1st OBC "The Biology of Extinction"

Organizers Yoh Iwasa (Kyusyu Univ., Japan)
Stuart Pimm (Duke Univ., USA)
Venue Okazaki Conference Center, Okazaki, Japan
Date Jan. 25-30, 2004

 「絶滅」という現象をめぐって第一線の研究を展開している、理数生物学から生態学におよぶ幅広い専門分野の研究者を招待し、6日間にわたって徹底的に討論を重ねる場とした。取り上げられた話題は、化石時代の絶滅から、現在進行中の絶滅まで;種の多様性の生成・維持のメカニズムおよび種の絶滅のメカニズムの理論的考察;絶滅の発生生物学的討論;絶滅が招来する結果についてなど多岐にわたった。その結果、さまざまな時間的・空間的スケールや理論的切り口で絶滅を研究していながら、従来面識のなかった多くの研究者が親しく交流することが出来、「絶滅」という現象をめぐる研究者のソサエティーを立ち上げることができた。
