2019 - Fellow of the Ecological Society of America (ESA)
Brian J. McGill mainly investigates Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecology, Macroecology and Unified neutral theory of biodiversity. His work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Null hypothesis and Neutral theory of molecular evolution. His studies examine the connections between Biodiversity and genetics, as well as such issues in Environmental resource management, with regards to Management science.
The concepts of his Ecology study are interwoven with issues in Abundance and Functional ecology. Brian J. McGill works mostly in the field of Unified neutral theory of biodiversity, limiting it down to topics relating to Relative abundance distribution and, in certain cases, Curve fitting and Mode. In his work, Community is strongly intertwined with Realized niche width, which is a subfield of Niche.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Abundance and Ecology. His works in Macroecology, Relative abundance distribution, Species diversity, Ecosystem and Spatial ecology are all subjects of inquiry into Ecology. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sampling, Climate change, Relative species abundance and Environmental resource management.
In his study, Seasonality and Species distribution is strongly linked to Range, which falls under the umbrella field of Species richness. His research integrates issues of Community structure, Habitat and Spatial variability in his study of Abundance. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Functional ecology and Interspecific competition.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Abundance and Community structure. Brian J. McGill merges Ecology with Data science in his study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Anthropocene, Relative species abundance and Extinction.
His work on Relative abundance distribution as part of general Abundance study is frequently linked to Monitoring program, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Community structure study which covers Global biodiversity that intersects with Current, Environmental resource management and Function. His Ecology research includes elements of Evolutionary biology and Functional ecology.
Brian J. McGill mainly focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Extinction and Spatial ecology. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Philosophy of science and Contingency. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Abundance, Anthropocene, Representativeness heuristic and Identification.
His Extinction research includes themes of Rare species, Climate change, Neutral theory of molecular evolution and Land use. His Spatial ecology research incorporates elements of Relative abundance distribution and Rarefaction. His studies deal with areas such as Taxonomic rank, Nestedness, Community and Geographical distance as well as Community structure.
