Dear BES President Professor Georgina Mace,
I am told that the British Ecological Society is about to celebrate its 100th Anniversary.
On behalf of the Ecological Society of Japan I am writing to send you my warmest congratulations. At a time of the Planet under Pressure, I acknowledge your Society's leadership in the global environmental issues. Our Society is 40 years younger than your Society, established 60 years ago. I know that your Society is striving to support our members.
We wish the BES a successful meeting this year as joint meeting of BES and INTECOL in London and continued excellence in promoting the science of ecology. We are honoured to join in your celebration.
Professor Hiroyuki Matsuda,
Ecological Society of Japan, President
