Three Most Impactful Ecological Researchers Of 2018-2019

Last Updated on

The years 2018-2019 has been one of the most enlightening for the ecological sector. There have been outstanding ecological researches that have changed the shape of the world. Research in the ecological field is important since climate change is real like other aspects such as air and water pollution. Research writers compiled a list of the top three ecological researchers.

For us to survive the effects of climate change, weneed to understand its aspects and the best ways of counteracting them. The top ecological researchers for the years 2018-2019 have come up with the best articles that broaden our knowledge of climate.

Amanda L. Dawson

Amanda L. Dawson is the top ecological researcher for our 2018-2019 review. The scientist together with other authors wrote the piece “turning microplastics into Nano plastics through digestive fragmentation by Antarctic krill”. The piece is highly informative and is widely considered as an eye-opener in the field.  Amanda has also been involved in other projects such as articles on humpback whales and Domoic acid poisoning in Australia.

Dawson is an Australian Ph.D. graduate with a specialization in the environment, environmental pollution, marine ecology, marine biology, biomarkers, environmental toxicology, ecotoxicology, Bioaccumulation, Aquatic Ecotoxicology, marine pollution, Cetaceans, and Marine Ecotoxicology.  Dawson is an environmental science graduate of Griffith University. She has also worked at the university as a research assistant and in the department of agriculture, fisheries and forestry (DAFF) in Australia as a Fisheries Resource Officer.  Most of the Dawson works are co-authored by top ecologists like Brian Fry, Anders Bignert, Roger Cropp and Courtney Alice Waugh. In total Amanda Dawson has produced 18 research items, 2904 read items and 52 citations.

Xu Yue

Xu Yue’s popularity in last year is due to the article he co-authored with Nadine Unger on how “fire air pollution reduces global terrestrial activity”. Xu Yue is a graduate with specializations in biogeochemistry, meteorology, atmospheric physics, precipitation, atmospheric pollution, climate modeling, ecosystems, climatology, carbon dioxide, climate dynamics, carbon cycle, numerical weather prediction, ecosystem modeling, atmospheric science, ozone, atmospheric modeling, and radiative forcing. According to Science daily, all these areas are part of the wider ecology.

Xu Yue has also served in the school of engineering and applied sciences at Harvard University as a postdoc. During this time, he worked for the “wildlife projection under the working climate” project.  Xu Yue has also worked with other top authors like Kandice Harper and Tao Li on aerosol pollutants’ effect on the climate. His other top co-authors include Melissa Sulprizio, Ander Wilson, Trevor F. Keenan, Mitchell J. Power, and J. William Munger. In total, Xu Yue has produced 40 research items, 30 and 40 644 citations.

James P.W. Robinson

James P.W. Robinson popular article is on “Macroecology and tropical fisheries”. Robinson authored the article together with many co-authors and they seek to understand how anthropogenic pressures on the coral reefs affect the people and ecosystem functioning. Robinson is currently serving as the senior research associate in the Lancaster Environment center of Lancaster University.

Robinson specializes in biodiversity, marine ecology, Git, marine environment, marine biodiversity, R Programming, conservation biology, aquatic ecology, fish ecology, fisheries, fisheries science, fisheries ecology, and coral reef ecology.   He has also won the LeverhulmeTrust Study Abroad Scholarship in 2012.

His top co-authors include Jana McPherson, Laurent Vigliola, David Stormer, Shaun K Wilson, and Maria Dornelas.  He was also involved in the project “manipulating feedbacks to stimulate regeneration of degraded coral reefs”.  He has also done 23 research items together with other authors. Robinson has 1958 reads and 59 citations.

The last year has witnessed numerous developments and researches in the ecological sector. Ecological researchers have been putting up their efforts in coming up with new solutions to challenges to the world’s ecology. The notable researchers are those who came up with useful and insightful solutions to common challenges in our environment.
