JCRS 20th meeting

The Japanese Coral Reef Society, 20th Annual Conference

 

The Annual Conference of the Japanese Coral Reef Society (JCRS) in 2017 will be held on Nov. 23 to 26 in Tokyo Institute of Technology. This is a milestone as the 20th annual conference, commemorating also the incorporation of the JCRS just before the conference. Therefore, we are planning to introduce various attempts so that the conference will serve as an important step toward the next decade for further development of the JCRS in much wider scope. We welcome all of you to attend and enjoy the conference.

Asia-Pacific region, especially Coral Triangle area and its surroundings, are known for extremely high biodiversity in their coastal ecosystems, which have various biological communities such as corals, seagrasses, mangroves and others with interconnectivities among them. However the ecosystems have been degrading due to various local and global scale anthropogenic impacts. Therefore it is an urgent need to promote sciences for the ecosystem conservation and their implementation to the society through various international and transdisciplinary collaborations. In this symposium, several active researchers in the ‘Coral Triangle’ area and others will be invited to have introduction of highlights of their recent researches on coastal ecosystem conservation with comments on the needs for international networking. Then ways to realize and promote various international and transdisciplinary collaborations as the important challenges of JCRS toward the next decade will be discussed.
