Some of its achievements include organizing a series of symposia on Climate change, Invasive alien species and Business & biodiversity, convening expert meetings, dispatching research missions, coordinating eco-tours and producing publications.

Our Works

2004

- International Conference on Assessment and control of biological invasion risks (August 26-29, 2004, Yokohama, Japan)

Biological invasion is an irreversible process. Contaminated chemicals in the environment will be decomposed after several years, however invaded organisms reproduce themselves and persist almost for ever. New invading organisms will change the nature of forests, rivers and lakes in the future. In this conference we will discuss the assessment and control of the biological invasion risks as basic and applied sciences. The development of community ecology is necessary to predict invasion. Cost reduction and feasibility is required in many eradication programs. We need to design good social mechanisms (e.g. law, indemnification, authentication, and education.) to control invasion risks. This is the first international conference in biological invasion held in East Asia, and case studies in East Asia will be compiled.
