Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List
  • Predation

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Foraging, Seabird, Predation and Wandering albatross. His Ecology research includes themes of Zoology and Fishery. His Foraging research integrates issues from Satellite tracking, Oceanography, Pelagic zone, Nest and Spatial distribution.

His research in Seabird intersects with topics in Snow, Isotope analysis and Reproductive success. His work in Predation covers topics such as Habitat which are related to areas like Spatial ecology. His research on Wandering albatross also deals with topics like

  • Fishing together with Threatened species,
  • Dynamic soaring and related Satellite telemetry and Tracking.

His most cited work include:

  • Satellite tracking of Wandering albatrosses (407 citations)
  • Are seabirds foraging for unpredictable resources (392 citations)
  • Migratory shearwaters integrate oceanic resources across the Pacific Ocean in an endless summer. (379 citations)

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

Henri Weimerskirch mostly deals with Ecology, Foraging, Seabird, Fishery and Predation. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Zoology and Ecology. The Foraging study combines topics in areas such as Range, Seasonal breeder, Juvenile, Pelagic zone and Nest.

Henri Weimerskirch combines subjects such as Fledge, Oceanography and Apex predator with his study of Seabird. His work in Fishery addresses issues such as Threatened species, which are connected to fields such as Endangered species. His Predation study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Trophic level.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (64.81%)
  • Foraging (45.37%)
  • Seabird (30.56%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Foraging (45.37%)
  • Fishery (23.38%)
  • Seabird (30.56%)

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

Henri Weimerskirch focuses on Foraging, Fishery, Seabird, Zoology and Predation. His Foraging study is concerned with the larger field of Ecology. The concepts of his Ecology study are interwoven with issues in Disease and Immunity.

His Fishery research incorporates themes from Climate change and Threatened species. His studies in Seabird integrate themes in fields like Ornithology and Seascape. His studies examine the connections between Predation and genetics, as well as such issues in Range, with regards to Booby.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Tracking of marine predators to protect Southern Ocean ecosystems (33 citations)
  • Is telomere length a molecular marker of individual quality? Insights from a long‐lived bird (25 citations)
  • The importance of migratory connectivity for global ocean policy (23 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • IUCN Red List
  • Statistics

His primary scientific interests are in Fishery, Foraging, Zoology, Seabird and Climate change. His Fishery research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Climate change mitigation, Threatened species and Dynamic soaring. His work carried out in the field of Foraging brings together such families of science as Evolutionary biology, Juvenile and Body size.

Henri Weimerskirch studies Seabird, focusing on Wandering albatross in particular. The study incorporates disciplines such as Population growth, Biological dispersal and Greenhouse gas in addition to Climate change. Henri Weimerskirch focuses mostly in the field of Fishing, narrowing it down to matters related to Continental shelf and, in some cases, Predation.
