What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Ingolf Steffan-Dewenter mostly deals with Ecology, Biodiversity, Pollination, Species richness and Pollinator. His study on Habitat, Habitat fragmentation, Habitat destruction and Ecosystem services is often connected to Context as part of broader study in Ecology. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Agriculture, Spatial heterogeneity, Ecosystem and Environmental resource management.

His research in Pollination intersects with topics in Landscape ecology and Organic farming. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Abundance, Apidae, Species diversity, Trophic level and Apoidea. His Pollinator research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Raphanus and Agroforestry.

His most cited work include:

  • Importance of pollinators in changing landscapes for world crops (3188 citations)
  • Landscape perspectives on agricultural intensification and biodiversity – ecosystem service management (2776 citations)
  • Wild Pollinators Enhance Fruit Set of Crops Regardless of Honey Bee Abundance (1222 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Habitat and Pollination. His is involved in several facets of Ecology study, as is seen by his studies on Pollinator, Habitat fragmentation, Ecosystem, Abundance and Species diversity. Ingolf Steffan-Dewenter focuses mostly in the field of Pollinator, narrowing it down to topics relating to Agronomy and, in certain cases, PEST analysis.

His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Agroforestry, Agriculture, Land use and Ecosystem services. In his study, Alpha diversity is inextricably linked to Spatial heterogeneity, which falls within the broad field of Species richness. His work in Habitat addresses issues such as Foraging, which are connected to fields such as Pollen and Honey bee.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (72.30%)
  • Biodiversity (38.85%)
  • Species richness (36.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Ecology (72.30%)
  • Biodiversity (38.85%)
  • Pollinator (25.34%)

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

Ingolf Steffan-Dewenter mostly deals with Ecology, Biodiversity, Pollinator, Species richness and Ecosystem services. The Habitat, Abundance, Foraging and Biomass research he does as part of his general Ecology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Diversity, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His research integrates issues of Agroforestry, Land use, Hoverfly, Ecosystem and Global change in his study of Biodiversity.

His Pollinator study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Pollination. The concepts of his Pollination study are interwoven with issues in Agriculture, Mesocosm and Introduced species. His Species richness research focuses on Ectotherm and how it relates to Ecological network, Environmental gradient and Spatial ecology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A global synthesis reveals biodiversity-mediated benefits for crop production (133 citations)
  • Climate–land-use interactions shape tropical mountain biodiversity and ecosystem functions (99 citations)
  • The Interplay of Landscape Composition and Configuration: New Pathways to Manage Functional Biodiversity and Agroecosystem Services Across Europe (96 citations)
