How is entomology different from parasitology

Institute of Parasitology

DE: The NZVE is the specialist agency for arthropod vectors in animals financed by the Federal Veterinary Office and the reference laboratory for vectors associated with animal diseases and zoonoses. With its activities, the center assumes a central role in the early detection of vector-borne animal diseases and zoonoses. To this end, the NZVE carries out application-oriented research (experimental, descriptive) and ensures specialist expertise for the detection of vectors in Switzerland. The NZVE is involved in teaching and advising other institutions working in the field of vectors.

FR: Le CNEV, financé par l’Office Vétérinaire Fédéral Suisse, est le center de compétence et laboratoire de référence pour les arthropodes vecteurs de maladies animales. Par ses activités, le center joue un rôle primordial dans la détection précoce des maladies animales et zoonoses à transmission vectorielle. In ce but, le CNEV développe des programmes de recherche appliquée (expérimentale, descriptive) et assure en Suisse l'expertise nécessaire à l'identification des arthropodes vecteurs. The CNEV s’investit dans l’enseignement ainsi que dans la consultance pour d’autres institutions actives dans le domaine de l’entomologie vétérinaire et médicale.
