I am a professor of Field Science Center for Northern Biosphere, Hokkaido University located in Sapporo, Japan. My research interest involves biogeochemistry, soil and water quality in forest ecosystem. I am recently working on ecosystem functions and services in forest under changing environments, and on nitrogen footprint assessment as environment indicators of human activities. I am also in charge of Graduate School of Environmental Science (Course of Forest Conservation) for education of graduate students.
Book publication (Methods of forest biogeochemistry in forest catchment)
Whole-landscape train in research forest (Web education tools)
Text books publication on "Forest and soil", "Forest and material cycles" for students and young researchers
International projects | Training courses
International training course of ecosystem nitrogen cycles was conducted as a program of ILTER network. See the above highlight movie.
International workshop on nitrogen footprint, indicator of nitrogen loss to the environment as a result of food and energy consumption, was taken place in March 2015.
