A later instance was an ecological expedition studying the ecosystems near Showa Station in Antarctica. The project was first undertaken in February 1986. It was associated with the international BIOTAS program[clarification needed], which also launched in 1986. Taxonomical studies of some organisms (particularly plants and small animals) were carried out by the expedition.
The current research expedition is "60th Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition" (第60次南極地域観測隊 Dai Rokuju-ji Nankyoku chiiki kansoku-tai) and began in November 2018 as part of the "Japanese Antarctic Research Project Phase IX".
