The one week training focused on the new technologies used in the processes of biodiversity inventory including geographical information management, field survey, and data management. Seventeen participants participated in the training and the trainees had a chance to practice the newly acquired skills in the one day field visit to Changbaishan Biosphere Reserve at the end of the training.
