Research:

I study the biodiversity science from various viewpoints using various study technique for a variety of target animals. My main target animals are Scarabaeoidea beetles. I research Scarabaeoidea beetles and other insects using biogeography, phylogeny, evolutionary and conservational approach in Japan, mainly Ryukyus, and Southeast Asia. In addition, I also study the entomophagy from the viewpoint of use of the biodiversity. On the other hand, I connected harmful wildlife management and animal welfare in zoo based on multidisciplinary approach. Furthermore, it is expected that the environmental educational program showed a carcass feeding of captured wild animals to large carnivorous in zoo to the park visitors is highly effective at social education.

Relevant Countries in Asia & Oceania:

Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia

Committee roles and Outreach activities:

Wild meǽt Zoo, Representative Director

Entomological Society of Japan

Coleopterological Society of Japan

Japanese Society of Scarabaeoidology, Officer

Message:

I want to plan the cooperation of the researcher across the research field, and to form the researcher team promoting the interdisciplinary study and education about the issue of current global environment.
