Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Coral reef

His main research concerns Coral reef, Ecology, Fishery, Reef and Fishing. His study brings together the fields of Climate change and Coral reef. His work in Environmental issues with coral reefs, Aquaculture of coral, Coral, Acropora and Montipora are all subfields of Ecology research.

In the subject of general Coral, his work in Cnidaria is often linked to El Niño, thereby combining diverse domains of study. The various areas that he examines in his Fishery study include Marine protected area and Resource. Tim R. McClanahan interconnects Biodiversity, Extinction, Taxon, Life history theory and Community in the investigation of issues within Reef.

His most cited work include:

  • Rebuilding Global Fisheries (1581 citations)
  • Coral reefs: corals' adaptive response to climate change (629 citations)
  • Effects of climate -induced coral bleaching on coral -reef fishes — ecological and economic consequences (411 citations)

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

Tim R. McClanahan mainly focuses on Coral reef, Ecology, Fishery, Reef and Coral. Coral reef is closely attributed to Biomass in his work. As part of the same scientific family, Tim R. McClanahan usually focuses on Fishery, concentrating on Marine protected area and intersecting with Protected area.

The concepts of his Reef study are interwoven with issues in Climate change and Benthic zone. His work focuses on many connections between Fishing and other disciplines, such as Resource, that overlap with his field of interest in Natural resource. The Fisheries management study combines topics in areas such as Fish stock and Environmental resource management.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Coral reef (55.84%)
  • Ecology (54.70%)
  • Fishery (45.01%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Coral reef (55.84%)
  • Fishery (45.01%)
  • Reef (40.46%)

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

Tim R. McClanahan mostly deals with Coral reef, Fishery, Reef, Ecology and Fishing. His Coral reef research integrates issues from Marine protected area, Habitat and Fisheries management. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biomass, Ecosystem-based management and Sustainability.

His Reef research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Climate change, Ecosystem, Coral, Dominance and Benthic zone. Biodiversity, Resilience of coral reefs, Species richness, Taxon and Environmental issues with coral reefs are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His Fishing research focuses on subjects like Resource, which are linked to Common-pool resource.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bright spots among the world’s coral reefs (228 citations)
  • High frequency temperature variability reduces the risk of coral bleaching. (95 citations)
  • Effective fisheries management instrumental in improving fish stock status. (86 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Tim R. McClanahan mainly investigates Coral reef, Reef, Fishery, Environmental resource management and Coral reef fish. His study on Coral reef is covered under Ecology. His research integrates issues of Ecosystem and Coral in his study of Reef.

His work in Fishery addresses issues such as Biodiversity, which are connected to fields such as Ecosystem management and Conservation biology. His research in Environmental resource management intersects with topics in Sustainability and Ecosystem services. He has researched Coral reef fish in several fields, including Biomass and Fishing.
