The Shefferson Lab is the Plant/Fungal Evolutionary Ecology Lab at the University of Tokyo's Organization for Programs in Environmental Science and Dept. of General Systems Studies. We study the eco-evolutionary dynamics and context of plants and fungi, with a particular focus on long-lived herbaceous perennials, such as orchids.

東京大学 広域システム科学系OPESにある4つの進化生態学研究室のうち、植物と菌類の進化生態学を扱うのがシェファーソン研です。私たちは、特に寿命の長い植物種とそれらに共生する菌類に注目して、植物と菌類のエコエボリューショナリーダイナミックスに関する研究をしています。国内留学に興味をお持ちの学部生・大学院生・ポスドクのみなさん、ご連絡をお待ちしております!
