Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics

Leah R. Gerber mostly deals with Ecology, Prostate cancer, Prostate, Prostate-specific antigen and Internal medicine. The study incorporates disciplines such as Metastasis and Urology in addition to Prostate. Her Metastasis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Stromal cell, Cancer research, Immunology and Adenocarcinoma.

Her work deals with themes such as Odds ratio and Biopsy, which intersect with Prostate-specific antigen. Her study focuses on the intersection of Odds ratio and fields such as Endocrinology with connections in the field of Dutasteride and Risk factor. Leah R. Gerber studied Internal medicine and Oncology that intersect with Biochemical recurrence.

Her most cited work include:

  • Autonomic nerve development contributes to prostate cancer progression. (518 citations)
  • Autonomic nerve development contributes to prostate cancer progression. (518 citations)
  • Population models for marine reserve design: A retrospective and prospective synthesis (331 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Prostate cancer, Internal medicine, Ecology, Oncology and Prostate. Her Prostate cancer research includes themes of Biopsy and Gynecology. Within one scientific family, Leah R. Gerber focuses on topics pertaining to Body mass index under Gynecology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Obesity.

Internal medicine is closely attributed to Endocrinology in her research. Her Ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Population growth and Fishery. Her Prostatectomy study incorporates themes from Surgery, Retrospective cohort study and Urology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Prostate cancer (42.38%)
  • Internal medicine (37.92%)
  • Ecology (30.11%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Environmental planning (5.58%)
  • Biodiversity (3.35%)
  • Natural resource economics (2.23%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental planning, Biodiversity, Natural resource economics, Ecology and Environmental resource management. The Environmental planning study combines topics in areas such as Conservation science, Marine protected area and Sustainability. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sustainable development, Key, Nature Conservation and Ecosystem services.

Her Natural resource economics research incorporates elements of Endangered species, Emissions trading and Environmental protection. Her Ecology research is mostly focused on the topic Ecology. Her study in Environmental resource management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ecological systems theory, Ecosystem management and Marine reserve.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Foundations of translational ecology (103 citations)
  • Predicted growth in plastic waste exceeds efforts to mitigate plastic pollution. (73 citations)
  • Conservation triage or injurious neglect in endangered species recovery (62 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics

Environmental resource management, Ecology, Ecology, Endangered species and Natural resource economics are her primary areas of study. Her work on Marine conservation is typically connected to Context as part of general Environmental resource management study, connecting several disciplines of science. She has researched Marine conservation in several fields, including Global warming, Climate change, Ecological network and Marine reserve.

Her Ecology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Translational research. Her work carried out in the field of Endangered species brings together such families of science as Actuarial science and Extinction. Her Natural resource economics study frequently links to related topics such as Threatened species.
