unification between the Nippon Society of Applied Entomology and the Japanese Society for Applied Zoology. The Japanese Society of Applied Entomology and Zoology membership is open to researchers who are interested in the applied entomology and zoology fields, including nematology, acarology, pesticides and pest control equipment. JSAEZ membership is poised of around 2,000 researchers that study insects, mites, spiders, nematodes, birds and other animals. These researchers are involved in both basic and applied research activities for plant and animal protection, particularly pest control, ecological preservation, utilization of insects and other related areas. The insects and animals studied by members of the society are familiar in our daily life and many people are interested in specimen collections, ecological photography, and other associated activities. Moreover, these organisms are often used as teaching resources for lectures and experiments in biology. JSAEZ publishes two separate journals quarterly: Japanese Journal of Applied Entomology and Zoology (Japanese) and Applied Entomology and Zoology (English). The Japanese Society of Applied Entomology and Zoology provides a society fellowship and a young scientist award. The society fellowship award is given to a member who shows remarkable achievement in applied entomology and applied zoology. The young scientist award is given to a young member (less than 40 years old) who is anticipated to make advancements in applied entomology and/or applied zoology.
