The general study of insects has become very popular in the last few years. People who study insects and amongst others their lives, species and evolution are called ‘entomologists’. So-called entomologists found out within their studies and profound work that there exist more or less 1.3 million different species of insects all over the world. Strictly speaking insects do not represent vermins – this because of the reason that many insects have specific interactions with humans as well as with other different forms of life on earth. In this context it can also be said that the study of insects also encompasses the general research and investigation of other arthropod groups or so-called phyla, such as for instance earthworms, arachnids, slugs, land snails, and myriapods.
Furthermore it has to be mentioned that the study of insects does not only focus different species, but also any kind and form of scientific study. Strictly speaking the scientific study of insects refers to the profound investigation and research of amongst others behavior, biochemistry, ecology, morphology, physiology, nutrition, molecular genetics, paleontology and developmental biology of different species of insects.
If a comprehensive study of an insect is finished, many entomologists decide to publish their research results on the World Wide Web. The reason for this consists in the fact that the internet enables users and interested people a quick and easy access to a wide range of different work and research results that have been made in the thematic field of scientific study of insects. Many entomologists work together and are members of special research establishments and institutions. There they have the possibility to save their research results in special databases. Entomologists can decide which research results should be freely accessible to users and interested people and which ones are liable to pay costs or generally blocked. Blocked studies and research results do normally contain very sensitive data and information which are not destined for general users and interested people.
With regard to such scientific online studies of insects it has to be stressed that this kind of studies should be published on stable and high quality websites with a large amount of trust and a fully functional webhosting. The reason for this consists in the fact that many people are going to access different studies at the same time which means that the respective website has to be installed on a good web server.
