John Cairns mainly focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Toxicity, Molecular biology and DNA. His study in Aquatic organisms, Single species, Bioindicator, Ecotoxicology and Ecology is done as part of Ecology. He has researched Ecosystem in several fields, including Aquatic environment, Microcosm, Environmental resource management and Environmental protection.
John Cairns combines subjects such as Pesticide, Acclimatization, Botany and Pharmacology with his study of Toxicity. His Molecular biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mutation, Thymine, Thymidine and Escherichia coli. His DNA research incorporates elements of Cell, Nucleic acid and Virology.
John Cairns mainly investigates Ecology, Sustainability, Environmental resource management, Environmental chemistry and Climate change. His work in Ecology is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Animal science. His studies deal with areas such as Natural capital, Ecosystem services, Environmental planning, Sustainable development and Environmental ethics as well as Sustainability.
His Environmental chemistry research includes elements of Toxicity and Effluent. His work carried out in the field of Climate change brings together such families of science as Population growth, Natural resource economics and Greenhouse gas. As part of his studies on Ecosystem, he often connects relevant subjects like Aquatic ecosystem.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Climate change, Sustainability, Ecology, Environmental resource management and Global warming. His Climate change research includes themes of Climatology, Overpopulation, Natural resource economics, Greenhouse gas and Population growth. He has included themes like Fossil fuel, Tipping point, Carbon dioxide and Environmental protection in his Greenhouse gas study.
In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Sustainability, Socioeconomics is strongly linked to Environmental ethics. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Extinction. John Cairns incorporates Environmental resource management and Natural in his studies.
His main research concerns Sustainability, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Natural resource economics and Climate change. The concepts of his Sustainability study are interwoven with issues in Population growth, Lifeboat ethics and Environmental planning. John Cairns conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Ecology and Scirpus cyperinus through his research.
His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Life support system and Natural capital. His Natural resource economics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fossil fuel, Per capita, Peak oil and Greenhouse gas. His Climate change research focuses on subjects like Biodiversity, which are linked to Refugee, Energy allocation, Resource depletion and Development economics.
