A symposium on ecological and organism resources was held in Hanoi on October 18 to respond to International Year of Biodiversity and Forests.

Organised by the Institute of Ecological and Organism Resources under the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, the event offered a chance for scientists in this field to present their research results and outstanding achievements over the past time.

Participants discussed and exchanged their experience with measures to deal with eco-environmental degradation and protect rare animals and plants, as well as proposed new scientific solutions to use Vietnam’s organism resources in a sustainable manner.

The symposium also selected 273 outstanding scientific reports to release in a collection of scientific reports.-VNA
