The 18th European Carabidologists’ meeting was held at Agrocampus Oest in Rennes, France, on 25–19 September 2017, organised by a group of our French colleagues, lead by Elsa Canard and Manuel Plantagenet. The focal topic was “Carabid contributions to ecosystem services”. We thank the organising team and Agrocampus for hosting a fine conference, and for support from INRA, Region Bretagne, the Institute de Génétique, Environnement, et Protection des Plantes, Metropole Rennes, Université Bretagne Loire, Université de Rennes 1, and the Groupe d’Étude des Invertébrés Armoricains. This booklet contains the written version of a few presentations held at the conference. We thank the authors who submitted their manuscripts, our colleagues who helped the process with their independent reviews, and the journal Acta Zoologica Academiae Scientiarum Hungaricae that offered to publish them.
