Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Biodiversity

George D. Weiblen focuses on Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Agaonidae and Herbivore. Ecology and Biological dispersal are commonly linked in his work. The Species richness study which covers Tropical climate that intersects with Species diversity, Folivore, Temperate forest, Range and Confidence interval.

George D. Weiblen has included themes like Climate change, Global change, Intact forest landscape, Forest ecology and Forest dynamics in his Biodiversity study. His studies deal with areas such as Syconium, Ficus and Ceratosolen as well as Agaonidae. His Herbivore study incorporates themes from Host, Janzen–Connell hypothesis, Trophic level, Food web and Guild.

His most cited work include:

  • Low host specificity of herbivorous insects in a tropical forest (511 citations)
  • Why Are There So Many Species of Herbivorous Insects in Tropical Rainforests (402 citations)
  • Untangling Multiple Factors in Spatial Distributions: Lilies, Gophers, and Rocks (348 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Botany, Ficus, Rainforest and Species richness. His study in Herbivore, Biodiversity, Pollinator, Abundance and Beta diversity falls under the purview of Ecology. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Pollinator, Coevolution and Evolutionary biology is strongly linked to Mutualism.

His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Seed dispersal, Phylogenetics, Frugivore and Phylogenetic tree. His studies examine the connections between Rainforest and genetics, as well as such issues in Generalist and specialist species, with regards to Host and Species complex. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Arthropod, Guild, Global biodiversity and Species diversity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (65.55%)
  • Botany (24.37%)
  • Ficus (21.01%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (65.55%)
  • Species richness (19.33%)
  • Ficus (21.01%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Species richness, Ficus, Basal area and Abundance. His work often combines Ecology and Latitude studies. His Species richness research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Insect and Guild.

His study in Ficus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Coevolution, Moraceae and Pollination. George D. Weiblen interconnects Mutualism and Clade in the investigation of issues within Coevolution. George D. Weiblen has researched Abundance in several fields, including Biodiversity, Habitat, Vegetation and Abiotic component.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global importance of large‐diameter trees (138 citations)
  • A complete Cannabis chromosome assembly and adaptive admixture for elevated cannabidiol (CBD) content (45 citations)
  • Community structure of insect herbivores is driven by conservatism, escalation and divergence of defensive traits in Ficus. (28 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Botany

George D. Weiblen mainly focuses on Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Beta diversity and Herbivore. His Ecology study typically links adjacent topics like Reproductive isolation. While working on this project, George D. Weiblen studies both Species richness and Latitude.

The Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Niche differentiation, Abundance, Species diversity and Basal area. His Beta diversity study combines topics in areas such as Tree diversity, Ecology, Null model, Spatial ecology and Rainforest. His research in Herbivore intersects with topics in Secondary succession, Ecological succession, Chronosequence, Phylogenetic diversity and Ficus.
