Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Oceanography

His main research concerns Ecology, Benthic zone, Oceanography, Sediment and Organic matter. His work on Ecology deals in particular with Ecosystem, Estuary, Spartina anglica, Ecosystem engineer and Trophic level. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Salinity, Intertidal zone and Marsh.

His Benthic zone research includes elements of Biomass, Pelagic zone, Carbon cycle and Biogeochemical cycle. His Sediment study combines topics in areas such as Soil science, Benthos, Erosion and Water column. Peter M. J. Herman combines subjects such as Environmental chemistry and Total organic carbon with his study of Organic matter.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecosystem-based coastal defence in the face of global change (655 citations)
  • The fate of intertidal microphytobenthos carbon: An in situ 13C-labeling study (545 citations)
  • Production and consumption of biological particles in temperate tidal estuaries (491 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Oceanography, Ecosystem, Sediment and Benthic zone. Estuary, Biomass, Salt marsh, Intertidal zone and Habitat are among the areas of Ecology where he concentrates his study. His Oceanography study which covers Organic matter that intersects with Environmental chemistry.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Spatial ecology, Abiotic component and Environmental resource management in addition to Ecosystem. His Sediment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil science, Erosion and Flume. His research on Benthic zone frequently links to adjacent areas such as Biogeochemical cycle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (43.55%)
  • Oceanography (28.49%)
  • Ecosystem (22.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Ecology (43.55%)
  • Ecosystem (22.04%)
  • Oceanography (28.49%)

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

Ecology, Ecosystem, Oceanography, Sediment and Seagrass are his primary areas of study. His study on Ecology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Fishery. His work deals with themes such as Environmental resource management, Vegetation, Spatial ecology, Abiotic component and Mangrove, which intersect with Ecosystem.

His research on Oceanography often connects related topics like Algae. His Sediment research incorporates themes from Erosion and Salt marsh. His research in Intertidal zone intersects with topics in Satellite imagery, Estuary, Beach morphodynamics, Species richness and Benthic zone.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Identifying knowledge gaps hampering application of intertidal habitats in coastal protection: Opportunities & steps to take (148 citations)
  • Critical transitions in disturbance‐driven ecosystems: identifying Windows of Opportunity for recovery (130 citations)
  • Habitat collapse due to overgrazing threatens turtle conservation in marine protected areas (88 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Habitat

Peter M. J. Herman mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Salt marsh, Intertidal zone and Habitat. His study in Ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Spatial ecology, Oceanography, Environmental resource management and Mangrove. His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Bioturbation and Posidonia australis.

His Salt marsh study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sediment, Biogeomorphology, Water level and Marsh, Wetland. Peter M. J. Herman has included themes like Hydrology, Erosion and Silt in his Sediment study. The concepts of his Intertidal zone study are interwoven with issues in Photosynthetic capacity, Atmospheric sciences and Satellite imagery.
