Abstract: The SDEI is the embodiment of tradition in German Entomology. Founded in 1886 as a "National Museum" with emphasis on systematics and taxonomy, it developed after 1922 as an institute of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft co-operating with the Imperial Biological Institute to become a mediator between systematic and applied entomology. The tasks of a centre for information transfer serving a large number of users, particularly in the field of biodiversity research, is now of greater worldwide importance than ever before. The SDEI is unique in Germany in being able to fulfil this role. Inseparable from its research activity are the excellent entomological library and the remarkable insect collections. The Institute publishes two journals which are the basis of a worldwide literature exchange. After a history full of change, the Institute (Deutsches Entomologisches Institut, DEI) moved in 2004 to a new building on the ZALF campus at Müncheberg, since 01.01.2009 SDEI is a part of Senckenberg Research Institute and Natural History Museum.
