Lake Baikal is the oldest lake and biggest freshwater reservoir on the planet. due to its exceedingly lengthy geological background, the lake has been a theatre of evolution and speciation of organisms, and it at the moment harbors extra species than the other lake on the planet. in keeping with its exact nature, Lake Baikal was once lately precise an international history website and is considered a hotspot for evolution, speciation, and biodiversity. With its enormously unusual biota, Lake Baikal is now looking forward to glossy analytical ways to the profound difficulties of speciation and evolution. In past due autumn 1998 a symposium used to be held in Japan with the subject matter "Lake Baikal: A reflect in time and area for knowing international switch procedures" to assemble scientists from diversified disciplines who're learning Lake Baikal. 3 overseas medical institutions: The BICER (Baikal overseas heart for Ecological Research), BDP (Baikal Drilling Project), and DIWPA (Diversitas Western Pacific and Asia) have been considering the supplier. This publication includes a number of papers provided at this symposium. they're interdisciplinary in nature and convey jointly effects from geology, paleontology, chemistry, biology, limnology and physics.
