Royal Entomological Society appoints Director of Science

Published: 04 November 2007

For the first time in its history the Royal Entomological Society (RES) has appointed a Director of Science, whose role is to review that society's public interface and to respond to enquiries about entomology from the press and the public.

The Director will also be involved in an RES project to publish a proposed popular volume "The RES Book of British Insects" which will include glossy photographs. The appointee is Dr Peter Barnard, who until recently worked at the Natural History Museum in London, and is the first entomologist ever to be employed by the RES.
