Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Botany

John R. U. Wilson focuses on Ecology, Introduced species, Invasive species, Environmental resource management and Biodiversity. John R. U. Wilson has researched Ecology in several fields, including Excellence, Propagule pressure and Genetic diversity. The study incorporates disciplines such as Niche, Modes of reproduction and Habitat in addition to Introduced species.

He interconnects Seed dispersal, Pest control, Plant ecology, Acacia and Risk assessment in the investigation of issues within Invasive species. His research investigates the connection between Environmental resource management and topics such as Alien species that intersect with problems in General partnership. His Biodiversity study incorporates themes from Biological dispersal and Ecosystem services.

His most cited work include:

  • A proposed unified framework for biological invasions. (1158 citations)
  • Something in the way you move: dispersal pathways affect invasion success (603 citations)
  • Adaptive evolution in invasive species. (597 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Invasive species, Introduced species, Alien species and Biodiversity. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Biological dispersal and Propagule pressure. His Invasive species study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Plant ecology, Acacia, Woody plant and Risk assessment.

His work deals with themes such as Seed dispersal, Habitat, Environmental resource management, Genetic structure and Acacia pycnantha, which intersect with Introduced species. The Alien species study combines topics in areas such as Taxonomic rank and Biosecurity. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Environmental planning and Ecosystem services.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (58.29%)
  • Invasive species (36.18%)
  • Introduced species (29.15%)

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

  • Ecology (58.29%)
  • Invasive species (36.18%)
  • Alien species (15.08%)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Invasive species, Alien species, Biodiversity and Environmental planning. His Ecology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Propagule pressure. His Invasive species research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Range, Agroforestry, Native plant, Biotechnology and Biome.

In Alien species, John R. U. Wilson works on issues like Darwin Core, which are connected to Field, Workflow and Data science. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biosecurity, Livelihood, IUCN Red List, Species distribution and Civilization. In his study, Biological dispersal, Environmental change and Organism is inextricably linked to Sustainable development, which falls within the broad field of Environmental planning.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Biological Invasions in South Africa: An Overview (23 citations)
  • The biogeography of South African terrestrial plant invasions. (21 citations)
  • Invasion syndromes: a systematic approach for predicting biological invasions and facilitating effective management (20 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Botany

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Invasive species, Alien species, Introduced species and Habitat. His research in the fields of Ecosystem, Riparian zone and Native plant overlaps with other disciplines such as Phragmites and Miscanthus. His Invasive species research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biodiversity, Species richness, Species distribution, Biome and Terrestrial plant.

John R. U. Wilson has included themes like Risk analysis and Risk analysis in his Alien species study. His research integrates issues of Taxonomic rank, Seed dispersal and Mutualism in his study of Introduced species. His work carried out in the field of Habitat brings together such families of science as Temperate climate, Environmental impact assessment, Risk assessment and Biogeography.
