EAFES Special Symposium EX04 -- 18 March 9:30-12:00 Room I

Wetlands in Asia under Global Climate Change

Organizers: KANG, Hojeong, HARAGUCHI, Akira

Wetlands play a key role in global biogeochemical cycle by sequestering CO2, and by releasing various traces gases into the atmosphere. They also represent a hot spot of biodiversity by providing valuable habitats for rare species of plants, invertebrates and others. This symposium is to provide a venue to discuss and disseminate scientific information collected from wetlands in Asia in relation to global climate change. In particular, issues around impacts of global climate changes on wetlands, biological feedbacks of wetlands to the atmospheric composition, changes in biodiversity in wetlands, and water quality amelioration by wetlands will be presented.
