Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Climate change, Biodiversity, Environmental resource management and Ecosystem. His Climate change study incorporates themes from Proteaceae and Extinction. His studies deal with areas such as Environmental studies and Habitat as well as Biodiversity.

His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental planning, Ecology, Effects of global warming, Biological dispersal and Conservation biology. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Biomass, Poaceae and Agronomy. His Range research integrates issues from Environmental change and Species distribution.

His most cited work include:

  • Summary for policymakers (8355 citations)
  • Extinction risk from climate change (5460 citations)
  • Climate change 2007 : impacts, adaptation and vulnerability : Working Group II contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2621 citations)

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

Ecology, Climate change, Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Environmental resource management are his primary areas of study. His study ties his expertise on Biological dispersal together with the subject of Ecology. His work deals with themes such as Climatology and Extinction, which intersect with Climate change.

His research integrates issues of Ecology, Woodland and Environmental planning in his study of Biodiversity. Guy F. Midgley interconnects Agroforestry and Herbivore in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem. His Range study combines topics in areas such as Proteaceae, Environmental change and Species distribution.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (55.50%)
  • Climate change (42.11%)
  • Biodiversity (30.62%)

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

  • Ecology (55.50%)
  • Biodiversity (30.62%)
  • Climate change (42.11%)

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

Guy F. Midgley mainly focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Climate change, Ecosystem services and Ecosystem. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Precipitation and Stomatal conductance. He combines subjects such as Dichrostachys cinerea, Indigenous and Agroforestry with his study of Biodiversity.

His Climate change study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Convention on Biological Diversity, Physical geography and Extinction. His Ecosystem services research includes themes of Variety, Sustainability, Biome and Environmental planning. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Canopy, Land degradation, Grazing and Environmental resource management.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pervasive human-driven decline of life on Earth points to the need for transformative change. (260 citations)
  • Summary for policymakers of the global assessment report on biodiversity and ecosystem services of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (169 citations)
  • The commonness of rarity: Global and future distribution of rarity across land plants. (53 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, Ecology, Environmental planning and Climate change. He combines subjects such as Woodland, Fire regime and Biome with his study of Biodiversity. In general Ecosystem services, his work in Ecosystem health is often linked to Science policy and Political science linking many areas of study.

His research on Ecology often connects related topics like Stomatal conductance. His Environmental planning research includes themes of Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, Indigenous, Sustainability and Scale. Guy F. Midgley has researched Climate change in several fields, including Convention on Biological Diversity and Extinction.
