View Online

Integrative Zoology - Biological Consequences of Global ChangeIn 2008, ISZS initiated the BCGC international research program. First supported by CAS, in 2009, it was adopted by IUBS. There are over 20 scientists from Australia, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Norway, Russia and the USA involved in the program. The focus of the BCGC program is to organize a diverse group of international experts, with expertise in many scientific disciplines, to develop an understanding of the biological consequences and the mechanisms on biological structures, endangered species and biological disasters under both global climate change and human activities. One of the goals is to promote scientific understanding of BCGC and improve the management of our Earth.
