APACE was officially inaugurated at a symposium meeting held in conjunction with Third Asia-Pacific Conference of Entomology in Taichung, Taiwan on 21 November 1997. APACE is organized to promote the understanding of interactions between organisms and their environments that are mediated by naturally occurring chemicals. Research areas include the study of structure, function, synthesis and biosynthesis of natural products related to organisms, their importance at all levels of ecological organization, their evolutionary origin and their practical application.
