Agricultural Ecology  (Agricultural and Environmental Biology

Overview

Agricultural research in recent years tends to be individualized and subdivided and separated from the field of agricultural production. Under such circumstances, our laboratory is conducting research based on agricultural ecology focusing on the interaction between agricultural products, the environment, and humans. In other words, targeting organisms that live in the ecosystem of cultivated land, increasing biological production, improving quality and efficiency, reducing the burden on the environment and preserving the production environment, environmental response and utilization of genetic resources, etc. We are conducting research aimed at building a new sustainable production system based on this.

Ecological Harmony Engineering  (Biological and Environmental Engineering

Overview

Building a next-generation agricultural system that connects fields and society and environmental technology with the aim of breaking away from the conventional productivity-oriented agricultural system and using nature's blessing ecosystem services in a sustainable and effective manner. We are conducting research on development based on the Tanashi Campus, which is a series of cultivated land, green land, and forest land. The research target is a complex system from the mechanism of the ecosystem service itself to the relationship between humans and society related to agriculture and food in the food chain such as producer-distributor-consumer, and the research method is field level. It covers a wide range of fields, from micro to macro at the laboratory level, to measurement, control, and analysis that make full use of engineering methods from the viewpoint. Currently, I am mainly conducting research on the development of various applications including practical use, cultivation and the construction of post-harvest technology aiming at high added value.

Forest Area Ecosociology Laboratory Overview

The research subject is to grasp the forest ecosystem and various inorganic and organic connections surrounding it, and to acquire knowledge for maintaining, managing, nurturing, and utilizing forests in relation to human society. Research to constantly and efficiently collect various information from the forest area and appropriately manage and analyze the information to provide the knowledge, substances, and space obtained from the forest area to human society in various forms. I do.

Forest Biological Function Laboratory Overview

The main research target is the life phenomena of forest organisms, and we will elucidate the phenomena at various levels such as tissues, cells, genes, and molecules. The purpose of this study is to explore the structure and function of various forest biological populations in various environments and their dynamics, focusing on the biological function, and to use them for the development of forest resource regeneration and utilization technologies. In addition, we aim to maintain the genetic diversity of forests and establish technology for preserving genetic resources, and also consider the utilization of forest gene resources by elucidating the structure and function of individual genes possessed by forest organisms.
