His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Benthos, Oceanography, Species diversity and Global biodiversity. His studies in Biodiversity and Ecosystem are all subfields of Ecology research. The study incorporates disciplines such as Bathyal zone and Community structure in addition to Benthos.
His work carried out in the field of Bathyal zone brings together such families of science as Range, Biological dispersal, Abyssal zone and Extinction. His study involves Deep sea, Meiobenthos, Benthic zone and Seafloor spreading, a branch of Oceanography. Michael A. Rex interconnects Climate change, Marine ecosystem, Marine habitats and Greenhouse gas in the investigation of issues within Global biodiversity.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Deep sea, Oceanography, Bathyal zone and Abyssal zone. His study in Ecology focuses on Biodiversity, Species diversity, Benthos, Fauna and Global biodiversity. His Deep sea research incorporates themes from Trophic level, Continental shelf, Gastropoda, Benthic zone and Genetic variation.
His Seabed, Seafloor spreading and Sea surface temperature study in the realm of Oceanography interacts with subjects such as Geography and Diversity. His research integrates issues of Range, Invertebrate, Genetic structure and Marine invertebrates in his study of Bathyal zone. His Abyssal zone study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Coral reef, Paleontology, Abyssal plain, Reef and Nestedness.
Ecology, Deep sea, Oceanography, Abyssal zone and Bathyal zone are his primary areas of study. His work on Ecology deals in particular with Nestedness, Biodiversity and Species diversity. His Deep sea study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Benthic zone.
In general Oceanography study, his work on Seabed, Sea surface temperature and Climate change often relates to the realm of Geography and Energy, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His study brings together the fields of Benthos and Bathyal zone. The concepts of his Benthos study are interwoven with issues in Biological dispersal and Water column.
