Agricultural ecosystems consist of farmland, grassland, forest, land water, road, residential area and so forth. Then, wide range of living organisms, including crops inhabit in the ecosystem locally and/or widely, and interact with each other, for examples-by means of competition, symbiosis/parasitism, predation, pollination, and hybridization. Food production is needed for human to survive. On the other hand, biodiversity is needed for environmental sustainability. We aim at sound compatibility between agricultural production and biodiversity conservation.
To achieve this target, we conduct research on the following themes:
