The Institute of Entomology is a scientific institution of basic and applied research in areas, in which insects are either in focus of attention (insect pests, species useful for environment monitoring etc.) or serve as suitable models for the solution of general biological problems.
The Institute is located in the town of Ceské Budejovice, about 160 km south of Prague, the capital of the Czech Repuplic.
The more than ninety Institute's researchers and PhD students conduct research in a variety of fields, ranging from molecular biology to ecology.
The Institute publishes the European Journal of Entomology (EJE).
