3rd JAMBIO International Symposium“Ocean Acidification and Biodiversity Loss”

The 3rd JAMBIO International Symposium, organized by JAMBIO (Japanese Association of Marine Biology) in collaboration with the Tsukuba Global Science Week and the International Educational and Research Laboratory Program, (University of Tsukuba), will bring together researchers from around the world to discuss what approaches are essential to cope with the threat posed by the global crises of ocean acidification and biodiversity loss. This symposium will focus on a range of research topics ranging from fundamental marine biology to some recent contributions of Japanese marine stations and the worldwide association of marine stations. These contributions include an international research program for the CO2 seep system recently found at Shikine Island and a standardized technique for an extensive and global survey of coastal biodiversity, including its genetic information.
