The forest and coastal biospheres have been tightly related to one another, and have given plenty of benefits to human beings. The rapid expansion of human activity in recent times, however, threatens to sever this long-existing relationship and causes a severe environmental problem. In order to recover these biospheres and their proper relationship, and to make sustainable use of the benefits from them, the progress of the study on human ecosystem is much desired. Under the circumstances above, the FSERC aims to establish the "Connected Rings of Forest-Human Habitation-Marine", a new frontier of field science which aids the coexistence of nature and human beings, and to become a hub organization of the field science in the temperate zone of East Asia. The details of research and education are shown in the description of each division.


The Field Science Education and Research Center (FSERC) was founded in 2003 by integrating the University Forests, the Subtropical Plant Institute and the Maizuru Fisheries Research Station affiliated with the Graduate School of Agriculture, and the Seto Marine Biological Laboratory with the Graduate School of Science.The year of foundation of each facility is as follows:
