Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

Holger Kreft spends much of his time researching Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Macroecology and Biogeography. His is doing research in Invasive species, Taxonomic rank, Vascular plant, Taxon and Ordination, both of which are found in Ecology. As a member of one scientific family, Holger Kreft mostly works in the field of Ordination, focusing on UPGMA and, on occasion, Ecology.

His Biodiversity study incorporates themes from Agroforestry, Flora, Land use, Ecosystem and Rainforest. The various areas that he examines in his Species richness study include Climate change, Endemism, Species diversity, Introduced species and Biological dispersal. In his study, Zoology and Habitat destruction is strongly linked to Mainland, which falls under the umbrella field of Biogeography.

His most cited work include:

  • Global patterns and determinants of vascular plant diversity (739 citations)
  • Climatologies at high resolution for the earth’s land surface areas (713 citations)
  • Environmental heterogeneity as a universal driver of species richness across taxa, biomes and spatial scales (687 citations)

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

Holger Kreft focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Agroforestry and Range. His study in Vascular plant, Biogeography, Taxon, Insular biogeography and Habitat are all subfields of Ecology. His work is dedicated to discovering how Biodiversity, Climate change are connected with Species distribution and other disciplines.

Holger Kreft focuses mostly in the field of Species richness, narrowing it down to topics relating to Introduced species and, in certain cases, Invasive species. His work focuses on many connections between Agroforestry and other disciplines, such as Rainforest, that overlap with his field of interest in Epiphyte. His Range research integrates issues from Spatial ecology and Land cover.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (75.25%)
  • Biodiversity (43.94%)
  • Species richness (42.93%)

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

  • Ecology (75.25%)
  • Biodiversity (43.94%)
  • Species richness (42.93%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Macroecology and Taxon. Holger Kreft incorporates Ecology and Tree in his studies. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Agroforestry, Forestry and Land use.

The Species richness study combines topics in areas such as Archipelago, Epiphyte, Paddy field and Species diversity. His Macroecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Remote sensing, Vegetation and Introduced species. The study incorporates disciplines such as Flora, Tree species and Vascular plant in addition to Taxon.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trade-offs between multifunctionality and profit in tropical smallholder landscapes (359 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • GIFT – A Global Inventory of Floras and Traits for macroecology and biogeography (29 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

Holger Kreft mainly focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Macroecology, Taxon and Biogeography. His Range, Species richness, Habitat, Endemism and Flora investigations are all subjects of Ecology research. He merges Species richness with Southeast asian in his research.

The Biodiversity study which covers Land use that intersects with Agroforestry, Natural resource economics and Ecosystem. He interconnects Alien species and Key in the investigation of issues within Taxon. The study incorporates disciplines such as Abundance, Last Glacial Maximum and Seasonality in addition to Biogeography.
