China includes many different environments inhabited by insects, ranging from Palearctic to Oriental realms. More than 45 000 species of insects occur in China, but the status of knowledge varies widely among different groups. The status researches and conservation of insect diversity was introduced.
Insect studies as one of the project of biodiversity must synchronize with the research and protection of plants and animals. To coordinate the research of insect diversity in the Ecological Research Stations is necessary.
The priority sites and priority species of rare and endangered species are suggested. To strengthen biological and ecological studies of rare and endangered species and to edit the "Red List of Insect' are the urgent works in the coming years.
