Message from the President

The Mammalogical Society of Japan continues developing as one of the international bases of the mamamlogy with 1,100 members of the Society. The Society has finished becoming a general incorporated association and, under the stronger social trust, will make effort to create the free and active Society.

In this period, the Twelfth International Mammalogical Congress (IMC-12) in Perth, Australia, will be held in July 2017. Australia and Japan are countries of the same Pacific Rim with a unique fauna of mammals. The two countries have acted as leaders of the development of mammalogy in the East Asia-Pacific Regions. Because it is a good opportunity of the international activity of the Mammalogical Society of Japan, I would be delighted if you would actively participate in the Congress to communicate with mammalogists of the world.

There is an important role to raise a young member carrying the next generation in scientific study and education in The Society. I sincerely hope that The Society where young people intensely discuss will develop. I would be pleased if you could give us guidance and encouragement for the development of The Society.

President of The Mammalogical Society of Japan
Hideki Endo
