Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Biochemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Fatty acid, Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Biochemistry, Botany and Food science. His specific area of interest is Fatty acid, where Peter D. Nichols studies Docosahexaenoic acid. His Docosahexaenoic acid study incorporates themes from Trophic level and Food web.

His study of Eicosapentaenoic acid is a part of Polyunsaturated fatty acid. The study incorporates disciplines such as Food spoilage, Pathogenic bacteria, Bacteria and Methane in addition to Biochemistry. His Botany research incorporates themes from Gymnodinium, Wax and Microbiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Feeding aquaculture in an era of finite resources (925 citations)
  • Fatty acid and lipid composition of 10 species of microalgae used in mariculture (845 citations)
  • Phospholipid, ester-linked fatty acid profiles as reproducible assays for changes in prokaryotic community structure of estuarine sediments (590 citations)

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

Peter D. Nichols mainly investigates Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Fatty acid, Biochemistry, Ecology and Food science. His Polyunsaturated fatty acid research incorporates elements of Fish oil, Botany and Aquaculture. His Aquaculture study combines topics in areas such as Biotechnology and Salmo.

His research investigates the connection with Fatty acid and areas like Animal science which intersect with concerns in Canola. His study looks at the intersection of Biochemistry and topics like Bacteria with Microbiology. Peter D. Nichols interconnects Zoology and Fishery in the investigation of issues within Ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Polyunsaturated fatty acid (43.50%)
  • Fatty acid (43.50%)
  • Biochemistry (29.96%)

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

  • Polyunsaturated fatty acid (43.50%)
  • Fatty acid (43.50%)
  • Animal science (13.54%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Fatty acid, Animal science, Food science and Krill. His Polyunsaturated fatty acid study is associated with Biochemistry. His Fatty acid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Dry weight, Tuna, Albacore and Nutrient.

The concepts of his Animal science study are interwoven with issues in Canola and Bran. His research investigates the connection between Food science and topics such as Fish oil that intersect with issues in Fish meal and Dietary lipid. His Krill research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Trophic level and Whale.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Progress in Understanding Algal Bloom-Mediated Fish Kills: The Role of Superoxide Radicals, Phycotoxins and Fatty Acids (66 citations)
  • Taxonomy, ecology and biotechnological applications of thraustochytrids: A review (57 citations)
  • Direct determination of fatty acids in fish tissues: quantifying top predator trophic connections (37 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Biochemistry

Peter D. Nichols mainly focuses on Polyunsaturated fatty acid, Food science, Fatty acid, Ecology and Biochemistry. His Polyunsaturated fatty acid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Saturated fatty acid, Aquaculture, Fish oil, Fatty acid metabolism and Adipose tissue. His Food science research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Lipid metabolism and Nutrient.

He has included themes like Krill, Dry weight, Tuna, Albacore and Trophic level in his Fatty acid study. His studies deal with areas such as Fish gill, Cell culture and Microbiology as well as Ecology. His work in the fields of Biochemistry, such as Docosahexaenoic acid, Superoxide dismutase and Reactive oxygen species, intersects with other areas such as Biodiesel production.
