Entomological collection

In the premises of the Department for the forest protection and wildlife ecology is also rich entomological collection of primarily forest insects. It was created as a result of the research of insects and forest protection, after establishing Agronomic and forestry faculty in 1949. At the Faculty, the Chair for forest protection was organized and established in 1951  by J. Šlander, as well as entomological study collection  (Šlander 1955). Entomological collection of the Department of Forestry and Renewable Forest Resources BF (BF-FOREST / ENTOMFAVNA) was continuously supplemented as a result of research work in the field of forest protection. Part of the entomological collection is also beetles collection in which we started in November of 2005  systematic editing of the material. This resulted in a revised collection of longhorn beetles (Cerambycidae). In the preparation is also a collection of bark beetles (Scolytidae).
