ESTABLISHMENT


The Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources (IEBR) was founded by the decision of the Council of Ministers (HĐBT 65/CT) on 5th March 1990. Its function consists of studying biological resources and typical ecosystems in order to supply the needs of the population in foodstuffs, food_grains, consumer goods, to recommend planning activities for socio-economic development and environmental protection and to carry out the education and training of scientists on ecology and biological resources.

Major Scientific Objectives:

  • To study the flora and fauna of Vietnam.

  • To inventory and evaluate biological resources in order to provide a basis for rational utilization of the species having scientific, economic,  and  conservation values.

  • To undertake research on the structure and function of typical ecosystems in Vietnam for the monitoring and management of natural resources and their environment.

  • To work on environmental restoration, and the designing and planning of sustainable development from an environmental perspective.

  • To train scientists in the field of ecology and biological resources.

The Institute has 115 research staffs.

  • Associate Professors: 10

  • Doctors: 34

  • Masters: 43

  • Bachelors: 35

  • Technicians and laboratory assistants: 3

The Institute is divided into 16 Departments and 01 Biodiversity Field Station.



INTRODUCTION

In recent times, IEBR has led and taken part in national, ministerial and Academy (VAST) programmes.

It has carried out surveys and inventories of biological resources in different regions of Vietnam. The surveys assessed the current distribution, density and status of species with high scientific and economic values such as Panax, Pseudopanax, Pines, Hardwoods, Gibbons, Snub Nosed Monkey, Rhino, Wild oxes, Pheasants, Peacocks, fresh water Crocodiles etc.

The results provide a basis for recommendations on the rational utilization, restoration and protection of these precious resources. The results can then be used in feasibility studies of Nature Reserves and National Parks          

 

The results of fundamental research in the Institute have been, and will continue to be, published in the book series: Fauna and Flora of Vietnam, Plant Resources of Vietnam, Animal Resources of Vietnam, and in the following books: Conspectus of the Flora of Vietnam, the Fauna of Vietnam, the Red Data Book of Vietnam and the Handbook of Economic Plants of Vietnam and others.


IEBR works in co-operation with national and international institutions such as: Institute of Problems of Ecology and Evolution (Moscow); Institutes of Botany and Zoology (St. Petersburg), Russian Academy of Science; Institutes of Botany and Zoology (Kunming), China; Museum of Natural History (Hungary); Institute of Zoology (Poland); Institute of Entomology and the Institute of Landscape Ecology, Czech Academy; Museum of Natural History, Paris (France); Missouri Botanical Gardens, New York Botanical Gardens, American Museum of Natural History, New York (USA) ; Frankfurt Zoological Society (Germany); Adelaide Zoo (Australia), etc, and other international organisations such as IUCN, UNDP, Birdlife International, Frontier, UNESCO, WWF, ICF, PROSEA, CIAT, WPA, etc.

 

Besides active research, the Institute conducts training courses leading to qualifications in Masters, Doctorates and other post-graduate level research.
