This is a personal website of Dr. Yu Ito, a Japanese botanist who graduated with his PhD from the University of Tokyo, Japan. After working as postdocs in Hungary (2010-2011), Cadana (2011-2012), and Denmark (2012), Dr. Ito has currently been working at University of Canterbury, New Zealand for another postdoc.

Since the begining of his research carrer, he has consistently been working on the taxonomy and systematics of several aquatic plants, such as Najas, Potamogeton, Ruppia, and Zannichellia. In relation to the specific research topics, Dr. Ito has extensive field experiences in Asia, Australasia, Europe, and N. America, and floras of Myanmar and Thailand are among particular interest.
