We are trying to pursue problems as to why and how biodiversity has been evolved and maintained. Particularly, we try to solve the problems of why some organisms can evolve to adapt to various environments, while others cannot. Species that can adapt to various and changing environments might have some genetic and genomic basis conferring high evolvability. We apply various approaches from genomics to macroecology to solve these problems, and to predict factors that cause biodiversity change across various levels of biological organization.
These are examples of our subject animals:
