Using hypothetical ecosystem models, I conduct computer simulations of various kinds of environmental changes such as biological invasions and habitat destruction. By analyzing the results of computer simulations, I am trying to understand the general law of the behavior of ecosystem that has suffered from environmental changes and disturbances. My goal is to contribute to conservation planning and to reveal the mechanism of diversity change.
