Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

Valerie J. Harwood mainly investigates Fecal coliform, Indicator bacteria, Sewage, Ecology and Feces. Her research in Fecal coliform intersects with topics in Coliform bacteria, Pollution and Cryptosporidium. The Sewage study combines topics in areas such as Wastewater and Enterococcus.

The various areas that Valerie J. Harwood examines in her Ecology study include Microbial ecology and Indicator organism. Her Feces study is concerned with the field of Microbiology as a whole. Her Water quality research includes elements of Human pathogen and Water pollution.

Her most cited work include:

  • Persistence and Differential Survival of Fecal Indicator Bacteria in Subtropical Waters and Sediments (459 citations)
  • Validity of the Indicator Organism Paradigm for Pathogen Reduction in Reclaimed Water and Public Health Protection (448 citations)
  • Microbial source tracking markers for detection of fecal contamination in environmental waters: relationships between pathogens and human health outcomes (359 citations)

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

Valerie J. Harwood spends much of her time researching Indicator bacteria, Ecology, Microbiology, Water quality and Fecal coliform. Her studies deal with areas such as Mesocosm, Feces, Sewage, Pollution and Environmental chemistry as well as Indicator bacteria. Her study explores the link between Ecology and topics such as Indicator organism that cross with problems in Reclaimed water and Seawater.

Her Microbiology study incorporates themes from Vibrio vulnificus, 16S ribosomal RNA, Bacteria, Polymerase chain reaction and Virulence. As part of the same scientific family, she usually focuses on Water quality, concentrating on Microorganism and intersecting with Predation. Her Fecal coliform research incorporates themes from Total maximum daily load, Indicator species, Coliform bacteria and Cryptosporidium.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Indicator bacteria (40.80%)
  • Ecology (33.60%)
  • Microbiology (33.60%)

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

  • Indicator bacteria (40.80%)
  • Sewage (28.80%)
  • Feces (26.40%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Indicator bacteria, Sewage, Feces, Water quality and Ecology. Her Indicator bacteria study improves the overall literature in Fecal coliform. Valerie J. Harwood has included themes like Bacteroides, Bacteria, Contamination, Water pollution and Microbiology in her Sewage study.

In her research, Bacteroidales, Surface water and Recreation is intimately related to Pollution, which falls under the overarching field of Feces. Her research integrates issues of Coliphage and Sewage treatment in her study of Water quality. Her studies deal with areas such as Microorganism and Microbial ecology as well as Ecology.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Beach sand and the potential for infectious disease transmission: observations and recommendations (52 citations)
  • Evaluation of the novel crAssphage marker for sewage pollution tracking in storm drain outfalls in Tampa, Florida (45 citations)
  • Precipitation influences pathogenic bacteria and antibiotic resistance gene abundance in storm drain outfalls in coastal sub-tropical waters. (43 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

Valerie J. Harwood focuses on Feces, Sewage, Indicator bacteria, Pollution and Water quality. Her Sewage study combines topics in areas such as Contamination and Bacteroides. Her Pollution research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Wastewater, Fecal coliform and Surface water.

Her Wastewater research incorporates elements of Natural water, Microbiology and Microbial source tracking. The various areas that Valerie J. Harwood examines in her Fecal coliform study include Range and Total maximum daily load. Her Water quality study is concerned with Ecology in general.
