About Symposium

East Asia involves the continental region with various climates and habitats, as well as the chain of islands; and it is one of the most interesting regions for the vertebrate species diversity researches in the world. High species diversity of the terrestrial vertebrates such as mammals, reptiles, and amphibians have been formed during the long history of several millions of years, in reflecting the environmental changes in East Asia. To clarify the East Asian vertebrate species diversity, many scientists have been conducted and should be continued researches for taxonomy, phylogeny, phylogeography, zoogeography, life history, morphology, paleontology, ecology, conservation biology, etc., with the strong and continuous fieldworks.

To well understand the East Asian vertebrate species diversity, sharing the knowledge among the involved researchers is very important, and this symposium is planned for this purpose. This symposium is organized as an activity of JSPS AA Science Platform Program "Research platform for East Asian vertebrate species diversity and formation of specimens network" following the 1st symposium in Guangzhou University on August 2011.

This second symposium is opened for not only program members but also everyone interested in the East Asian vertebrate species diversity. Special lectures and oral presentations will be provided by invited speakers from Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea , and Vietnam. Poster presentations are opened for participants. For development young researchers, submission of poster presentation are particularly encouraged for graduated students and young researchers.
