2009 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
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.
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.
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.
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.
