Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

His main research concerns Ecology, Habitat, Climate change, Butterfly and Range. Chris D. Thomas interconnects Biological dispersal, Metapopulation and Extinction in the investigation of issues within Ecology. Chris D. Thomas has included themes like Grassland and Environmental resource management in his Habitat study.

His Climate change research focuses on Period and how it relates to Climatic warming, Cancer, Physiology and Physical geography. In the field of Butterfly, his study on Editha overlaps with subjects such as Speckled wood. His work carried out in the field of Range brings together such families of science as Habitat fragmentation, Abundance, Invertebrate and Taxon.

His most cited work include:

  • Extinction risk from climate change (5460 citations)
  • Rapid Range Shifts of Species Associated with High Levels of Climate Warming (2669 citations)
  • Parallel Declines in Pollinators and Insect-Pollinated Plants in Britain and the Netherlands (1918 citations)

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

Chris D. Thomas mainly focuses on Ecology, Habitat, Butterfly, Climate change and Range. His research integrates issues of Biological dispersal, Metapopulation and Extinction in his study of Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Colonisation and Hesperia comma in addition to Habitat.

His Butterfly research integrates issues from Zoology and Host. His specific area of interest is Climate change, where Chris D. Thomas studies Global warming. His Range research integrates issues from Abundance, Physical geography, Microclimate and Species distribution.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (73.03%)
  • Habitat (31.52%)
  • Butterfly (27.27%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Ecology (73.03%)
  • Climate change (25.15%)
  • Range (24.24%)

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

Ecology, Climate change, Range, Biodiversity and Habitat are his primary areas of study. His research in Butterfly, Environmental change, Species richness, Species distribution and Taxonomic rank are components of Ecology. Chris D. Thomas is interested in Global warming, which is a branch of Climate change.

The Range study combines topics in areas such as Genetic diversity and Nymphalidae. His research in Biodiversity intersects with topics in Extinction, Mammal, Protected area, Anthropocene and Socioeconomics. His Habitat study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Conservation biology and Biological dispersal, Metapopulation.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate-induced phenology shifts linked to range expansions in species with multiple reproductive cycles per year (109 citations)
  • Climate change vulnerability assessment of species (75 citations)
  • Non-native plants add to the British flora without negative consequences for native diversity (72 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Climate change, Biodiversity, Range and Extinction. Chris D. Thomas studies Global warming, a branch of Climate change. His Biodiversity study frequently links to other fields, such as Butterfly.

The various areas that Chris D. Thomas examines in his Range study include Restoration ecology, Conservation biology, Generalist and specialist species and Bioindicator. Chris D. Thomas combines subjects such as Astrobiology, Earth and Environmental planning with his study of Extinction. His research investigates the connection between Habitat and topics such as Metapopulation that intersect with issues in Habitat destruction.
