Selected PublicationsTomohiro Ichinose is a Japanese scientific researcher, who was born in Chiba, Japan on 23th July 1968. He took the degree of master from the Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, the University of Tokyo. From October 1996 to September 1998 he studied as a visiting researcher at Munich Technical University. He got the degree of Ph.D (agriculture) from the Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, the University of Tokyo in March 1997. The doctoral dissertation title is "Methods of Environmental Evaluation for Avian Conservation". At that time, he focused on the relationship between bird distribution and environmental factors (ex. land use types, vegetation structure, forest fragmentation and so on). After that, he became an assistant professor, later associate professor, at the Institute of Natural and Environmental Sciences, University of Hyogo. He investigated dragonfly and damselfly species on water storage ponds in Awaji Island and bird species diversity in a city center of Nishinomiya and Osaka City, and analyzed long-term land use changes in Awaji Island. Now, he is a professor at Shonan Fujisawa Campus (SFC), Keio University. Recently, he has some projects about ecological network planning methods in metropolitan Cities, landscape changes in suburban and rural areas, depopulation and aging problem in remote areas of Japan. Since the great disaster on 11th March 2011 he has supported the reconstruction of Kesennuma City with students and teachers of SFC, which was heavily damaged in the city center by the huge tsunami. He was a guest researcher at Vienna University of Technology from September 2012 to August 2013 and guest professor at the Department of Asian and North African Studies, Ca’Foscari University Venice from December 2012 to March 2013.
