Activities 2011

In operation for three years, the program has become more effective in 2011. The second special issue of BCGC will be published in Integrative Zoology in the first half of 2012, just before the 31st IUBS General Assembly in Suzhou, China. Integrative Zoology is an SCI indexed journal with an impact factor in 2011 at 1.000.

The program organised two workshops, one symposium and an international training course, either individually or in cooperation with other organizations. These included: a training workshop on "Climate Change and Biosphere Reserves" in cooperation with the Chinese National Committee for MAB Programme and a Workshop on Wildlife–borne Diseases Control and Management in the Asia-Pacific Region in cooperation with the Bureau of Life Sciences and Biotechnology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS); the Department of Wildlife Conservation and Natural Reserve Management, the State Forestry Administration (SFA), China; and Wildlife Services, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
