Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

H. Resit Akçakaya mostly deals with Ecology, Biodiversity, IUCN Red List, Climate change and Endangered species. The various areas that he examines in his Ecology study include Biological dispersal and Metapopulation. H. Resit Akçakaya works on Biodiversity which deals in particular with Global biodiversity.

H. Resit Akçakaya focuses mostly in the field of Global biodiversity, narrowing it down to matters related to Environmental resource management and, in some cases, Range. The IUCN Red List study combines topics in areas such as Species diversity and Threatened species. His work in Climate change tackles topics such as Extinction which are related to areas like Conservation status, Vulnerability assessment and Population size.

His most cited work include:

  • The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates (972 citations)
  • Quantification of Extinction Risk: IUCN's System for Classifying Threatened Species (802 citations)
  • Identifying the World's Most Climate Change Vulnerable Species: A Systematic Trait-Based Assessment of all Birds, Amphibians and Corals (502 citations)

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

H. Resit Akçakaya mainly focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, IUCN Red List, Environmental resource management and Extinction. His Ecology research focuses on subjects like Metapopulation, which are linked to Wildlife. His Global biodiversity study in the realm of Biodiversity interacts with subjects such as Argument map.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Red List Index, Regional Red List, Threatened species and Environmental planning in addition to IUCN Red List. His Environmental resource management research incorporates elements of Critically endangered, Conservation planning, Climate change scenario, Conservation status and Ecosystem. H. Resit Akçakaya interconnects Statistics, Generalized linear mixed model, Climate change and Occupancy in the investigation of issues within Extinction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (57.02%)
  • Biodiversity (34.21%)
  • IUCN Red List (33.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • IUCN Red List (33.33%)
  • Ecology (57.02%)
  • Extinction (32.46%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in IUCN Red List, Ecology, Extinction, Environmental resource management and Biodiversity. H. Resit Akçakaya combines subjects such as Species at risk and Environmental planning with his study of IUCN Red List. His studies examine the connections between Ecology and genetics, as well as such issues in Statistics, with regards to Near-threatened species and Red List Index.

His Extinction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate change, Generalized linear mixed model and Occupancy. The various areas that he examines in his Environmental resource management study include Conservation planning, Ecosystem, Species distribution, Threatened species and Sustainability. His work deals with themes such as Contrast, Inference, Local extinction and Multiple experts, which intersect with Biodiversity.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Multiscale scenarios for nature futures (77 citations)
  • Climate change vulnerability assessment of species (75 citations)
  • Climate change vulnerability assessment of species (75 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

His main research concerns IUCN Red List, Extinction, Environmental planning, Ecology and Range. He combines IUCN Red List and Taxonomic rank in his studies. His Extinction study combines topics in areas such as Red List Index and Climate change.

The Environmental planning study combines topics in areas such as Land use, land-use change and forestry, Environmental studies, Climate change vulnerability, Vulnerability assessment and Species at risk. His study in the field of Conservation status, Ursus maritimus and Arctic is also linked to topics like Scrutiny and Additional research. His Range research incorporates themes from Biodiversity and Environmental resource management.
