I would like to live up to this honorable grant and do research that will contribute to science.
I proposed the “diversity of biological rhythm” hypothesis as a new mechanism for coexistence of diverse organisms. On the earth, there are periodic environmental changes such as day, moon, and year due to the relationship with the sun and the moon. It is theoretically shown that the diverse biological rhythms of living things adapted to these can maintain the coexistence (natural balance) of living things. It has been found that the unique rhythm (polyrhythm) generated by the combination of multiple different biological rhythms weakens biological activities or interactions between organisms and promotes the coexistence of living organisms. This theory provides a new view of nature that connects chronobiology and ecology.
