Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

His primary scientific interests are in Hydrology, Genetics, Erosion, Soil science and Macropore. His work carried out in the field of Hydrology brings together such families of science as Decision tree, Soil map, Structural basin and Rule induction. His research combines Wild boar and Genetics.

His studies in Erosion integrate themes in fields like Sediment transport, Surface runoff and WEPP. His work on Soil water as part of general Soil science research is often related to Limiting, thus linking different fields of science. Gene map, Genetic linkage, Gene mapping, Candidate gene and Complete linkage is closely connected to Microsatellite in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Quantitative trait locus.

His most cited work include:

  • The PiGMaP consortium linkage map of the pig (Sus scrofa). (402 citations)
  • Three crocodilian genomes reveal ancestral patterns of evolution among archosaurs (234 citations)
  • Large-scale patterns of erosion and sediment transport in river networks, with examples from Australia (226 citations)

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

Chris Moran spends much of his time researching Genetics, Hydrology, Quantitative trait locus, Soil science and Environmental planning. Genetics and Molecular biology are commonly linked in his work. His Hydrology research focuses on Erosion in particular.

His Erosion study incorporates themes from Sediment transport, Sediment and Surface runoff. His work on Bulk density and Soil structure is typically connected to Macropore as part of general Soil science study, connecting several disciplines of science. His Environmental planning study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sustainability and Coal mining.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (22.44%)
  • Hydrology (14.96%)
  • Quantitative trait locus (8.66%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2017)?

  • Environmental resource management (6.30%)
  • Natural resource economics (3.94%)
  • Sustainability (5.51%)

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

Chris Moran mainly focuses on Environmental resource management, Natural resource economics, Sustainability, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Genetics. He has included themes like Structural basin, Environmental economics, Sustainability organizations and Environmental planning in his Environmental resource management study. His Sustainability research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Resource, Knowledge management and Sustainable development.

His study in Land use, land-use change and forestry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Deforestation, Subsidy and Land management. While working in this field, Chris Moran studies both Genetics and Statistical analysis. His Quantitative trait locus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Logistic regression and Computational biology.

Between 2011 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Three crocodilian genomes reveal ancestral patterns of evolution among archosaurs (234 citations)
  • Designing mine tailings for better environmental, social and economic outcomes: a review of alternative approaches (192 citations)
  • Sequencing three crocodilian genomes to illuminate the evolution of archosaurs and amniotes (121 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

Environmental resource management, Sustainability, Deforestation, Sustainable development and Natural resource economics are his primary areas of study. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Capital, Pastoralism and Environmental planning. His Sustainability study combines topics in areas such as Natural, Structural basin, Resource and Energy supply and demand.

His Deforestation research includes elements of Urban expansion, Land management, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Charcoal. Chris Moran interconnects Corporate social responsibility, Intergenerational equity, Sustainability organizations and Secondary sector of the economy in the investigation of issues within Sustainable development. His research on Ecology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Zoology.
