Research Interest

Plants with sessile nature fascinate Prof. Hideyuki Takahashi by showing ability to control their growth and development in response to environmental cues such as light (day-length), water, mechanical stimuli and gravity, which play critical roles for their survival. Prof. Takahashi's accomplishments include clarification of the mechanistic aspects of sex differentiation of cucurbit flowers, hydrotropism in roots, and plant responses to gravity and mechanical perturbation. Today, space environment is utilized for the study of the gravity-influenced phenomena. He has been devoted to plant space biology for a long time and conducted four spaceflight experiments in Space Shuttle and International Space Station. Recently, Prof. Takahashi has started fundamental studies to grow plants in a plant/food production system for human space habitation.
