Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Habitat

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Environmental niche modelling, Ecological niche, Biodiversity and Niche. His Ecology study focuses mostly on Ecology, Range, Biogeography, Climate change and Geographic distribution. His Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biological dispersal and Extinction.

His Environmental niche modelling research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Vector, Statistics, Species distribution, Artificial intelligence and Machine learning. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Ecological niche, Introduced species is strongly linked to Invasive species. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of The Internet, Pleistocene and Species diversity.

His most cited work include:

  • Novel methods improve prediction of species' distributions from occurrence data (5714 citations)
  • Extinction risk from climate change (5460 citations)
  • Predicting species distributions from small numbers of occurrence records: A test case using cryptic geckos in Madagascar (1879 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ecological niche, Environmental niche modelling, Biodiversity and Range. His study in Niche, Climate change, Ecology, Biogeography and Habitat is done as part of Ecology. A. Townsend Peterson works in the field of Climate change, namely Global warming.

The various areas that A. Townsend Peterson examines in his Ecological niche study include Last Glacial Maximum, Biological dispersal, Geographic distribution and Invasive species. His work deals with themes such as Vector and Vegetation, which intersect with Environmental niche modelling. His work carried out in the field of Biodiversity brings together such families of science as Endemism and Environmental resource management.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (57.69%)
  • Ecological niche (30.56%)
  • Environmental niche modelling (26.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecology (57.69%)
  • Ecological niche (30.56%)
  • Environmental niche modelling (26.04%)

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

A. Townsend Peterson focuses on Ecology, Ecological niche, Environmental niche modelling, Niche and Biodiversity. His Ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Phylogeography and Biological dispersal. His Ecological niche research includes elements of Evolutionary biology, Range, Tick, Climate change and Environmental resource management.

In his research on the topic of Environmental niche modelling, Predictive power is strongly related with Machine learning. A. Townsend Peterson interconnects Population density, Phylogenetic niche conservatism, Extinction and Ensemble forecasting in the investigation of issues within Niche. The various areas that A. Townsend Peterson examines in his Biodiversity study include Training and Environmental planning.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Outstanding Challenges in the Transferability of Ecological Models. (136 citations)
  • kuenm: an R package for detailed development of ecological niche models using Maxent. (106 citations)
  • Earth history and the passerine superradiation (77 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • IUCN Red List

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Ecological niche, Environmental niche modelling, Niche and Climate change. His Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Phylogeography and Biological dispersal. His studies deal with areas such as Range, Sympatry, Geographic distribution and Riparian zone as well as Ecological niche.

His Environmental niche modelling research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome and Machine learning, Model selection, Artificial intelligence. His research in Niche intersects with topics in Population density, Abundance, Breeding bird survey, Centroid and Invasive species. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mainland China, Biodiversity and Amblyomma americanum.
