What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Host, Ecosystem, Zoology and Wildlife. His study in Parasitism, Biodiversity, Ecology, Macroparasite and Endangered species falls within the category of Ecology. Andrew P. Dobson combines subjects such as Red grouse, Grouse, Trichostrongylus tenuis, Population density and Abundance with his study of Host.

Andrew P. Dobson has included themes like Biomass, Restoration ecology and Food chain in his Ecosystem study. Many of his research projects under Zoology are closely connected to West african with West african, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Andrew P. Dobson interconnects Rabies transmission, Outbreak, Rabies, Basic reproduction number and Vaccination in the investigation of issues within Wildlife.

His most cited work include:

  • Forecasting agriculturally driven global environmental change (2758 citations)
  • Climate Warming and Disease Risks for Terrestrial and Marine Biota (1889 citations)
  • Introduced species and their missing parasites (1078 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Andrew P. Dobson mostly deals with Ecology, Host, Zoology, Biodiversity and Wildlife. Ecology, Ecosystem, Range, Habitat and Climate change are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His work in Ecosystem addresses subjects such as Trophic level, which are connected to disciplines such as Food chain.

His Host research incorporates themes from Population density, Pathogen, Abundance and Virulence. His work carried out in the field of Virulence brings together such families of science as Immune system and Virology. His Environmental planning research extends to Biodiversity, which is thematically connected.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (58.38%)
  • Host (15.08%)
  • Zoology (13.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Host (15.08%)
  • Ecology (58.38%)
  • Immune system (4.19%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Andrew P. Dobson mainly investigates Host, Ecology, Immune system, Virulence and Virology. His Host research incorporates elements of Zoology, Blood meal, Pathogen and Trypanosoma cruzi. His Ecology study often links to related topics such as Vital rates.

His Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Parasite Infections, Helminth infections and Vaccination. His Virology research includes elements of Phenotype and Cell culture. The Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Biomass, Mammal, Spatial heterogeneity and Seasonality.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ecology and economics for pandemic prevention. (81 citations)
  • Pathogen spillover during land conversion. (65 citations)
  • Pneumonia in bighorn sheep: Risk and resilience (42 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Virus

Andrew P. Dobson spends much of his time researching Biodiversity, Pathogen, Host, Ecology and Ecology. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Introduced species, Protected area, Generalist and specialist species and Ecosystem services. His Pathogen research includes themes of Immunity, Immunological memory, Host immunity and Mycoplasma gallisepticum.

His work deals with themes such as Immune system and Virulence, which intersect with Host. His Ecology study incorporates themes from Coinfection, Mammal and Species richness. In his articles, Andrew P. Dobson combines various disciplines, including Ecology and Spillover effect.
