His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Biological dispersal, Biodiversity, Range and Biogeography. Alain Vanderpoorten has included themes like Monophyly and Vicariance in his Ecology study. His research integrates issues of Insular biogeography and Endemism in his study of Biological dispersal.
The Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Archipelago, Last Glacial Maximum, Habitat and Plant evolution. His study looks at the intersection of Range and topics like Leptoscyphus with Disjunct, Divergence and Continental drift. His work carried out in the field of Biogeography brings together such families of science as Phylogeography, Apodemus and Allopatric speciation.
His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Biological dispersal, Bryophyte, Botany and Range. In most of his Ecology studies, his work intersects topics such as Genetic structure. His studies deal with areas such as Genetic diversity, Insular biogeography, Biogeography, Isolation by distance and Species distribution as well as Biological dispersal.
He studied Bryophyte and Flora that intersect with Floristics. His Botany research incorporates elements of Clade and Ribosomal DNA. His Range research includes elements of Continental drift, Niche and Phylogeography, Vicariance.
Alain Vanderpoorten mainly investigates Ecology, Bryophyte, Biodiversity, Biological dispersal and Habitat. His Niche and Speciation study in the realm of Ecology interacts with subjects such as Diversification and Cape verde. His Bryophyte research incorporates themes from Schistidium flaccidum, Distichium capillaceum and Climate change.
His study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Flora, Amazon rainforest, Species richness, Floristics and Ptychomitrium. His Biological dispersal research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bryopsida, Range and Isolation by distance, Genetic structure. The various areas that he examines in his Range study include Orthotrichaceae, Moss and Old World.
His main research concerns Moss, Zoology, Biological dispersal, Bryophyte and Evolutionary biology. He combines subjects such as Range, Old World and Endemism with his study of Moss. His research in the fields of Intraspecific competition overlaps with other disciplines such as Symbiosis.
His Biological dispersal research integrates issues from Ecology, Epiphyte, Habitat, Laurel forest and Alpha diversity. Alain Vanderpoorten has researched Bryophyte in several fields, including Nestedness and Beta diversity. The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Taxon, Lineage and Nuclear gene.
