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
Major Scientific Objectives:
To study the flora and fauna of
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
To work on environmental restoration,
and the designing and planning of sustainable development
from an environmental perspective.
train scientists in the field of ecology and biological
The Institute has 115 research staffs.
Associate Professors: 10
Technicians and laboratory assistants: 3
is divided into 16 Departments and 01 Biodiversity Field Station.
In recent times, IEBR has led and taken part in national, ministerial and Academy
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
