International Workshops on Sawflies


Since 1997 the yearly International Workshops on Sawflies have been organized mainly by the staff of the Deutsches Entomologisches Institut. During the first years the workshops consisted of a mixture of talks, presentations and collecting trips. Meanwhile the talk sessions are separated from the field works and held during the Winter Workshops. The workshops have a great importance for the continuous exchange of information within the community of Symphyta specialists.
