Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Hugh P. Possingham spends much of his time researching Ecology, Environmental resource management, Biodiversity, Habitat and Reserve design. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Extinction. His studies deal with areas such as Conservation planning, Marxan, Marine reserve, Natural resource economics and Ecosystem as well as Environmental resource management.

His research in Biodiversity intersects with topics in Action, Climate change, Threatened species and Environmental protection. His Threatened species research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Population decline and Endangered species. His Habitat study incorporates themes from Biological dispersal and Phascolarctos cinereus.

His most cited work include:

  • Recruitment dynamics in complex life cycles (983 citations)
  • Predicting species distributions for conservation decisions (872 citations)
  • Predicting species distributions for conservation decisions (872 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental resource management, Ecology, Biodiversity, Threatened species and Habitat. His Environmental resource management research incorporates themes from Natural resource economics, Climate change, Ecosystem and Marxan. Marxan is a primary field of his research addressed under Marine protected area.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biological dispersal, Metapopulation and Extinction. Hugh P. Possingham has included themes like Agroforestry, Ecosystem services and Environmental planning in his Biodiversity study. His Threatened species study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Endangered species.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental resource management (53.61%)
  • Ecology (45.11%)
  • Biodiversity (39.18%)

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

  • Biodiversity (39.18%)
  • Environmental resource management (53.61%)
  • Threatened species (24.38%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Biodiversity, Environmental resource management, Threatened species, Ecology and Environmental planning. He interconnects Agroforestry, Natural resource economics and Climate change in the investigation of issues within Biodiversity. In his research, Marine conservation is intimately related to Marine protected area, which falls under the overarching field of Environmental resource management.

His Threatened species study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endangered species, Vegetation and Extinction. His research related to Habitat, Habitat destruction and Species richness might be considered part of Ecology. His work in Environmental planning addresses subjects such as Ecosystem services, which are connected to disciplines such as Marine ecosystem and Livelihood.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bias in protected‐area location and its effects on long‐term aspirations of biodiversity conventions (91 citations)
  • Bias in protected‐area location and its effects on long‐term aspirations of biodiversity conventions (91 citations)
  • Protect the last of the wild (90 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Hugh P. Possingham mostly deals with Biodiversity, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Threatened species and Environmental planning. He has researched Biodiversity in several fields, including Natural resource economics, Restoration ecology and Sustainable development. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Extinction and Ecology.

His specific area of interest is Environmental resource management, where Hugh P. Possingham studies Protected area. His work deals with themes such as Population growth and Species diversity, which intersect with Threatened species. The various areas that Hugh P. Possingham examines in his Environmental planning study include Scale, Marine conservation, Decision theory, Adaptive management and Stakeholder engagement.
