Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Predation
  • Habitat

His main research concerns Ecology, Mercury, Seabird, Feather and Fishery. His research on Ecology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Zoology. Robert W. Furness has researched Mercury in several fields, including Environmental chemistry, Animal science, Cadmium and Food chain.

His work carried out in the field of Seabird brings together such families of science as Apex predator, Water pollution, Marine ecosystem, Ammodytes and Competition. The study incorporates disciplines such as Isotopes of nitrogen, Habitat, Isotope analysis, Moulting and Biomagnification in addition to Feather. As a part of the same scientific family, Robert W. Furness mostly works in the field of Fishery, focusing on Whiting and, on occasion, Haddock.

His most cited work include:

  • Birds as monitors of environmental change (602 citations)
  • Heavy metals in the marine environment. (595 citations)
  • Seabirds as monitors of the marine environment (528 citations)

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

Ecology, Seabird, Fishery, Zoology and Skua are his primary areas of study. His studies link Mercury with Ecology. His Seabird research includes themes of Abundance, Apex predator, Marine ecosystem and Oceanography, Pelagic zone.

His research in Fishery intersects with topics in Herring and North sea. His studies examine the connections between Zoology and genetics, as well as such issues in Hatching, with regards to Avian clutch size. His study on Great skua is often connected to Demography as part of broader study in Skua.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (61.24%)
  • Seabird (26.97%)
  • Fishery (24.16%)

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

  • Ecology (61.24%)
  • Seabird (26.97%)
  • Fishery (24.16%)

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

Robert W. Furness focuses on Ecology, Seabird, Fishery, Skua and Predation. Robert W. Furness works mostly in the field of Ecology, limiting it down to concerns involving Plasma concentration and, occasionally, Animal science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Offshore wind power, Habitat, Marine spatial planning, Marine conservation and Forage fish.

His study in Fishery is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Northern fulmar and Northern gannet. His work in the fields of Great skua overlaps with other areas such as Demography. His studies deal with areas such as Sea surface temperature, Climate change, Flocking, Potential mechanism and Trophic level as well as Predation.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Heavy metals in the marine environment. (595 citations)
  • Archiving primary data: Solutions for long-term studies (71 citations)
  • Plastic debris in great skua (Stercorarius skua) pellets corresponds to seabird prey species. (45 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Predation
  • Habitat

Robert W. Furness mainly focuses on Ecology, Seabird, Fishery, Skua and Great skua. His work on Trophic level, Habitat, Predation and Feather as part of his general Ecology study is frequently connected to Biological sciences, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. The concepts of his Seabird study are interwoven with issues in Marine conservation and Flight feather.

His study in the field of Fisheries management is also linked to topics like Central pair. In his research, Reproductive success, Bird egg, Hatching and Foraging is intimately related to Shetland, which falls under the overarching field of Skua. His Great skua study incorporates themes from Productivity, Larus fuscus and Zoology, Seasonal breeder.
