Biology International - Special Issue no 36

Disaster and Biodiversity (DAB) - beta

2017, edited by Harufumi Nishida, Jun Yokoyama, Steven J. Wagstaff, Paul Callomon

The 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake caused a tsunami and nuclear accident that heavily damaged local communities and the natural environment. The loss of biodiversity and precious biological records in nationally significant museums was also a matter of serious concern. The DAB scientific programme of IUBS led by Prof. H. Nishida aimed at the establishment of international disciplines and protocols for monitoring and managing the influences of disaster on biodiversity and biological resources at the initial stage following a disaster, and organizing an effective collaborative system to cope with future events. This aim was well appreciated at the IUBS General Assembly in 2012, and the proposal was approved as a scientific programme from 2013 to 2015. This special issue summarizes the results of three years’ discussions with internationally distinguished scientists in workshops and a symposium that was held in Sendai, a city damaged by the 2011 earthquake (from the preface of Prof. H. Takeda).
