Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Photosynthesis
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Botany, Benthic zone, Oceanography and Photosynthesis. Ecology is represented through his Macrophyte, Algae, Littoral zone, Nutrient and Habitat research. His study in Benthic zone is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Microbial mat, Biomass, Ice shelf, Water column and Plankton.

His research in Water column tackles topics such as Atmospheric sciences which are related to areas like Vanda, Photosynthetically active radiation and Downwelling. His work carried out in the field of Oceanography brings together such families of science as Phytoplankton, Benthic primary production and Freshwater ecosystem. The Photosynthesis study combines topics in areas such as Environmental chemistry, Desiccation and Respiration.

His most cited work include:

  • Diversity within cyanobacterial mat communities in variable salinity meltwater ponds of McMurdo Ice Shelf, Antarctica (214 citations)
  • Relationships between water level fluctuations and vegetation diversity in shallow water of New Zealand lakes (147 citations)
  • ANTARCTIC AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS AS HABITATS FOR PHYTOPLANKTON (117 citations)

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

Ian Hawes spends much of his time researching Ecology, Oceanography, Microbial mat, Photosynthesis and Benthic zone. His Oceanography research incorporates elements of Meltwater and Phytoplankton. The various areas that Ian Hawes examines in his Microbial mat study include Vanda and Stromatolite.

His Photosynthesis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Environmental chemistry and Atmospheric sciences. Ian Hawes works mostly in the field of Benthic zone, limiting it down to topics relating to Water column and, in certain cases, Anoxic waters, Sediment and Nutrient, as a part of the same area of interest. Ian Hawes works mostly in the field of Biomass, limiting it down to concerns involving Trophic state index and, occasionally, Littoral zone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (36.18%)
  • Oceanography (32.16%)
  • Microbial mat (21.11%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecology (36.18%)
  • Microbial mat (21.11%)
  • Benthic zone (19.60%)

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

Ian Hawes mainly focuses on Ecology, Microbial mat, Benthic zone, Biodiversity and Oceanography. His work in Habitat, Ecosystem, Diatom, Species richness and Nutrient are all subfields of Ecology research. Ian Hawes has researched Microbial mat in several fields, including Vanda, Botany, Verrucomicrobia, Stromatolite and Community structure.

Ian Hawes combines subjects such as Environmental chemistry, Mesocosm, Relative species abundance and Dissolved inorganic nitrogen with his study of Benthic zone. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ice shelf, Freshwater ecosystem, Meltwater, Species distribution and RGB color model. His Oceanography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Photogrammetry and Geomorphology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Characteristics, main impacts, and stewardship of natural and artificial freshwater environments: consequences for biodiversity conservation (52 citations)
  • Contrasting cyanobacterial communities and microcystin concentrations in summers with extreme weather events: insights into potential effects of climate change (40 citations)
  • Microbial Communities and Their Predicted Metabolic Functions in Growth Laminae of a Unique Large Conical Mat from Lake Untersee, East Antarctica (25 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Photosynthesis

Ian Hawes mainly investigates Ecology, Microbial mat, Oceanography, Biodiversity and Tetrodotoxin. Ecology and Actinobacteria are commonly linked in his work. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Botany, Environmental change, Sedimentation, Stromatolite and Geomorphology.

His Oceanography research includes elements of Glacial period, Period and Spring. His Biodiversity study also includes fields such as

  • Freshwater ecosystem which connect with Foundation species, Threatened species, Wetland, Overexploitation and Habitat,
  • Ecosystem which connect with Productivity, Ecology and Chlorophyll a. His work in Nutrient addresses issues such as Microcystis, which are connected to fields such as Water column.
