Editorial note

After 11.5 years of service to Entomologia experimentalis et applicata, Dr. S.J. Simpson has stepped down as Associate Editor of the journal. Dr. Simpson became Associate Editor in January 2001. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Dr. Simpson for his most competent and pleasant collaboration throughout all these years. His efforts have been instrumental in the success of the journal.
