The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Salinity, Invertebrate, Ecosystem and Pesticide. Biodiversity and Pesticide toxicity are the primary areas of interest in his Ecology study. Ben J. Kefford usually deals with Biodiversity and limits it to topics linked to Soil salinity and Trophic level, STREAMS and Climate change.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Baetidae, Chironomidae, Physa and Animal science. His Invertebrate research incorporates elements of Taxon, Water quality and Ecotoxicology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Riffle, Environmental monitoring, Ecological indicator and Biomonitoring in addition to Water quality.
Ecology, Salinity, Invertebrate, Ecosystem and Environmental chemistry are his primary areas of study. Species richness, Pesticide, Biodiversity, Biomonitoring and Pesticide toxicity are the subjects of his Ecology studies. His Salinity study incorporates themes from Water quality, Physa and STREAMS.
His Invertebrate research integrates issues from Range, Taxon, Estuary, Freshwater ecosystem and Ecotoxicology. The various areas that Ben J. Kefford examines in his Ecosystem study include Biomass, Agronomy and Pollution. His study focuses on the intersection of Environmental chemistry and fields such as Biota with connections in the field of Biotic index.
His main research concerns Ecology, Invertebrate, Salinity, Environmental chemistry and Malathion. In his works, he conducts interdisciplinary research on Ecology and Management practices. His Invertebrate research incorporates themes from Water quality, Freshwater ecosystem and DNA barcoding.
He interconnects Ecotoxicology, Aquatic insect and Ecosystem in the investigation of issues within Salinity. The concepts of his Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Global change and Soil salinity. His Environmental chemistry research includes themes of Metal toxicity, Biota and Effluent.
Ben J. Kefford mainly focuses on Ecology, Salinity, Ecosystem, Abundance and Species richness. In general Ecology study, his work on Ecosystem management and Water quality often relates to the realm of Stressor, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Ecosystem management study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Global change, Ecosystem level and Soil salinity.
The Water quality study combines topics in areas such as Diatom, Benthic zone and Biomonitoring. His Biomonitoring study combines topics in areas such as Aquatic ecosystem and Wet season. Many of his studies on Abundance involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Mayfly.
