1.Dynamics of seaweed communities on the rocky shore

Seaweed beds consisted of large brown algae are ecologically and fishery important ecosystems. I am studying the seaweeds beds dynamics and its relationship with herbivorous species, environmental factors, and coastal urbanization based on a field survey.

2.Connection among seaweed beds

“Moving” methods for seaweeds are microscopic spores released to seawater and drifting drop-offed leaves, but it is difficult to track themselves underwater. I am trying to reveal the connectivity among seaweed beds based on the analysis of population genetic structure, and it could be applied to the seaweed beds restoration technique and the explanation of the mechanism of seaweed bed formation.
