Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • IUCN Red List

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biodiversity, Ecology, Global biodiversity, Threatened species and Endangered species. His research integrates issues of Environmental resource management and Ecosystem services in his study of Biodiversity. His Ecology research focuses on IUCN Red List, Species richness, Species diversity and Abundance.

His work carried out in the field of IUCN Red List brings together such families of science as Conservation status and Red List Index. The Data deficient research Ben Collen does as part of his general Threatened species study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Project team, Hierarchy, Lexicon and Work, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His work focuses on many connections between Endangered species and other disciplines, such as Extinction, that overlap with his field of interest in Statistics and Conservation science.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Biodiversity: Indicators of Recent Declines (2945 citations)
  • Defaunation in the Anthropocene (1625 citations)
  • Global effects of land use on local terrestrial biodiversity (1401 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Biodiversity, Extinction, Environmental resource management and IUCN Red List. His Threatened species, Endangered species, Abundance, Habitat and Habitat destruction study are his primary interests in Ecology. His Biodiversity course of study focuses on Species richness and Conservation biology.

His Extinction research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Range, Environmental change, Relative species abundance and Statistics. His Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Ecology, Measurement of biodiversity and Environmental protection. Ben Collen has researched IUCN Red List in several fields, including Conservation status, Data deficient and Red List Index.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (53.80%)
  • Biodiversity (51.90%)
  • Extinction (22.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (53.80%)
  • Biodiversity (51.90%)
  • IUCN Red List (20.25%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Biodiversity, IUCN Red List, Environmental resource management and Extinction. His studies examine the connections between Ecology and genetics, as well as such issues in Alien, with regards to Alien species and Invasive species. His research in Biodiversity is mostly focused on Global biodiversity.

As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Global biodiversity, narrowing it down to issues related to the Convention on Biological Diversity, and often Sustainability and Decision theory. The concepts of his IUCN Red List study are interwoven with issues in Conservation status, Data deficient and Environmental planning. Ben Collen has researched Extinction in several fields, including Red List Index and Holocene.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The global distribution of tetrapods reveals a need for targeted reptile conservation (149 citations)
  • The database of the PREDICTS (Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems) project (84 citations)
  • Correlates of extinction risk in squamate reptiles: the relative importance of biology, geography, threat and range size (74 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

Ben Collen mainly investigates Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, IUCN Red List and Environmental planning. Ben Collen incorporates Ecology and Vertebrate in his studies. His research in Biodiversity intersects with topics in Land use, Taxon, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem and Conservation biology.

His Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Convention on Biological Diversity and Abundance. His Global biodiversity research extends to Species richness, which is thematically connected. In his study, Data deficient is inextricably linked to Extinction, which falls within the broad field of IUCN Red List.
