The Scientific Committee for Italian Fauna (CSFI)

The Scientific Committee for Italian Fauna (Comitato Scientifico per la Fauna d’Italia​ – CSFI) was officially established in 1989. The aims of the CSFI are: a) the planning, organisation and scientific supervision of the volumes to be published in the series “Fauna d’Italia”, sponsored by the Italian National Academy of Entomology (Accademia Nazionale Italiana di Entomologia) and the Italian Zoological Union (Unione Zoologica Italiana – UZI); as well as the planning, organisation and scientific supervision of other publishing initiatives, through any medium, relating to wildlife in general; and b) providing scientific advice. The CSFI is a non-profit organisation and its members are not paid for their work. Available funds derive from grants and allocations from public or private bodies (national or international), private citizens or scientific consulting bodies. The CSFI uses these funds to implement its scientific and publishing initiatives.
