Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ecosystem, Forest dynamics, Biodiversity and Community. Ecology is a component of his Forest management, Basal area, Allometry, Habitat and Ecological succession studies. His study explores the link between Ecosystem and topics such as Biomass that cross with problems in Forest ecology, Climate change scenario, Marine ecosystem and Trophic level.

His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Abundance and Database. The various areas that he examines in his Abundance study include Global biodiversity and Species richness. Drew W. Purves studied Community and Econometrics that intersect with Competition.

His most cited work include:

  • Global effects of land use on local terrestrial biodiversity (1401 citations)
  • Identification of 100 fundamental ecological questions (450 citations)
  • How to fit nonlinear plant growth models and calculate growth rates: an update for ecologists (314 citations)

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

Drew W. Purves mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Competition, Biodiversity and Forest dynamics. His is doing research in Vegetation, Abundance, Range, Biomass and Ecology, both of which are found in Ecology. His work carried out in the field of Ecosystem brings together such families of science as Trophic level and Seasonality.

His study looks at the relationship between Competition and fields such as Community, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. He interconnects Conservation biology, Environmental resource management and Land use, land-use change and forestry in the investigation of issues within Biodiversity. His Forest dynamics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Allometry, Canopy, Understory, Forest inventory and Tree measurement.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (65.69%)
  • Ecosystem (18.63%)
  • Competition (12.75%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecology (65.69%)
  • Ecosystem (18.63%)
  • Bushmeat (3.92%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Ecosystem, Bushmeat, Ecosystem model and Duiker. His Ecology research includes themes of Tree, Trait and Pooling. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Trophic level and Vegetation.

His research integrates issues of Variation, Sample and Ectotherm in his study of Ecosystem model. His Duiker study incorporates themes from Population size, Statistics and Extinction probability, Extinction. His work in Range addresses issues such as Ecosystem diversity, which are connected to fields such as Ecology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The database of the PREDICTS (Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems) project (84 citations)
  • Beyond the fast-slow continuum: demographic dimensions structuring a tropical tree community (35 citations)
  • Non-linear changes in modelled terrestrial ecosystems subjected to perturbations (5 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Vegetation, Trophic level and Range. His specific area of interest is Ecology, where Drew W. Purves studies Shrub. His work on Ecosystem model, Community and Terrestrial ecosystem as part of general Ecosystem study is frequently linked to Bushmeat, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Vegetation research includes elements of Biomass, Trophic cascade and Biome. His Range research incorporates themes from Tropical climate, Life history theory, Tree, Shade tolerance and Trait.
