Saori Fuji

I am a researcher in soil ecology and have an interest in both biological community and nutrient cycling. My current focus is to link biotic and abiotic components to understand ecosystem processes. I’m thinking that tiny springtails, which are dominant microbivores around the world, can be a key organism to link soil food webs and nutrient cycles. I expect that clarifying resource utilization of ubiquitous springtails leads to gaining new insight into the mechanisms underlying processes in terrestrial ecosystems.
