Self-introduction
Recently, substantial changes are occurring in the seas and/or coasts around the world. By visiting the sites of changes and through researching the extensive environmental changes from the view point of microorganisms, especially, phytoplankton or microalgae which are foundation of the all marine ecosystems, sustainable management of the environments have been pursued.
