International Workshop on Quantitative Ecology & 2nd Taiwan-Japan Ecology Workshop
About the Workshop
This is the second time that we gather distinguished ecologists from both Taiwan and Japan to form a workshop. This time we expand our scope to invite also distinguished guests from USA and France. The purposes of this workshop are 1) to facilitate interactions among ecologists from both countries, 2) to serve as a means to discuss important ecological and environmental issues in the 21th century, 3) to promote quantitative ecology in Taiwan, and 4) to cultivate exchanges of ideas among scientists and students. The Taiwan-Japan Ecology Workshops are intended to serve as a conduit of long-term partnership between the Taiwan and Japan ecological societies.
