Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Biodiversity

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Biodiversity, Species distribution, Habitat and Environmental DNA. Much of his study explores Ecology relationship to Ancient DNA. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cartography, Climate change, Species richness and Land use.

His Species distribution research integrates issues from Spatial analysis, Lissotriton, Crayfish, Hyla intermedia and Biogeography. His Environmental DNA study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecology, False positive paradox and Replication. Gentile Francesco Ficetola focuses mostly in the field of Ecology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Conservation biology and, in certain cases, Conservation genetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Species detection using environmental DNA from water samples. (779 citations)
  • Species detection using environmental DNA from water samples. (779 citations)
  • Replication levels, false presences and the estimation of the presence/absence from eDNA metabarcoding data. (326 citations)

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

Gentile Francesco Ficetola spends much of his time researching Ecology, Habitat, Biodiversity, Zoology and Species distribution. His study involves Species richness, Abundance, Amphibian, Taxon and Introduced species, a branch of Ecology. Gentile Francesco Ficetola has researched Habitat in several fields, including Range, Cave and Abiotic component.

His work in Cave addresses subjects such as Microclimate, which are connected to disciplines such as Seasonality. In his study, Ectotherm is strongly linked to Climate change, which falls under the umbrella field of Biodiversity. His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Larva and Predation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (108.86%)
  • Habitat (32.69%)
  • Biodiversity (32.96%)

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

  • Ecology (108.86%)
  • Biodiversity (32.96%)
  • Habitat (32.69%)

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

Ecology, Biodiversity, Habitat, Predation and Invasive species are his primary areas of study. His study in Taxon, Hydromantes, Environmental DNA, Abundance and Trophic level falls within the category of Ecology. His research investigates the link between Biodiversity and topics such as Ecosystem that cross with problems in Ecological niche.

His study in Habitat is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Citizen science, Enforcement, Species richness and Wildlife. His Predation research incorporates themes from Zoology, Crayfish, Population size and Adaptation. His Invasive species research includes themes of Introduced species, Competition and Phenotypic plasticity.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate affects global patterns of COVID-19 early outbreak dynamics (80 citations)
  • The good, the bad and the ugly of COVID-19 lockdown effects on wildlife conservation: Insights from the first European locked down country (43 citations)
  • The good, the bad and the ugly of COVID-19 lockdown effects on wildlife conservation: Insights from the first European locked down country (43 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Biodiversity, Habitat, Ecosystem and Population size. His Ecology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Cryoconite. His research integrates issues of Mammal, Range, Niche and Invasive species in his study of Biodiversity.

His Invasive species research includes elements of Phenotypic plasticity, Competition, Predation and Introduced species. His Habitat study incorporates themes from Environmental change and Species richness. Gentile Francesco Ficetola has included themes like Sedimentary rock, Agroforestry, Ancient DNA and Earth science in his Ecosystem study.
