Project Year: 2005 - 2007    Investigator(s): Masahiro OHARA
Indonesia is attractive to the students of evolution for a number of reasons. It occupies a central part of Asian tropics, which is known to harbor the world's richest and most diverse fauna and flora. Furthermore, it consists of many islands that...
Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology: Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(A))
Project Year: 2002 - 2005    Investigator(s): Haruo KATAKURA
We tested the hypothesis that phytophagous insects speciate sympatrically through an intermediate state called "host races," using epilachnine ladybird beetles and Chrysolina leaf beetles as the research materials. The main results are :1. On the ...
