--Celebrating 70 years of “Metasequoia” since Prof. Miki's description of these fossil remains --
Osaka Museum of Natural History, Japan August 3-8, 2010


■Osaka is the Root of Metasequoia Study

The 3rd International Metasequoia Symposium will be held at Osaka, Japan from August 3 to 8, 2010. The organizing committee is pleased to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Metasequoia Symposium.
This interdisciplinary conference will provide scientists the opportunity to present and discuss new research on Metasequoia and allied genera. The organizing committee has selected Japan as the location to hold the 3rd International Metasequoia Symposium because it has a history rich in the study of fossil plants and one of its most notable scientists is Professor S. Miki who was the first person to describe Metasequoia fossils. The symposium is taking place at the Osaka Museum of Natural History (OMNH) where Professor Miki’s collection resides, and symposium participants will have an opportunity to observe Miki’s collection. The organizing committee would also be delighted, if the participants could enjoy a field excursion visiting some Neogene fossil sites and selected locations where you can enjoy typical Japanese nature and hospitality.
