Stable global environment is based on ecosystem that comprises a large number of biological species, abiotic environment and their complicated mutual interaction. Among them, biodiversity conservation is one of the essential points to keep the environment. “Biodiversity” denotes variation at the species level, the genetic level and the ecosystem level. We are interested in biodiversity of plant and animal species and contribute into training personnel who work to promote the conservation in domestic and/or international organizations and administrations.
