Guiding Young Scholars in Order to Integrate Their Various Research into Landscape Ecology

  • Nobukazu Nakagoshi


The scientific contributions especially landscape ecological efforts of the author were described in three significant periods. The three periods were symbolized as “stone,” “scissors,” and “paper” ecology, respectively. The first period was a challenging time for new findings on soil seed banks in forests. In the later periods, the author and his colleagues and students attempted to publish research efforts in landscape ecology. As for the recollections of these scientific contributions, the author explained several important publications and classified them into fields of subjects separated from landscape ecology. The total number of selected publications was 147, including 6 books, 13 chapter articles, and 128 journal papers. The last period continues up to present. However, its early years strongly depended on big financial support by the Japanese government. The author made several comments on these two big projects in relation to graduate school education programs and ecological efforts. Finally, future aspects of landscape ecology were suggested from the author’s view.



I thank all my colleagues and alumni students during my research life, especially those who proceeded the ecological studies, including landscape ecology, with me. This chapter is one of my recollections. I was born on September 11, 1951, in Hiroshima, Japan. My birthday and birthplace were certainly coincidences. However, I always pray for peace to sustain through scientific works. In that sense, I deeply express gratitude to Professors R. T. T. Forman, W. Haber, Z. Naveh, M. Numata, M. Ruzicka, and I. S. Zonneveld and the other senior landscape ecologists who made me realize the importance of landscape ecology.
