2022 - Research.com Ecology and Evolution in South Africa Leader Award
Alan K. Whitfield focuses on Ecology, Estuary, Fishery, Habitat and Oceanography. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Environmental resource management. His Estuary research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Taxon, Abundance, Ecosystem and Rhabdosargus holubi.
His Fishery research includes themes of Macrophyte, Range, Salinity and Sarotherodon. His work deals with themes such as Protected area and Juvenile fish, which intersect with Habitat. His study in the fields of Brackish water, Sea level rise, Tidal prism and Hydrography under the domain of Oceanography overlaps with other disciplines such as Scale.
Alan K. Whitfield mainly investigates Estuary, Ecology, Fishery, Habitat and Abundance. His Estuary research is classified as research in Oceanography. His study in Macrophyte, Ecosystem, Benthic zone, Temperate climate and Species diversity are all subfields of Ecology.
His Fishery research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Range, Littoral zone, Juvenile and Biomass. His research investigates the link between Habitat and topics such as Intertidal zone that cross with problems in Zostera. The various areas that Alan K. Whitfield examines in his Rhabdosargus holubi study include Species richness and Zostera capensis.
Alan K. Whitfield spends much of his time researching Estuary, Ecology, Fishery, Habitat and Macrophyte. His Estuary research is included under the broader classification of Oceanography. His study explores the link between Ecology and topics such as Fish species that cross with problems in Global change and Estuarine fish.
The Fishery study combines topics in areas such as Range, Juvenile, Ecosystem and Rhabdosargus holubi. His Habitat research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Syngnathus watermeyeri, Pipefish and Juvenile fish. His studies in Macrophyte integrate themes in fields like Invertebrate, Algal bloom, Fish kill and Ficopomatus enigmaticus.
Alan K. Whitfield mainly focuses on Estuary, Ecology, Fishery, Habitat and Seagrass. His Estuary study deals with the bigger picture of Oceanography. His work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Syngnathus watermeyeri and Pipefish.
Alan K. Whitfield has included themes like Macrophyte, Syngnathidae, Critically endangered and Range in his Fishery study. Alan K. Whitfield combines subjects such as Ontogeny, Freshwater mullet, Detritivore, Predation and Channel with his study of Habitat. His Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Habitat destruction, Relative species abundance, Threatened species and Rhabdosargus holubi.
