A number of landmark events in applied entomology are listed together with some insect-related studies that have had a major impact on biology in general. In large part, however, advances in our understanding of insects have depended on technological advances, especially in the second half of the century. The exponential increase in the ease and extent of communication has been critical. Sometimes, as in the field of insect/plant relations, the ideas of a few individuals have been critical with technological advances having a facilitating role. Elsewhere, as in the study of olfaction, major changes in understanding have been directly dependent on new technology. Very brief accounts of the impacts on insect-related science of developments in the fields of radio, radioactivity, immunology, imaging techniques, and chemical analysis are given. Despite the importance of technology, the lovers of their insects continue to have a key role.
