Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Sponge, Proteobacteria, Coral reef and Microbial population biology. Her Ecology research integrates issues from Evolutionary biology, Phylum and Phylogenetics. Her Sponge research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Symbiosis, 16S ribosomal RNA, Bacteria and Microbiology.

Her research in Proteobacteria intersects with topics in Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis and Bacteroidetes. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Reef and Gammaproteobacteria. Her Microbial population biology research focuses on Ocean acidification and how it connects with Porites cylindrica, Relative species abundance and Algae.

Her most cited work include:

  • Marine sponges and their microbial symbionts: love and other relationships. (369 citations)
  • Assessing the complex sponge microbiota: core, variable and species-specific bacterial communities in marine sponges. (355 citations)
  • Deep sequencing reveals exceptional diversity and modes of transmission for bacterial sponge symbionts. (326 citations)

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

Nicole S. Webster focuses on Ecology, Sponge, Coral reef, Microbiome and Reef. Nicole S. Webster regularly ties together related areas like Holobiont in her Ecology studies. Her Holobiont study combines topics in areas such as Symbiodinium and Metagenomics.

Nicole S. Webster has researched Sponge in several fields, including Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Host and Microbiology. While the research belongs to areas of Coral reef, she spends her time largely on the problem of Marine invertebrates, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Invertebrate. Her study in Microbiome is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Firmicutes, Microbial population biology, Proteobacteria, Phylum and Microbial ecology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (91.80%)
  • Sponge (61.07%)
  • Coral reef (59.84%)

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

  • Microbiome (57.79%)
  • Ecology (91.80%)
  • Coral reef (59.84%)

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

Nicole S. Webster mainly focuses on Microbiome, Ecology, Coral reef, Sponge and Reef. Nicole S. Webster interconnects Microbial ecology, Holobiont, Coral and Microbial population biology in the investigation of issues within Microbiome. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Coral reef, Asexual reproduction, Fauna and Carteriospongia foliascens is strongly linked to Benthic zone.

Her Sponge research includes themes of Evolutionary biology, Candidatus, Gene, Metagenomics and Thaumarchaeota. Her research integrates issues of Nutrient and Biogeochemical cycle in her study of Reef. Nicole S. Webster combines subjects such as Global warming and Climate change with her study of Ecosystem.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Scientists' Warning to Humanity: Microorganisms and Climate Change (263 citations)
  • Scientists' Warning to Humanity: Microorganisms and Climate Change (263 citations)
  • Minimum information about an uncultivated virus genome (MIUVIG) (123 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

Nicole S. Webster mostly deals with Microbiome, Ecology, Ecosystem, Genome and Metagenomics. Her work deals with themes such as Evolutionary biology, Zoology, Coral reef, Microbial population biology and Host, which intersect with Microbiome. Her Coral reef research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Indicator value and Eutrophication.

Her work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Microorganism and Biofilm. Nicole S. Webster has included themes like Reef, Global warming, Climate change and Microbial ecology in her Ecosystem study. Her work focuses on many connections between Phylogenetic diversity and other disciplines, such as Archaea, that overlap with her field of interest in Sponge.
