Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Law

His primary areas of investigation include Biodiversity, Environmental resource management, Climate change, Convention on Biological Diversity and Environmental protection. His Biodiversity research incorporates elements of Agroforestry, Protected area, Natural resource economics and Threatened species. The various areas that James E. M. Watson examines in his Environmental resource management study include Wildlife conservation, Ecosystem services, Conservation psychology and Action.

His studies deal with areas such as Adaptation, Ecosystem, Greenhouse gas and Vulnerability as well as Climate change. As part of the same scientific family, James E. M. Watson usually focuses on Vulnerability, concentrating on Environmental studies and intersecting with Environmental planning. As a part of the same scientific study, James E. M. Watson usually deals with the Environmental protection, concentrating on Habitat destruction and frequently concerns with Habitat fragmentation, Habitat conservation and Extinction.

His most cited work include:

  • A meta-analysis of crop yield under climate change and adaptation (865 citations)
  • The performance and potential of protected areas (823 citations)
  • Conservation biogeography: assessment and prospect (782 citations)

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

James E. M. Watson mostly deals with Biodiversity, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Threatened species and Climate change. His work carried out in the field of Biodiversity brings together such families of science as Agroforestry, Ecosystem services and Environmental planning. His Environmental resource management research includes themes of Conservation planning, Wilderness, Natural resource economics, Ecosystem and Sustainability.

All of his Ecology and Habitat, Habitat destruction, Vegetation, Species richness and Habitat fragmentation investigations are sub-components of the entire Ecology study. His Threatened species study also includes

  • Extinction and related IUCN Red List,
  • Protected area that intertwine with fields like Environmental protection. His Climate change study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Vulnerability assessment, Vulnerability and Adaptation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biodiversity (66.09%)
  • Environmental resource management (41.88%)
  • Ecology (29.86%)

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

  • Biodiversity (66.09%)
  • Threatened species (31.88%)
  • Environmental planning (24.78%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Biodiversity, Threatened species, Environmental planning, Habitat and Global biodiversity. His studies in Biodiversity integrate themes in fields like Agroforestry, Ecosystem, Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management and Human pressure. His Threatened species study combines topics in areas such as Range, Endangered species, Extinction, Strategic planning and Fauna.

His research in Environmental planning tackles topics such as Climate change which are related to areas like Biodiversity conservation. James E. M. Watson focuses mostly in the field of Habitat, narrowing it down to matters related to Protected area and, in some cases, Environmental protection. His Global biodiversity research incorporates themes from Convention on Biological Diversity, Natural resource economics and Safeguard.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bending the curve of terrestrial biodiversity needs an integrated strategy (36 citations)
  • Bending the curve of terrestrial biodiversity needs an integrated strategy (36 citations)
  • Area-based conservation in the twenty-first century (32 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Law
  • Biodiversity

James E. M. Watson focuses on Biodiversity, Ecology, Ecosystem, Habitat and Climate change. His work deals with themes such as Ecosystem services, Wilderness and Environmental planning, which intersect with Biodiversity. He has included themes like Population density and Compensation in his Ecology study.

His research integrates issues of Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests and Temperate climate in his study of Ecosystem. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Agroforestry, Deforestation, Environmental resource management, Ecological network and Wetland. His Environmental resource management study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Forest management, Scale, Key and Logging.
