Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Genus

His main research concerns Ecology, Abundance, Benthic zone, Meiobenthos and Nematode. His Ecology study typically links adjacent topics like Zoology. His Abundance study incorporates themes from Biomass, Profundal zone and Community structure.

His Benthic zone study combines topics in areas such as Aquatic ecosystem and Freshwater ecosystem. His work carried out in the field of Meiobenthos brings together such families of science as Mesocosm, Macrobenthos and Species diversity. His work deals with themes such as Biomonitoring and Botany, which intersect with Nematode.

His most cited work include:

  • Effects of dissolved organic matter (DOM) on the bioconcentration of organic chemicals in aquatic organisms--a review. (223 citations)
  • The role of micro‐organisms in the ecological connectivity of running waters (210 citations)
  • Soil nematode abundance and functional group composition at a global scale (160 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Nematode, Meiobenthos, Biomass and Benthic zone. His Ecology study is mostly concerned with Abundance, Trophic level, Ecosystem, Littoral zone and Microcosm. His Nematode research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Zoology, Animal science, Caenorhabditis elegans and Botany.

Walter Traunspurger has included themes like Periphyton and Habitat in his Meiobenthos study. His Biomass research includes elements of Population density and Predation. His research integrates issues of Aquatic ecosystem, Fauna, Freshwater ecosystem and STREAMS in his study of Benthic zone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (64.17%)
  • Nematode (26.38%)
  • Meiobenthos (23.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (64.17%)
  • Nematode (26.38%)
  • Meiobenthos (23.23%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Nematode, Meiobenthos, Benthic zone and Zoology. His study in Biomass, Ecosystem, Trophic level, Abundance and Habitat are all subfields of Ecology. Walter Traunspurger has included themes like Microcosm, Food science, Caenorhabditis elegans, Interspecific competition and Food web in his Nematode study.

His work deals with themes such as Community structure and Life stage, which intersect with Meiobenthos. The study incorporates disciplines such as Species distribution, Periphyton, Freshwater ecosystem and STREAMS in addition to Benthic zone. Walter Traunspurger has researched Zoology in several fields, including Ingestion, Microplastics, Plectus acuminatus and Predation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Soil nematode abundance and functional group composition at a global scale (160 citations)
  • Impacts of Micro- and Nano-Sized Plastic Particles on Benthic Invertebrates: A Literature Review and Gap Analysis (52 citations)
  • Surface-Related Toxicity of Polystyrene Beads to Nematodes and the Role of Food Availability (28 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Genus

His scientific interests lie mostly in Nematode, Ecology, Zoology, Biomass and Trophic level. His Nematode research incorporates themes from Ecotoxicology, Food science, Caenorhabditis elegans and Acute toxicity. His study in Abundance, Ecosystem, Quercus robur, Bark and Moss falls under the purview of Ecology.

His study in Zoology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Range and Predator, Predation, Functional response. The Biomass study combines topics in areas such as Biosphere, Soil water, Soil fertility, Soil food web and Taxonomic resolution. His study looks at the relationship between Trophic level and fields such as Meiobenthos, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
