Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Surgery

John S. Terblanche mainly investigates Ecology, Surgery, Phenotypic plasticity, Acclimatization and Varices. His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Adaptation, Ecology, Climate change and Range, overlaps with other areas such as Trait. The study incorporates disciplines such as Internal medicine and Clinical trial in addition to Surgery.

His research in Phenotypic plasticity intersects with topics in Glossinidae, Ceratitis capitata, Animal science and Ectotherm. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Isotoma, Diurnal temperature variation, Moss, Cryptopygus and Diel vertical migration. His work deals with themes such as Injection sclerotherapy, Esophageal varices, Sclerotherapy and Venous plexus, which intersect with Varices.

His most cited work include:

  • Physiological Diversity in Insects: Ecological and Evolutionary Contexts. (408 citations)
  • A new look at the arterial supply of the bile duct in man and its surgical implications. (367 citations)
  • Preoperative external biliary drainage in obstructive jaundice. A prospective controlled clinical trial. (365 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Surgery, Ecology, Internal medicine, Phenotypic plasticity and Acclimatization. His study in Surgery is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Varix, Varices and Portal hypertension. His work in the fields of Climate change, Range and Adaptation overlaps with other areas such as Context.

His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gastroenterology and Endocrinology. His Phenotypic plasticity study frequently links to related topics such as Ceratitis capitata. His Sclerotherapy research includes elements of Injection sclerotherapy and Variceal bleeding.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Surgery (32.09%)
  • Ecology (27.54%)
  • Internal medicine (16.31%)

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

  • Ecology (27.54%)
  • Insect (5.08%)
  • Larva (4.01%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Insect, Larva, Climate change and Range. His Ecology and Ecological niche, Invasive species, Global warming, Ecology and Adaptation investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities. His Adaptation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental change and Phenotypic plasticity.

John S. Terblanche has researched Larva in several fields, including PEST analysis, Horticulture and Zoology. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Diapause and Ectotherm. His research investigates the connection between Botany and topics such as Animal science that intersect with issues in Body water and Thermoregulation.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • What Can Plasticity Contribute to Insect Responses to Climate Change (200 citations)
  • Does oxygen limit thermal tolerance in arthropods? A critical review of current evidence. (163 citations)
  • A global assessment of climatic niche shifts and human influence in insect invasions (45 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Surgery

John S. Terblanche focuses on Ecology, Invasive species, Desiccation, Ceratitis capitata and Botany. Insect, Adaptation, Ecology, Climate change and Ecological niche are the primary areas of interest in his Ecology study. His Adaptation research incorporates themes from Introduced species, Drosophila subobscura and Phenotypic plasticity.

His research integrates issues of Respiratory physiology, Respiratory Physiological Phenomena, Ecosystem, Local adaptation and Ectotherm in his study of Ecology. The various areas that John S. Terblanche examines in his Invasive species study include Agriculture, Biosecurity, Arthropod and Environmental planning. His Botany study incorporates themes from Basal metabolic rate and Hypoxia.
