A Lecture on diversity biology in English is scheduled in the coming term. All graduate students are welcome.
# Cross-Division Lecture
# Open lecture for all graduate schools
Primer of Diversity Biology
“Biosphere Diversity Science”
Room D102, Graduate School of Environmental Science
14:45 – 16:15, Wednesday and Friday
From October 3 to November 28
(Note: no class on Nov. 21, Nov. 23)
Biosphere covers heterogeneous substrates on Earth. This lecture provides
overview of various ecosystems in land and ocean, by around a dozen lecturers in Graduate School of Environmental Science dealing with unique target ecosystem and biological communities.
Lecturers focus on (1) biodiversity, (2) ecosystem function, and (3) their response to environmental change.caused by human activities.
Through this lecture, students are expected to achieve a whole-planet scale understanding of unique Earth biota, of which heterogeneity and diversity. It thus allows to image the ongoing effect of climate change on the ecosystem functioning and biodiversity on the Earth.
First lecture on April 20 will be held at the room C204-1 in the building of Graduate School of Environmental Science because of training course for new staff in Field Science Center. However, other lectureｓ will be held at Lecture Room in Field Science Center for Northern Biosphere.
Lecture : Advanced Course in Agricultural Environment for Crop Production
Lecture will be held as follows.
The students who are interested in this lecture will join Friday morning. This lecture will start from April 20.
Date and Time: Friday, 8:45-10:15
Room: Lecture Room 106, Field Science Center for Northern Biosphere
