Outline of Research
Contributing to the realization of biodiversity conservation and sustainable ecosystem services
We implement research to clarify the relationship between the structure and functions of diverse ecosystems and the impacts of human activities on ecosystems and biodiversity over a variety of spatial and temporal scales.
- Assessment of species extinction risk
- Initiatives to establish effective nature reserves
- Prevention and control of invasive alien species
- Projections on the response of organisms to climate change
- Assessment of impacts on organisms and ecosystems of habitat degradation and toxic substances
- Cryopreservation of genetic resources of endangered species
- Development of species discrimination techniques using DNA
- Long-term ecosystem monitoring (lakes, genetically modified plants, etc.)
Database / Tool
- Invasive Species of JapanThis is a searchable database that contains information on the main invasive alien species in Japan.
- NIES microbial culture collectionIt is possible to refer to the list of strains preserved in the microbial culture collection at NIES, which includes the essential information of the culture strains, references, and image data. Additional information, such as how to order, deposit, handle, and cultivate strains is also available.
- Lake Kasumigaura Database This database provides water quality and aquatic organism data of Lake Kasumigaura, which has been monitored for more than 40 years since the establishment of NIES.
