Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Statistics

Ilkka Hanski mainly investigates Ecology, Metapopulation, Habitat, Extinction and Glanville fritillary. Habitat fragmentation is closely connected to Extinction threshold in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Ecology. His Metapopulation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Occupancy, Ecology, Butterfly, Landscape ecology and Conservation biology.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Habitat, Incidence function are connected with Biological system and other disciplines. His Extinction study incorporates themes from Global biodiversity, Density dependence, Alternative stable state, Spatial ecology and Small population size. His Glanville fritillary study also includes

  • Inbreeding depression which is related to area like Population size,
  • Melitaea diamina which is related to area like Habitat change and Evolutionary rescue.

His most cited work include:

  • Metapopulation Biology: Ecology, Genetics, and Evolution (1736 citations)
  • Metapopulation dynamics: brief history and conceptual domain (1431 citations)
  • Inbreeding and extinction in a butterfly metapopulation (1431 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Metapopulation, Glanville fritillary, Habitat and Butterfly. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Extinction threshold, Biological dispersal, Melitaea and Extinction. The study incorporates disciplines such as Local adaptation and Life history theory in addition to Biological dispersal.

His Metapopulation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Habitat fragmentation, Occupancy, Ecology, Spatial ecology and Conservation biology. His work carried out in the field of Glanville fritillary brings together such families of science as Fecundity, Genetics, Genetic variation and Inbreeding depression. Ilkka Hanski interconnects Fragmentation, Local extinction and Competition in the investigation of issues within Habitat.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (78.39%)
  • Metapopulation (39.35%)
  • Glanville fritillary (24.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Ecology (78.39%)
  • Glanville fritillary (24.52%)
  • Biological dispersal (14.84%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Glanville fritillary, Biological dispersal, Metapopulation and Immunology. As part of his studies on Ecology, he frequently links adjacent subjects like Extinction. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Range and Generalist and specialist species.

His research in Glanville fritillary intersects with topics in Genetics, Heritability, Melitaea, Butterfly and Genetic load. Ilkka Hanski has researched Biological dispersal in several fields, including Evolutionary biology, Natural selection, Competition and Life history theory. Within one scientific family, Ilkka Hanski focuses on topics pertaining to Species richness under Metapopulation, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Approximate Bayesian computation, Adaptive radiation, Lineage, Phylogenetic tree and Monophyly.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Environmental biodiversity, human microbiota, and allergy are interrelated (572 citations)
  • Species-area relationships and extinctions caused by habitat loss and fragmentation. (214 citations)
  • The Glanville fritillary genome retains an ancient karyotype and reveals selective chromosomal fusions in Lepidoptera (157 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Habitat

Ilkka Hanski focuses on Ecology, Metapopulation, Glanville fritillary, Habitat destruction and Extinction threshold. His Ecology research includes themes of Hygiene hypothesis, Allergy and Environmental exposure. His Metapopulation study contributes to a more complete understanding of Biological dispersal.

Ilkka Hanski has included themes like Genetics, Inbreeding, Genetic load, Inbreeding depression and Butterfly in his Glanville fritillary study. His research investigates the connection between Habitat destruction and topics such as Habitat fragmentation that intersect with problems in Extinction. His Extinction threshold research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Fragmentation and Habitat.
