From 2009 to 2014, our lab was a part of Teshio Experimental Forest of Hokkaido University, which is the northernmost forest of Japanese University. In the Teshio Experimental forest, we have one experimental room and three semi-natural artificial ponds and several tens of natural ponds. Using these ponds, we have accomplished our experimental projects. On April 2015, we moved to Tomakomai Experimental Forests of Hokkaido University and thus, we will expands our research by effectively utilizing Tomakomai Experimental Forest as well as Teshio Experimental Forest.
Hokkaido University has seven experimental forests in Japan (i.e., Teshio, Nakagawa, Uryu, Sapporo, Tomakomai, Hiyama, and Wakayama). Researchers can set their experimental sites and field work plots in our experimental forests. Please let me know if you are interests in our experimental forests.
