Beetles, the insect order Coleoptera, are one of the dominant forms of life on earth. One of every five described species of all animals or plants is a beetle! Various species live in nearly every habitat except the open sea, and for every possible kind of food, there’s probably at least one beetle species that eats it.
Beetles appeared even before the dinosaurs existed, and now they greatly outnumber the descendants of the dinosaurs, modern birds. Coleoptera includes beneficial and pest species, beautiful and plain, huge and tiny. They have even had a role in human culture, most notably the ancient Egyptians who revered the sacred scarab as a symbol of life and rebirth.
The Coleopterists Society is an international organization devoted to the study of all aspects of systematics and biology of beetles of the world. Membership is open to any individual interested in the objectives of the society as outlined in the Constitution and By-Laws.
