Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

His primary areas of study are Zoology, Ecology, Isopoda, Gnathia and Gnathiidae. His Haemogregarina bigemina study, which is part of a larger body of work in Zoology, is frequently linked to Biological sciences, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Ecology research includes elements of Parasitic disease and Disease.

His Isopoda study deals with the bigger picture of Crustacean. Nico J. Smit combines subjects such as Elasmobranchii and Anatomy with his study of Crustacean. His Gnathia research integrates issues from Coral reef, Haemogregarina and Larva.

His most cited work include:

  • The curious life-style of the parasitic stages of Gnathiid isopods. (112 citations)
  • Global diversity of fish parasitic isopod crustaceans of the family Cymothoidae (76 citations)
  • The life cycle of haemogregarina bigemina (Adeleina: Haemogregarinidae) in South African hosts. (69 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Zoology, Ecology, Isopoda, Crustacean and Gnathia. His studies in Zoology integrate themes in fields like Hepatozoon, Haemogregarina and Adeleorina. Nico J. Smit works mostly in the field of Ecology, limiting it down to concerns involving Hydrocynus vittatus and, occasionally, Apex predator.

His Isopoda and Gnathiidae and Cymothoidae investigations all form part of his Isopoda research activities. As a part of the same scientific family, Nico J. Smit mostly works in the field of Gnathiidae, focusing on Lizard and, on occasion, Great barrier reef and Juvenile. His Gnathia study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Larva and Anatomy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Zoology (47.94%)
  • Ecology (43.81%)
  • Isopoda (21.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Zoology (47.94%)
  • Genus (13.40%)
  • Ecology (43.81%)

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

Nico J. Smit mainly focuses on Zoology, Genus, Ecology, Isopoda and Host. The Zoology study combines topics in areas such as Pseudoficalbia, Adeleorina and Synodontis zambezensis. Nico J. Smit interconnects Receptacle and Palaeacanthocephala in the investigation of issues within Genus.

He connects Ecology with Biodilution in his research. His Isopoda research is classified as research in Crustacean. His Host research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cymothoa, Ontogeny, Juvenile and Abundance.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Alien freshwater fauna in South Africa (16 citations)
  • Three new species of acanthocephalans (Palaeacanthocephala) from marine fishes collected off the East Coast of South Africa. (10 citations)
  • Understanding growth relationships of African cymothoid fish parasitic isopods using specimens from museum and field collections. (9 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

Nico J. Smit spends much of his time researching Zoology, Genus, Crustacean, Host and Pseudoficalbia. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phylogenetics, Parasite diversity, Phylogenetic tree and Adeleorina. Crustacean is a primary field of his research addressed under Ecology.

Nico J. Smit applies his multidisciplinary studies on Ecology and Alien in his research. The concepts of his Host study are interwoven with issues in Juvenile, Ontogeny, Cymothoa and Ceratothoa. His research in Isopoda intersects with topics in Great barrier reef and Lizard.
