Entomologia y Vectores
Publisher: the Editora Gama Filho
The journal Entomologia y Vectores was born in Argentina in 1994 by the
altruistic efforts of two researchers: Rodolfo U. Carcavallo from Argentina
and Itamar Galindez-Girón from Venezuela who turned out the journal
international. With financial support of Universidad de Los Andes
(Venezuela) and CiBIOM-CONICET of Argentina, number nº1 of volume nº1 of the
journal was edited in February of 1994, including articles about vectors of
Chagas Disease, dealing with biology, morphology and taxonomy, including the
description of a new species of Triatoma.
It was created with the purpose of publishing information on the arthropod
vectors involved in pathologies, including aspects of taxonomy, physiology,
morphology, ecology, etiology, geographic distribution, genetics, control
and history of Entomology. Particular attention was given to subjects that
have to do with population dynamics of pests and diseases taking into
account evident climate global changes, a subject rarely considered in other
journals that deal with Entomology.
It is dedicated to the field of Entomology and Acarology, with emphasis to
the study of vectors, related to human and animal (veterinary) diseases,
insect pests of cultivated plants and/or of economic interest, including
related subjects such as Geography and Climatology applied to Entomology.
Articles on history of Entomology, including biographies of distinguished
entomologists are also published.
The journal accepts articles written in Portuguese, English, Spanish and
