Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Ecology, Biodiversity, Phylogenetics, Extinction and Phylogenetic tree are his primary areas of study. In his study, Mammal is strongly linked to Population density, which falls under the umbrella field of Ecology. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Land use, Climate change, Natural resource economics, Species richness and Biogeography.

His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Evolutionary biology and Biological evolution. His Extinction study combines topics in areas such as Adaptation and Tropics. He interconnects Taxon, Paleontology and Fossil Record in the investigation of issues within Phylogenetic tree.

His most cited work include:

  • The delayed rise of present-day mammals (1737 citations)
  • Global effects of land use on local terrestrial biodiversity (1401 citations)
  • Predicting extinction risk in declining species (1120 citations)

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

Andy Purvis mainly investigates Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Phylogenetics and Extinction. Habitat, Species diversity, Range, Taxon and Abundance are the core of his Ecology study. His work carried out in the field of Biodiversity brings together such families of science as Climate change, Environmental resource management, Land use and Ecosystem services.

Paleontology and Plankton is closely connected to Foraminifera in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Species richness. His Phylogenetics study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Zoology and Phylogenetic tree. His Extinction research includes themes of IUCN Red List, Biological dispersal and Threatened species.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (63.96%)
  • Biodiversity (61.48%)
  • Species richness (28.27%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Biodiversity (61.48%)
  • Ecology (63.96%)
  • Species richness (28.27%)

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

Andy Purvis spends much of his time researching Biodiversity, Ecology, Species richness, Ecosystem services and Natural resource economics. His Biodiversity study incorporates themes from Habitat, Sustainability, Environmental resource management and Environmental planning. Many of his studies on Ecology apply to Scalability as well.

His study on Species richness also encompasses disciplines like

  • Abundance together with Phylogenetic tree, Resistance and Agricultural land,
  • Species diversity and related Spatial heterogeneity, Spatial ecology, Biome and Biodiversity hotspot. His research in the fields of Millennium Ecosystem Assessment overlaps with other disciplines such as Government. His research in Natural resource economics intersects with topics in Extinction, Agriculture, Climate change, Apex and Biodiversity and food.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pervasive human-driven decline of life on Earth points to the need for transformative change. (260 citations)
  • Pervasive human-driven decline of life on Earth points to the need for transformative change. (260 citations)
  • Summary for policymakers of the global assessment report on biodiversity and ecosystem services of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (169 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Andy Purvis mostly deals with Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, Sustainability, Ecology and Development economics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Abundance, Herbivore, Land use and Environmental planning. The concepts of his Sustainability study are interwoven with issues in Habitat, Food systems, Agriculture, Food prices and Natural resource economics.

Andy Purvis frequently studies issues relating to Extinction and Ecology. His research integrates issues of Per capita income and Wild species in his study of Development economics. His study in Global biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Environmental resource management and Sustainable development.
