Welcome to ISIP

The International Sakhalin Island Project is an international collaboration of American, Russian, and Japanese scientists to survey the plants, lichens, mosses, liverworts, fungi, insects, spiders, freshwater and terrestrial mollusks, freshwater fishes, amphibians, and reptiles of Sakhalin Island. Participating institutions include the University of Washington (Fish Collection, Burke Museum, and Herbarium), the Russian Academy of Sciences, Far East Branch, and Hokkaido University, Hokkaido, Japan.

The primary purpose of the ISIP web site is to provide easy access to project results and databases, both for participants and other interested scientists. Graphical button bars are provided at the top and bottom of each page to aid navigation to each of the major sections of the ISIP site. For those using browsers without graphics support, the links provided by the button bars are: Proposal, Island Info, Results, Gallery, and Okhotskia.
