Gender Balance in Science Study by IUBS Published

A study by IUBS Working Group on Gender Equality is published recently. The study mentions that, access to scientific careers for women has never been easy, but as biases and barriers slowly begin todiminish, women are becoming more and more involved in science, especially Biological Sciences. Some of the reasons why women do not have the same opportunities to achieve career pathways equal to those of men are discussed in the study. The study also highlights an ongoing need to design and apply new policies to effect a gender balance throughout the career path.

Biology International - Special Issue #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).
