Dear Readers,
I am happy to announce that finally we have completed hard work on the English issue of the
quarterly Biological and Environmental Education. Now it is ready to be handed off to our readers. In this issue, you will find articles assigned to either SCIENCE section or SCHOOL section.

In the present issue, we offer you wide variety of articles aligned in growing size of the main characters of each article. SCIENCE section begins with Bacterial species – from theory to practice. You would be surprised if you are used to the concept of biological species known for animals or plants. How it can be different in the world of bacteria? The answer is in the abovementioned article. If you prefer a bit larger organisms, you should get familiar with following articles: Moulds – friends or enemies? and Dung beetles and their role in the nature. The SCIENCE section closes with Red fox (Vulpes vulpes) as a synurbic species and its role in the spread of the Echinococcus multilocularis tapeworm.

The SCHOOL section contains three articles: Importance of digital spatial data in environmental education, Knowledge about local natural monuments – ignorance or flaws of the education system? and Elements of Health Education in Science Coursebooks. The last article is a comprehensive review on health education in Poland. Especially if you reached our quarterly from abroad, you are strongly
encouraged to read articles published
in this section as they present current problems and
hopes of education in our country. I would like to thank Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education for financial support upon English translation of all texts published in this issue. Dedicated work of our colleagues from Institute of Educational Research,nKarolina Kwiatosz and Marcin Trepczyński, is also greatly
acknowledged. Happy Holidays and enjoy English issue of Biological and Environmental Education.

Kind regards,
Takao Ishikawa
