Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Predation

Charles J. Krebs focuses on Ecology, Population density, Predation, Taiga and Snowshoe hare. Charles J. Krebs has included themes like Population growth and Biological dispersal in his Ecology study. Charles J. Krebs combines subjects such as House mice, Vole, House mouse, Litter and Conservation biology with his study of Population density.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Intraspecific competition, Storage effect, Food chain and Maternal effect in addition to Predation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Trophic level, Physical geography, Canadian lynx and North Atlantic oscillation. His Snowshoe hare research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bay, Herbivore, Animal science and Wildlife.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecology: The Experimental Analysis of Distribution and Abundance (3108 citations)
  • Population Cycles in Small Mammals (763 citations)
  • Demographic Changes in Fluctuating Populations of Microtus californicus (669 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Predation, Snowshoe hare, Population density and Zoology. His study in Taiga, Population cycle, Habitat, Microtus and Abundance are all subfields of Ecology. His Taiga research focuses on subjects like Ecosystem, which are linked to Trophic level.

His studies in Predation integrate themes in fields like Biological dispersal, Foraging, Arctic and Herbivore. His research integrates issues of Population growth and Seasonal breeder in his study of Population density. His Zoology research incorporates themes from Microtus townsendii and Reproduction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (72.01%)
  • Predation (28.26%)
  • Snowshoe hare (16.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Ecology (72.01%)
  • Predation (28.26%)
  • Snowshoe hare (16.58%)

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

Charles J. Krebs mainly investigates Ecology, Predation, Snowshoe hare, Taiga and Population cycle. Much of his study explores Ecology relationship to Population density. His work carried out in the field of Population density brings together such families of science as Trapping and Density estimation.

His work on Predator as part of general Predation research is frequently linked to Context, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Population cycle research focuses on Maternal effect and how it connects with Seasonal breeder. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Tundra, focusing on Microtus and, on occasion, Lemmus sibiricus.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Newly discovered landscape traps produce regime shifts in wet forests (199 citations)
  • Of lemmings and snowshoe hares: the ecology of northern Canada (133 citations)
  • From process to pattern: how fluctuating predation risk impacts the stress axis of snowshoe hares during the 10-year cycle (118 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

Charles J. Krebs mainly investigates Ecology, Predation, Taiga, Population cycle and Tundra. Ecology is frequently linked to Population density in his study. Charles J. Krebs has researched Population density in several fields, including Density estimation and Microtus.

His Predation research integrates issues from Offspring, Range and Abundance. The concepts of his Population cycle study are interwoven with issues in Climate change, Deciduous and Maternal effect. His Habitat study combines topics in areas such as Biodiversity and Biological dispersal.
