The research theme of my Ph.D. degree was the evolutionary biology of gynodioecy (coexistence of hermaphrodites and females) in liliaceous plants. Now I am working on plant diversity and conservation.
Plant Diversity and Evolution
|Activities in Academic Societies||
Botanical Society of Japan, Japan Society for Plant Systematics, Society for the Study of Species Biology, Ecological Society of Japan
We are now studying the natural hybridization between plant species, coevolution of plants and other organisms, conservation of threatened species, and microevolution of wild plants using multidisciplinary approaches.
