EAFES Symposium ES05 -- 19 March 9:00-12:00 Room I

AP-BON (Asia Pacific Biodiversity Observation Network) and Ecological Studies

Organizers: Yumoto, Takakazu (RIHN), Yahara, Tetsukazu (Kyushu Univ.)

After CBD COP 10 in Nagoya, UN Decade on Biodiversity has launched. We have realized how little we know about biodiversity and its ecosystem function, especially in Asia and Pacific region. We, ecologists, have to put much more collective efforts into investigating the changes of biodiversity in forest ecosystems, agricultural ecosystems, freshwater ecosystems, and coastal ecosystems, and relationships among them under the anthropogenic pressures. In this symposium, we try to share the information among EAFES countries how national and international projects on biodiversity and ecosystem function are going on, and what will come in the next.
