Title: Reproduction and breeding technologies enable us to maintain bio-diversity through the time and space - Is it important to maintain bio-diversity? -
Location: University of Tsukuba, University Hall
Date & time: September 8 (Sat), 2012; 15:30-18:00
Joint sponsorship: International Institute of Avian Conservation Science Support: The Mainichi Newspapers
Registration fee: free
There existed many breeds in domestic animals and fowls, that were characteristic to resist against local climate and diseases. However, at present, modernization of rural areas has been progressed and the economic activities became much important in many countries over the world. As the result, animal genetic resources that had shown wide bio-diversity became in the dangerous situation. This is the same also for the wild animals. In the present open seminar, we will give a chance to consider the importance of conservation of genetic resources, and their utilization. We are very aware that the importance of biodiversity, whereas we also have to consider economic situation. We have noticed these conflicted issues, but cannot give any clear solution to overcome this matter. We will deepen our consideration throughout presentations, and finally we will have a discussion among all participated citizens, especially with high school students. The chira
