RESEARCH TOPICS:

For resolving human-wildlife conflicts, our laboratoy has conducted multidisciplinary researches in terms of different spatio-temporal scales, which deal with decision-makings from regional policy to national land policy regarding wildlife population and habitat management in northern Japan. To promote understanding local ecosystem process (including human interventions), which affords the key to develop a radical solution to the current and future conflicts, we have also addressed basic ecological studies on multi-evaluation of biological interactions and various species habitats both in natural and artificially modified forest environments.

RESEARCH INTERESTS:

  • Landscape ecology: habitat evaluation procedures, resource selection functions
  • Community ecology: biological interactions between large mammals and other organisms
  • Wildlife management: population control, habitat management, damage management, human dimensions
  • Forest ecology: conifer plantation management
  • Restoration ecology: habitat restoration

MAIN STUDY FIELDS:

  • Shirakami Mountains, northern Japan
  • Towada-Hakkoda areas, northern Japan
  • Asahi-Iide Mountains, northern Japan

MAIN STUDY SPECIES:

  • Japanese macaque
  • Sika deer
  • Wild boar
  • Japanese serow
