Graduate School of Environmental Science & Division of Environmental Resources, Graduate School of Agriculture
Filed Science Short Course will be held from July 30th to August 4th in 2009 at Spasskaya Pad Experimental Forest Station of IBPC (Institute for Biological Problems of Cryolithzone). Larch forest in Eastern Siberia has important roles for global carbon budget because of the vast area of its coverage. Deciduous larch trees are dominant in this region, and the forests are established on the permafrost. This Field Science Short course is planned for themes on those unique futures of the forest, concerned to the global change.
We welcome students and post doctoral researchers not only from Graduate School of Environmental Science and Division of Environmental Resources, Graduate School of Agriculture, Hokkaido University, but also from other universities from Russia, Japan and other countries.
