Abstract: Introduction: Hokkaido University has the largest experimental forest in the world belonging to one university with several advanced facilities and an ecologically well-managed campus. We have been developing lectures on field science as part of the Hokkaido University Short-Term Exchange Program (HUSTEP) through creatin nameplates of trees (including their ecology, utilization and origin of their name, ets.). The instigation for the creation of new lectures on field science (Environmental Science for Bilolgical Resources) was serious environmental changes due to rapid economic development in Northeast Asia. Under these environmental changes, conservation of biodiversity in forests is a very important issue for future generations, We will be able to solve these environmental problems only when we forge international cooperation in environmental health services. Hokkaido University, located in Northeast Asia, should be engaged in environmental science education as well as forest technology.Hokkaido University Forests have been development a lecture on "Environmental Science for Biological Resources" as a contribution to the development of HUSTEP. The goal of the lecture is to encourage HUSTEP students to study in East Asia where we have the highest biodiversity. Students will be able to recognize species rich forests and campus in Far East. We also show the students that we have been using wood resources following the traditional methods of the Ainu, the indienous people of northern Japan. However, we need a reasonable mathod for imparting the traditional methods of the Ainu as well as sustainable use of wood resources to the students. For these reasons, we have established nameplates of representative tree species, which includes information about their ecology and utilization methods for HUSTEP education, with the ultimate aim of improving education at Hokkaido University. The objective of this document is to improve the HUSTEP lectures through the introduction of the contents and locations of the tree nameplates on the campus.
