Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List
  • Genus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Uria lomvia, Arctic, Predation and Seabird. His studies in Ecology integrate themes in fields like Sea ice and Reproductive success. His Uria lomvia research incorporates themes from Fledge, Zoology, Oceanography and Vital rates.

His Arctic research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Aquatic environment, Debris, Climate change and Population model. Anthony J. Gaston interconnects Habitat, Aegithalos caudatus, Nest, Flock and Woodland in the investigation of issues within Predation. In his study, Capelin is strongly linked to Fishery, which falls under the umbrella field of Seabird.

His most cited work include:

  • The Petrels: Their Ecology and Breeding Systems (746 citations)
  • The Evolution of Group Territorial Behavior and Cooperative Breeding (294 citations)
  • Individual specialization in diet by a generalist marine predator reflects specialization in foraging behaviour (214 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Uria lomvia, Arctic, Seabird and Zoology. His study ties his expertise on Reproductive success together with the subject of Ecology. Anthony J. Gaston usually deals with Uria lomvia and limits it to topics linked to Bay and Capelin.

His Arctic study combines topics in areas such as Sea ice, Climate change, Fishery and Northern fulmar. In the field of Seabird, his study on Rissa tridactyla overlaps with subjects such as Ornithology. His research in Zoology tackles topics such as Synthliboramphus which are related to areas like Colombie britannique.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (64.60%)
  • Uria lomvia (42.92%)
  • Arctic (30.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2020)?

  • Ecology (64.60%)
  • Arctic (30.53%)
  • Uria lomvia (42.92%)

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

Anthony J. Gaston focuses on Ecology, Arctic, Uria lomvia, Seabird and Zoology. His Fishery research extends to the thematically linked field of Ecology. His work investigates the relationship between Fishery and topics such as Synthliboramphus that intersect with problems in China.

His work carried out in the field of Arctic brings together such families of science as Fulmar, Climate change, North Atlantic oscillation and Environmental protection. His Uria lomvia research includes themes of Bay, Rissa tridactyla, Pelagic zone, Kittiwake and Food web. His Seabird study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Habitat and Wildlife.

Between 2010 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Multicolony tracking reveals the winter distribution of a pelagic seabird on an ocean basin scale (120 citations)
  • High flight costs, but low dive costs, in auks support the biomechanical hypothesis for flightlessness in penguins (111 citations)
  • Seabird diet indicates changing Arctic marine communities in eastern Canada. (61 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List
  • Genus

Anthony J. Gaston mainly focuses on Ecology, Uria lomvia, Seabird, Arctic and Rissa tridactyla. Anthony J. Gaston regularly ties together related areas like Reproductive success in his Ecology studies. His Uria lomvia research incorporates elements of Basal metabolic rate, Seasonal breeder, Pelagic zone and Physiology.

He has included themes like Congener, Fishery and Habitat in his Seabird study. His Arctic research includes elements of Fulmar, Bay, Wildlife, Climate change and Food web. His work in Rissa tridactyla addresses subjects such as Kittiwake, which are connected to disciplines such as Animal ecology.
