Laboratory of Invertebrate Diversity, Institute of Ecology of Mountain Territories of Kabardino-Balkarian Scientific Centre of Russian Academy of Sciences, Innesy Armand str., 37A, Nalchik, 360051, Russia


I would like to bring to the attention of the reader that this issue of ZOOSYMPOSIA is devoted to the blessed memory of three outstanding entomologists―taxonomists, who made inestimable contributions to the knowledge of crane flies of the World, namely, Charles Paul Alexander (1889–1981), Bernhard Mannheims (1909–1971), and Eugeniy Nikolaevich Savchenko (1909–1994). The year 2009 marks 120 years since the birth of C. Alexander and the 100th anniversary of E. Savchenko and B. Mannheims.
