Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Biodiversity, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Climate change and Ecosystem. He combines subjects such as Forest management, Agroforestry, Wildlife, Disturbance and Natural resource economics with his study of Biodiversity. His study in the fields of Habitat, Northern australia and Ecology under the domain of Ecology overlaps with other disciplines such as Foundation.

His study focuses on the intersection of Environmental resource management and fields such as Intact forest landscape with connections in the field of Forest restoration. The various areas that Brendan Mackey examines in his Climate change study include Endangered species, Species distribution and Environmental protection. His work on Carbon cycle as part of general Ecosystem study is frequently linked to Reserve design, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Re-evaluation of forest biomass carbon stocks and lessons from the world's most carbon-dense forests (531 citations)
  • Forest resilience, biodiversity, and climate change: a synthesis of the biodiversity/resilience/stability relationship in forest ecosystems (298 citations)
  • Catastrophic Declines in Wilderness Areas Undermine Global Environment Targets (201 citations)

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

Brendan Mackey mainly investigates Environmental resource management, Climate change, Ecology, Biodiversity and Environmental planning. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Environmental resource management, narrowing it down to issues related to the Wilderness, and often Environmental protection. His Climate change research incorporates elements of Natural resource economics and Land use.

As part of his studies on Land use, Brendan Mackey often connects relevant subjects like Agroforestry. His Ecology study focuses mostly on Habitat, Vegetation, Range, Species richness and Abundance. Biodiversity is closely attributed to Protected area in his study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental resource management (31.19%)
  • Climate change (27.72%)
  • Ecology (26.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Climate change (27.72%)
  • Environmental resource management (31.19%)
  • Ecosystem services (9.41%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Climate change, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Environmental planning and Small Island Developing States. His Climate change research includes themes of Coral reef, Natural resource economics and Livelihood. His Natural resource economics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biodiversity, Biosphere, Greenhouse gas and Carbon stock.

The Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Natural, Ecosystem, Habitat and Extreme weather. His studies in Ecosystem services integrate themes in fields like Range, Ecology, Distribution, Subsistence agriculture and Wetland. His studies deal with areas such as Ecology and Sea level as well as Accretion.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The phosphorus‐rich signature of fire in the soil–plant system: a global meta‐analysis (35 citations)
  • A review of themes in disaster resilience literature and international practice since 2012 (34 citations)
  • The Role of Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge in Ecosystem-Based Adaptation: A Review of the Literature and Case Studies from the Pacific Islands (34 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Brendan Mackey focuses on Climate change, Environmental planning, Climate change adaptation, Disaster risk reduction and Small Island Developing States. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Agriculture, Food security, Livelihood, Subsistence agriculture and Developing country. His Subsistence agriculture research integrates issues from Natural, Ecosystem services, Convention, Wilderness area and Nature reserve.

His Developing country study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Adaptation strategies, Natural resource economics and Biological constraints. His Environmental planning study incorporates themes from Indigenous, Traditional knowledge, Scholarship, Pacific ocean and Sustainability. Brendan Mackey has included themes like Risk management and Risk assessment in his Disaster risk reduction study.
