Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Bacteria

Tom Moens spends much of his time researching Ecology, Zoology, Species complex, Nematode and Intertidal zone. His research on Ecology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Environmental chemistry. Tom Moens focuses mostly in the field of Zoology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Internal transcribed spacer and, in certain cases, Local adaptation and Speciation.

The concepts of his Species complex study are interwoven with issues in Biodiversity, Population genetics, Sex ratio, Genetic structure and Biological dispersal. His Nematode study combines topics in areas such as Spartina, Detritus and Botany, Interspecific competition. In Intertidal zone, Tom Moens works on issues like Algae, which are connected to Anoxic waters, Heterotroph, Carbon cycle and Biogeochemical cycle.

His most cited work include:

  • The fate of intertidal microphytobenthos carbon: An in situ 13C-labeling study (545 citations)
  • Observations on the Feeding Ecology of Estuarine Nematodes (318 citations)
  • Dispersal and gene flow in free-living marine nematodes (252 citations)

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

Tom Moens mainly investigates Ecology, Nematode, Benthic zone, Oceanography and Species complex. His study in Ecology concentrates on Trophic level, Ecosystem, Meiobenthos, Intertidal zone and Biodiversity. His study explores the link between Intertidal zone and topics such as Estuary that cross with problems in Habitat.

While the research belongs to areas of Nematode, Tom Moens spends his time largely on the problem of Microcosm, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Diatom. Tom Moens has included themes like Seagrass, Zostera and Biomass in his Benthic zone study. His Species complex research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology, Sympatric speciation, Competition, Biological dispersal and Abiotic component.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (61.29%)
  • Nematode (22.94%)
  • Benthic zone (16.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Ecology (61.29%)
  • Nematode (22.94%)
  • Ecosystem (11.83%)

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

Tom Moens focuses on Ecology, Nematode, Ecosystem, Benthic zone and Estuary. His is doing research in Habitat, Interspecific competition, Trophic level, Effects of global warming on oceans and Herbivore, both of which are found in Ecology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Zoology and Predation.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Microbiome, Microcosm and Soil pH in addition to Nematode. His studies deal with areas such as Microplastics, Invertebrate and Bioturbation as well as Benthic zone. His Estuary research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Spatial ecology, Intertidal zone and Meiobenthos.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Do different habits affect microplastics contents in organisms? A trait-based analysis on salt marsh species. (14 citations)
  • Does microplastic ingestion by zooplankton affect predator-prey interactions? An experimental study on larviphagy (13 citations)
  • Environmental factors influence the detection probability in acoustic telemetry in a marine environment: results from a new setup (13 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Bacteria

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Food web, Trophic level and Estuary. His Ecology research focuses on Herbivore, Habitat, Detritivore, Marine ecosystem and Water quality. His work in Ecosystem addresses issues such as Intertidal zone, which are connected to fields such as Spatial ecology, Phytodetritus and Biodiversity.

His Trophic level study incorporates themes from Ecological niche, Competition and Predation. Tom Moens combines subjects such as Diversity index and Benthic zone, Meiobenthos with his study of Estuary. His Zoology research includes elements of Nematode and Microcosm.
