2002 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Stephen D. Cairns mainly investigates Ecology, Scleractinia, Oceanography, Coral and Cnidaria. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Deep sea and Ecology. His work on Caryophylliidae, Tubastraea and Dendrophylliidae as part of general Scleractinia study is frequently linked to Monophyly, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
His study in Oceanography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Taxonomy and Fishery. His Coral research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Range, Coral reef, Species diversity and Habitat. Cnidaria is represented through his Stylasteridae and Octocorallia research.
Stephen D. Cairns mainly focuses on Ecology, Scleractinia, Oceanography, Cnidaria and Zoology. His works in Anthozoa, Coral, Genus, Coelenterata and Taxonomy are all subjects of inquiry into Ecology. The Coral study combines topics in areas such as Reef, Coral reef and Habitat.
His Scleractinia research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Range, Paleontology and Hermatypic coral. His work in the fields of Oceanography, such as Deep sea, overlaps with other areas such as Distribution. His Cnidaria study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Fauna.
His main research concerns Oceanography, Coral, Deep sea, Genus and Octocorallia. His studies deal with areas such as Fauna, Exclusive economic zone and Habitat as well as Oceanography. The concepts of his Coral study are interwoven with issues in Data descriptor and Trait.
He has included themes like Alcyonacea, Zoology and Anthozoa in his Octocorallia study. His Anthozoa study also includes fields such as
Stephen D. Cairns mainly investigates Oceanography, Primnoidae, Ecology, Octocorallia and Coral. His work investigates the relationship between Oceanography and topics such as Habitat that intersect with problems in Archipelago, Invertebrate, Benthic zone and Biome. His Scleractinia and Cnidaria investigations are all subjects of Ecology research.
His research in the fields of Tubastraea overlaps with other disciplines such as Vector. His Octocorallia study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Alcyonacea and Seamount. Stephen D. Cairns works mostly in the field of Coral, limiting it down to topics relating to Deep sea and, in certain cases, Taxon, State, Sponge and Ecosystem.
