Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Coral reef

His main research concerns Ecology, Coral reef, Reef, Coral reef fish and Biodiversity. Ecology is a component of his Aquaculture of coral, Ecosystem, Habitat, Biogeography and Coral reef protection studies. David R. Bellwood specializes in Coral reef, namely Resilience of coral reefs.

His study on Parrotfish is often connected to Geography as part of broader study in Reef. As a part of the same scientific study, David R. Bellwood usually deals with the Coral reef fish, concentrating on Biological dispersal and frequently concerns with Pelagic zone. David R. Bellwood interconnects Indo-Pacific, Endemism, Species richness and Species diversity in the investigation of issues within Biodiversity.

His most cited work include:

  • Climate Change, Human Impacts, and the Resilience of Coral Reefs (2851 citations)
  • Confronting the coral reef crisis (2375 citations)
  • Global warming and recurrent mass bleaching of corals (1241 citations)

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

David R. Bellwood mainly focuses on Ecology, Coral reef, Reef, Coral reef fish and Fishery. David R. Bellwood focuses mostly in the field of Coral reef, narrowing it down to matters related to Biomass and, in some cases, Productivity. The concepts of his Reef study are interwoven with issues in Range, Abundance, Sediment and Species richness.

David R. Bellwood combines subjects such as Trophic level, Ecomorphology and Pelagic zone with his study of Coral reef fish. His study on Fringing reef and Fishing is often connected to Geography as part of broader study in Fishery. He has included themes like Environmental issues with coral reefs and Aquaculture of coral in his Resilience of coral reefs study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (80.70%)
  • Coral reef (74.56%)
  • Reef (54.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Coral reef (74.56%)
  • Ecology (80.70%)
  • Reef (54.68%)

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

David R. Bellwood spends much of his time researching Coral reef, Ecology, Reef, Coral reef fish and Ecosystem. Coral reef is a subfield of Fishery that he investigates. David R. Bellwood performs multidisciplinary studies into Ecology and Geography in his work.

His Reef research focuses on Biodiversity and how it relates to Biological dispersal. His work carried out in the field of Coral reef fish brings together such families of science as Benthos, Species richness, Pelagic zone and Chaetodon. As a part of the same scientific family, David R. Bellwood mostly works in the field of Ecosystem, focusing on Anthropocene and, on occasion, Environmental resource management.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global warming and recurrent mass bleaching of corals (1241 citations)
  • Coral reefs in the Anthropocene (622 citations)
  • The meaning of the term 'function' in ecology: a coral reef perspective (77 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Coral reef

His primary scientific interests are in Coral reef, Reef, Ecology, Coral reef fish and Ecosystem. His work on Resilience of coral reefs as part of general Coral reef study is frequently connected to Geography, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Resilience of coral reefs research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Benthos, Dominance and Montipora capitata, Coral bleaching.

His studies in Reef integrate themes in fields like Biodiversity, Coral and Ecosystem services. As part of one scientific family, David R. Bellwood deals mainly with the area of Ecology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Sediment, and often Algae and Ctenochaetus. His Coral reef fish research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biomass, Trophic level, Species richness and Pelagic zone.
