Ecosystem Functions

How Human Activity Affects Ecosystems and Biodiversity
  Ecosystems are formed by the interaction between biological community and environment and have wide variations in both structure and function. Recently, changes in climate and land-use have greatly affected the ecosystem and biological diversity, and therefore changed the relationship between ecosystems and human beings.
   We study the structure and function of ecosystems by analyzing the distribution, structure, and function of ecosystems and their changes. In particular, we focus on exploring 1) the structure and function of ecosystems using stable isotope signatures, 2) the responses of ecosystems and their biodiversity to external environmental changes including climate change, and 3) the evaluation of ecosystem services and conditions for their sustainable use.
