    • Subprojects

      • 1.Global Sciaenidae Conservation Network (Ning Labbish Chao, Hin-Kiu Mok, Chih-Wei Chang)
      • 2.Diversity and Phylogeny of Crustacean in the coral reef of Indo-Pacific (Chia-Wei Lin)
      • 3.Biodiversity of fishes in Taiwan (Hsuan-Ching Ho)

    • Research Overview

      The integrative project of Marine Biodiversity aims to expanse the specimen collection of marine organisms from Taiwan and the adjacent areas, to promote a worldwide collaboration by an effective utilization of the collection, and to engage regional and/or global coordinated studies on both genetic and species diversity. Ultimately, the potential of specimen collection and related studies at NMMBA could be upgraded and of a significantly worldwide impact.
