The Japanese Society of Soil Zoology aims to foster the development of soil zoology and disseminate our knowledge among our members and the public. We are the only society specialized in soil zoology in Japan. Although the name of the society sounds very professional, we are basically a bunch of people who love soil animals. We therefore welcome anyone interested in soil animals to join our society.

Annual Conferences

We hold annual conferences where society members gather and present their latest research outputs. The content of presentations is very diverse, including the latest research results as well as how the research can be applied to education and school activities. The annual conferences offer opportunities for everyone to hear stories and advice from soil scientists from all over Japan. All society members are eligible to give presentations. Additional symposia are often held in conjunction with the conferences.
