Presentation in the 22nd IPS international congress
Date:2008/07/31 - 0000/08/11
I attended the 22nd Congress of the International Primatological Society (IPS) and visited the National Natural Museum in Great British. The IPS congress was held in Edingburgh city, Scotland from August 3rd to 8th. On 4th I made a poster presentation entitled 'Habituate hot spring bath by a group of Japanese macaques in their natural habitats', and on the 8th I made an oral presentation entitled 'The Sichuan snub-nosed monkey and its multi-level societies'. On 7th and 8th, I intensively joined in the odd-nose monkey symposium and the other two-day sections focusing on odd-nosed monkey. The congress provided me a great chance to communicate with world-wide primatologists, particularly with many researchers who are also studying odd-nosed monkeys.
I visited the Natural History Museum in London after the IPS congress. The exhibitions on mammal, marine invertebrates, insects, primates and human biology were very interesting and expanded my knowledge in various perspectives.
The trip gave me a great chance to meet
many primatologists and to learn the latest progress of current
primatological researches. It was a marvelous experience for me.
