Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Endocrinology
  • Behavioral endocrinology

His main research concerns Ecology, Foraging, Zoology, Descent and Predation. As part of his studies on Ecology, Yutaka Watanuki often connects relevant subjects like Animal science. His Foraging study incorporates themes from European shag and Oceanography.

His studies deal with areas such as Body weight, Puffinus and Biomechanics as well as Zoology. In his research on the topic of Descent, Surge, Drag, Geodesy, Meteorology and Uria lomvia is strongly related with Buoyancy. His work in Predation tackles topics such as Fishery which are related to areas like Sand lance and Piscivore.

His most cited work include:

  • Transport and release of chemicals from plastics to the environment and to wildlife (1269 citations)
  • Accumulation of plastic-derived chemicals in tissues of seabirds ingesting marine plastics. (335 citations)
  • Can Ethograms Be Automatically Generated Using Body Acceleration Data from Free-Ranging Birds? (275 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Foraging, Fishery, Predation and Zoology. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Animal science. His Foraging research focuses on subjects like Oceanography, which are linked to Uria lomvia.

When carried out as part of a general Fishery research project, his work on Pelagic zone and Krill is frequently linked to work in Japanese anchovy and Engraulis, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The Predation study combines topics in areas such as Trophic level and Marine ecosystem. His study looks at the relationship between Cerorhinca monocerata and fields such as Larus schistisagus, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (50.72%)
  • Foraging (33.49%)
  • Fishery (27.27%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Ecology (50.72%)
  • Seabird (22.97%)
  • Foraging (33.49%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Seabird, Foraging, Predation and Fishery. His work on Cerorhinca monocerata, Rhinoceros, Climate change and Body condition as part of general Ecology research is often related to Vegetation, thus linking different fields of science. His work focuses on many connections between Seabird and other disciplines, such as Oceanography, that overlap with his field of interest in Marine ecosystem.

His Foraging study combines topics in areas such as Range, Habitat, Procellariiformes, Marine conservation and Fishing. His research integrates issues of Puffinus and Shearwater in his study of Fishery. His Pollutant research includes themes of Ingestion, Environmental chemistry and Plastic pollution, Pollution.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Accumulation of plastic-derived chemicals in tissues of seabirds ingesting marine plastics. (335 citations)
  • Facilitated Leaching of Additive-Derived PBDEs from Plastic by Seabirds’ Stomach Oil and Accumulation in Tissues (113 citations)
  • Scales and mechanisms of marine hotspot formation (48 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Endocrinology
  • Behavioral endocrinology

Yutaka Watanuki mostly deals with Ecology, Foraging, Predation, Seabird and Fishery. In Ecology, Yutaka Watanuki works on issues like Zoology, which are connected to Restricted diet. His Foraging research incorporates elements of Range, Bird flight, Habitat, Marine conservation and Ammodytes.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Trophic level, Charadriiformes and Sympatry. His Seabird study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Marine debris and Plastic pollution. He has researched Fishery in several fields, including Puffinus, Marine ecosystem and Behavioral plasticity.
