This paper discusses insect diversity, the scientific interest and potential value of insects, insect conservation, measurements of insect diversity and future of insect diversity in Egypt.
Combining the approaches of systematics and community ecology that improve our understanding of insect diversity are also discussed. For those interested in the traditional systematic approach it will provide identified specimens, identification guides, and natural history data. On the other hand our results will provide needed data on insect communities, on methods of estimating species richness and community ecology and ecosystem function. Above all, it showed agreement in the conservation's tool box, allowing the largest component of biodiversity, the arthropods including insects; to be used for the conservation of habitats.

Keywords: Insect diversity, insect conservation, community ecology.
