Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Seagrass

James W. Fourqurean mostly deals with Seagrass, Ecology, Bay, Thalassia testudinum and Oceanography. His studies deal with areas such as Standing crop and Fishery as well as Seagrass. His Ecology research focuses on subjects like Respiration, which are linked to Animal science, Temperate climate and Primary production.

His work deals with themes such as Hydrology, Water quality, Estuary and Salinity, which intersect with Bay. His Thalassia testudinum research focuses on Botany and how it relates to Phosphorus limitation. His Oceanography study incorporates themes from Isotopes of nitrogen, Nutrient and Groundwater.

His most cited work include:

  • Accelerating loss of seagrasses across the globe threatens coastal ecosystems (2113 citations)
  • A Global Crisis for Seagrass Ecosystems (1932 citations)
  • Seagrass ecosystems as a globally significant carbon stock (828 citations)

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

James W. Fourqurean mainly focuses on Seagrass, Ecology, Oceanography, Ecosystem and Thalassia testudinum. The concepts of his Seagrass study are interwoven with issues in Benthic zone, Fishery, Bay and Nutrient. James W. Fourqurean combines subjects such as Subtropics, Halodule and Seasonality with his study of Oceanography.

James W. Fourqurean has researched Ecosystem in several fields, including Climate change and Herbivore. His study in Thalassia testudinum is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Productivity, Standing crop and Botany. In his research on the topic of Blue carbon, Environmental protection is strongly related with Greenhouse gas.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seagrass (73.80%)
  • Ecology (57.22%)
  • Oceanography (33.16%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Seagrass (73.80%)
  • Ecosystem (36.36%)
  • Blue carbon (16.04%)

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

James W. Fourqurean mainly investigates Seagrass, Ecosystem, Blue carbon, Climate change and Ecology. His Seagrass research integrates issues from Eddy covariance, Oceanography, Bay and Fishery. Many of his studies on Oceanography involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Thalassia testudinum.

His Blue carbon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Environmental chemistry, Total organic carbon and Greenhouse gas. His study looks at the relationship between Climate change and topics such as Marine ecosystem, which overlap with Temperate climate, Amphibolis antarctica, Halodule uninervis and Abiotic component. He incorporates Ecology and Holobiont in his research.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A marine heatwave drives massive losses from the world’s largest seagrass carbon stocks (123 citations)
  • A marine heatwave drives massive losses from the world’s largest seagrass carbon stocks (123 citations)
  • Natural climate solutions for the United States (98 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Climate change

James W. Fourqurean focuses on Climate change, Ecosystem, Blue carbon, Seagrass and Environmental protection. In most of his Blue carbon studies, his work intersects topics such as Oceanography. As part of his inquiry into Ecology and Habitat, he is doing Seagrass research.

His research integrates issues of Forest management, Climate change mitigation, Greenhouse gas, Disturbance and Biogeochemistry in his study of Environmental protection. The study incorporates disciplines such as Total inorganic carbon and Total organic carbon in addition to Carbon sequestration. His Global warming research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Amphibolis, Fishery and Bay.
