AppealI have studied about fish ecology throughout all of my academic career. I am interested in the prediction of the distribution and species interaction among fishes based on the relationship between physiological properties of fish and environmental condition. In our project, I am now tracking the habitat usage and behavior of common carp by using ratio telemetry. The interaction between the ecological feature of carp and infection/onset of infectious diseases is expected to be clarified through the examination on the condition dependent behavior of carp in the wild.
