Journal Name Change

The Australian Journal of Entomology is now known as Austral Entomology. This will reflect the journal's broadening scope: to publish entomological research from the whole of the Southern Hemisphere, from Australasia, to Africa, and South America. It will continue to focus on publishing original peer-reviewed research articles from the study of the biology, ecology, systematics, behaviour, evolution and control of insects, arachnids and myriapods, now with relevance to the Southern Hemisphere
