Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

Florian Altermatt mostly deals with Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Metacommunity and Species richness. His Ecology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Biological dispersal. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Drainage basin, Biome, DNA sequencing and Habitat.

He studied Ecosystem and Species diversity that intersect with Diversity, Biomass, Taxon and Resistance. His Species richness research incorporates elements of Library preparation, Citizen science and Ecological stability. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including River water and Aquatic ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Environmental DNA metabarcoding: transforming how we survey animal and plant communities (492 citations)
  • Environmental DNA metabarcoding: transforming how we survey animal and plant communities (492 citations)
  • Transport distance of invertebrate environmental DNA in a natural river. (310 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Biological dispersal and Species richness. In Ecology, Florian Altermatt works on issues like Metacommunity, which are connected to Taxonomic rank. His work in Biodiversity addresses issues such as Introduced species, which are connected to fields such as Invasive species.

His work on Plant litter as part of general Ecosystem research is frequently linked to Environmental resource management, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. In general Biological dispersal study, his work on Metapopulation often relates to the realm of Spatial network, thereby connecting several areas of interest. In his study, Diversity is strongly linked to Species diversity, which falls under the umbrella field of Species richness.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (119.94%)
  • Biodiversity (50.16%)
  • Ecosystem (48.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Ecology (119.94%)
  • Ecosystem (48.91%)
  • Biodiversity (50.16%)

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

Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Environmental DNA and Spatial ecology are his primary areas of study. His research combines Biological dispersal and Ecology. Florian Altermatt interconnects Ecology, STREAMS and Global change in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem.

As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Biodiversity, narrowing it down to issues related to the Drainage basin, and often Species richness. His Environmental DNA research includes themes of Taxon, Biodiversity hotspot, Invertebrate and Biomonitoring. His Spatial ecology study also includes

  • Distributed computing that intertwine with fields like Ecosystem model,
  • Metacommunity most often made with reference to Evolutionary ecology.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Uncovering the complete biodiversity structure in spatial networks: the example of riverine systems (19 citations)
  • Uncovering the complete biodiversity structure in spatial networks: the example of riverine systems (19 citations)
  • Environmental DNA allows upscaling spatial patterns of biodiversity in freshwater ecosystems (12 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Florian Altermatt spends much of his time researching Ecosystem, Ecology, Biodiversity, Freshwater ecosystem and Spatial ecology. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as STREAMS and Bioindicator. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in River catchment and Best practice.

His research in Biodiversity is mostly focused on Environmental DNA. His Freshwater ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biomass and Primary production. The various areas that Florian Altermatt examines in his Spatial ecology study include Ecosystem model and Metapopulation.
