Research Fields I have conducted research on the diverse relationships between people and wildlife in forest areas in the southeastern part of the Republic of Guinea, West Africa. With focus on latent potential on forest and wildlife conservation, which the traditional landscape of the communities based on shifting agriculture has maintained, I am studying conservation ecology of inhabitant animals, analyzing the composition and causes of traditionally conserved forest, and attempting to grasp the future vision of residents’ conservation plans.
