What does a entomologist study?


Insects




Answer: Entomology is the scientific study of insects. Scientists who study insects (there are close to a million that can be studied) are called entomologists. Entomologists have many important jobs, such as the study of the classification, life cycle, physiology, behavior, and population dynamics of insects. About 8,000 men and women work as professional entomologists in the United States. There are roughly one million described species of insect and entomologists estimate that there are probably another five million species that are yet to be identified.
