The duties of a division convener consist of (1) assisting with handling and review of single-topic research project applications; (2) attendance at international conferences and lectures by foreign scientists in Taiwan, short-term guidance in science and technology, and review of applications for recruited research manpower; (3) review of applications for international cooperation and bilateral S&T cooperation (discipline planning in cooperation, recommendation of priority cooperation items, reciprocal visits of personnel, etc.), funding of international academic conferences held in Taiwan, funding of teams participating in the conferences of international academic organizations, funding of multinational industry-academic collaboration and interchange, and specialized manpower training sessions; (4) attendance at division convener conferences, assisting the MOST with relevant services; (5) assistance with writing of annual research reports for the division and assistance with providing provisional academic information for the division; (6) implementation of review and explanatory meetings, discussion meetings, panel discussions, and results announcement meetings; (7) consulting, planning, and promotion of other matters related to the division; and (8) discovery of forwardlooking research topics and promotion of international interchange. The 2017 year performance conference not only provided a platform for the interaction and mutual learnings among the scientists of the division but was also a great opportunity for scientists to provide their concerns and suggestions for the development of the division. The development of this division will cover the following three fields (1) plant protection, soil and environmental conservation, (2) forestry, soil and water conservation and biomechatronic connotations and bioengineering, and (3) biodiversity. Efforts will be devoted to promote the healthy development of the three fields, to contribute to sustainable development of Taiwan and to increase international visibility. Efforts will also be devoted to sustainable development of Taiwan and promote the visibility of academic achievement. To promote the development of this division, the division convener will actively contact scientists of the division and will compile their comments and suggestion in the form of a division planning report, which shall serve to guide development of Agriculture Environment and Biodiversity.
