RUSSIAN ENTOMOLOGICAL SOCIETY, situated at 1 Universitetskaya Embankment. It was founded in 1859 by members of the Zoological Museum and St. Petersburg's amateur entomologists. The society had 23 branches in Russian cities uniting about 1,500 people in 2002. It was K. M. Ber who was the first president of the society in 1860-64 succeeded by E. K. Brandt in 1880-89, P. P. Semenov-Tyan-Shansky in 1890-1914, E. N. Pavlovsky in 1931-65, G. Y. Bey-Bienko in 1965-71, M. S. Gilyarov in 1973-85, and G. S. Medvedev since 1985. The primary task of the society is to popularise entomological science, assist in teaching entomology, and develop relations with foreign scientists. The society has been publishing its Proceedings, Horae Societatis Entomologicae Rossicae, since 1861 and a journal, Entomologicheskoe Obozrenie, since 1901, which was named Russkoe Entomologicheskoe Obozrenie (The Russian Entomological Review) until 1933 and is now published in collaboration with the Russian Academy of Sciences.
