Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Virus
  • IUCN Red List

Lee F. Skerratt focuses on Chytridiomycosis, Ecology, Amphibian, Biodiversity and Emerging infectious disease. His Chytridiomycosis research focuses on Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans in particular. Ecology is closely attributed to Biological dispersal in his research.

His work in Amphibian covers topics such as Pathogen which are related to areas like Major histocompatibility complex. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Environmental resource management and Extinction. His studies in Emerging infectious disease integrate themes in fields like Zoospore, Population model, Lineage and Fecundity.

His most cited work include:

  • Spread of Chytridiomycosis Has Caused the Rapid Global Decline and Extinction of Frogs (894 citations)
  • Pathogenesis of chytridiomycosis, a cause of catastrophic amphibian declines. (446 citations)
  • Effect of season and temperature on mortality in amphibians due to chytridiomycosis (333 citations)

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

Chytridiomycosis, Ecology, Amphibian, Zoology and Veterinary medicine are his primary areas of study. The various areas that Lee F. Skerratt examines in his Chytridiomycosis study include Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, Wildlife disease and Pseudophryne. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Emerging infectious disease.

His work in the fields of Amphibian, such as Litoria caerulea, Litoria and Leiopelma archeyi, intersects with other areas such as Litoria verreauxii. His research in Zoology intersects with topics in Range, Mange and Sarcoptes scabiei. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Infectious disease and Extinction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Chytridiomycosis (51.04%)
  • Ecology (43.15%)
  • Amphibian (28.63%)

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

  • Chytridiomycosis (51.04%)
  • Ecology (43.15%)
  • Amphibian (28.63%)

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

His primary areas of study are Chytridiomycosis, Ecology, Amphibian, Zoology and Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. His Chytridiomycosis study incorporates themes from Genetic diversity, Corroboree frog, Wildlife disease and Pseudophryne. His work deals with themes such as Disease and Population ecology, which intersect with Ecology.

His Amphibian research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Emerging infectious disease, Disease surveillance, Threatened species and Emerging pathogen. Lee F. Skerratt combines subjects such as Range, Endangered species, Habitat, Dendrolagus lumholtzi and Rainforest with his study of Zoology. His Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis research focuses on Viability assay and how it connects with Microbiology, Staining, Spore and Microbial Viability.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Amphibian fungal panzootic causes catastrophic and ongoing loss of biodiversity (288 citations)
  • Recent Asian origin of chytrid fungi causing global amphibian declines (187 citations)
  • After the epidemic: Ongoing declines, stabilizations and recoveries in amphibians afflicted by chytridiomycosis (55 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Virus
  • Habitat

His primary scientific interests are in Chytridiomycosis, Ecology, Immunology, Amphibian and Wildlife disease. His Chytridiomycosis research is included under the broader classification of Microbiology. In general Ecology, his work in Corroboree frog, Biodiversity and Pteropus alecto is often linked to Spillover effect linking many areas of study.

His Immunology research integrates issues from Caspase 3 and Pyroptosis. The concepts of his Amphibian study are interwoven with issues in Emerging infectious disease and Threatened species. His Wildlife disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Conservation status, Resistance, Extinction and Population ecology.
