Abstract: Recently, in Asian countries, interests in ornithology are increasing for conservation and academic research. The 26th International Ornithological Congress in Japan in 2014 will bring wonderful opportunities for deligates to access beautiful nature of Japan and surrounding areas, and will aid rapid progress in ornithology not only in Japan but throughout Asia. International ornithological congresses have a long history of integrating all branches of science, from basic research in physiology, morphology, and molecular biology, to applied research in conservation, medicine, and agriculture, because birds are the experimental vertebrates of choice when trying to find answers to problems in these various areas. Birds have conquered all of the Earth’s biomes; their body sizes range from the tiniest hummingbird to the enormous moas, and they share diurnality, color vision, visual and vocal communication, and three-dimensional space with us humans.
