Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Ecology, Allometry, Ecosystem, Species richness and Biomass. Brian J. Enquist integrates several fields in his works, including Ecology and Context. His study on Metabolic theory of ecology is often connected to Branching as part of broader study in Allometry.

His Ecosystem research includes themes of Population density, Plant community, Productivity and Terrestrial plant. His Species richness study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Range, Deforestation, Secondary forest, Forest ecology and Forest floor. His study explores the link between Biomass and topics such as Botany that cross with problems in Biomass partitioning.

His most cited work include:

  • A general model for the origin of allometric scaling laws in biology (3465 citations)
  • Rebuilding community ecology from functional traits. (2633 citations)
  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)

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

Brian J. Enquist focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Allometry, Scaling and Species richness. His study in Biodiversity, Ecology, Biomass, Climate change and Range is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology. Brian J. Enquist combines subjects such as Productivity, Plant community, Vegetation and Growing season with his study of Ecosystem.

His Allometry study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology and Biological system. His work deals with themes such as Statistics and Statistical physics, which intersect with Scaling. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Taxon, Woody plant, Competition, Species diversity and Abiotic component.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (119.82%)
  • Ecosystem (31.31%)
  • Allometry (25.00%)

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

  • Ecology (119.82%)
  • Ecosystem (31.31%)
  • Biodiversity (22.07%)

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

Brian J. Enquist mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Climate change and Species richness. His study in Plant community, Abiotic component, Global change, Competition and Woody plant falls under the purview of Ecology. His Ecosystem research incorporates elements of Growing season, Elevation, Productivity, Vegetation and Physical geography.

His studies deal with areas such as Forest ecology and Threatened species as well as Biodiversity. His research in the fields of Macroecology overlaps with other disciplines such as Current. His studies in Scaling integrate themes in fields like Taxon, Variation and Allometry.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • sPlot – A new tool for global vegetation analyses (72 citations)
  • The commonness of rarity: Global and future distribution of rarity across land plants. (53 citations)
  • The commonness of rarity: Global and future distribution of rarity across land plants. (53 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Brian J. Enquist mostly deals with Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Climate change and Species richness. His Ecology study is mostly concerned with Global change, Tropics, Competition, Taxonomic rank and Taxon. Brian J. Enquist interconnects Adaptation, Forest ecology, Tree species and Threatened species in the investigation of issues within Biodiversity.

The various areas that Brian J. Enquist examines in his Ecosystem study include Conservation planning, Global biodiversity, Tree diversity and Agroforestry. His Climate change study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Land use, Extinction, Deciduous, Environmental resource management and Greenhouse gas. His work in Species richness tackles topics such as Plant community which are related to areas like Macroecology and Abundance.
