Brief Description of Research
My main concern is how a lot of species interact in a community while competing with each other or depending on the other and consequently form an ecosystem. Recently, I am investigating when freshwater fish species evolved and inhabited the Japanese freshwaters in the formation process of Japanese archipelagoes, in what position they occupy in the freshwater ecosystem, and how people have utilized them or modified their status.
