Abstract : The development of a Korean Center for Environmental Studies is proposed, within which an integrated program of research and education in ecosystem ecology can evolve. The design of its program is intended to incorporate into its structure provisions for the accumulation of significant data, for the growth of ecological theory, for the strengthening of cooperation within the international scientific community, and for the diffusion of modern ecological thought within the Republic of Korea. It is anticipated that the results of this undertaking will be of great value to all concerned, for the program represents both the opportunity to develop the basic scientific information Korea requires in its efforts to become self-sufficient and the mechanism by which a significant contribution to the advancement of scientific understanding can be made.
