Abstract

The International Advisory Council for Biosystematic Services in Entomology (IACBSE) (initially called "- - - Committee - - -" ) was formally established at the XVIIth International Congress of Entomology, held August 23, 1984, in Hamburg, Federal Republic of Germany, by Resolution No 1 upon the recommendation of the Permanent Council of the International Congress of Entomology. The Resolution emphasized that (a) the number of available insect taxonomists is not sufficient to meet demands for their expertise, (b) the training and employment of biosystematists necessary for the supply of biosystematic services need to be promoted, (c) all potential users communicate in the planning stages of their projects with potential providers of biosystematic services, and (d) national and international organizations make specific budgetary allocations for the support of the biosystematic component in their projects.
