Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Statistics

Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Environmental resource management and Range are his primary areas of study. Ecology is closely attributed to Extinction in his research. His study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Land use, Wildlife, Urban area, Ecosystem services and Urbanization.

His Species richness research incorporates elements of Spatial ecology and Global biodiversity. His work carried out in the field of Environmental resource management brings together such families of science as Sustainability, Measurement of biodiversity and Environmental planning. His research integrates issues of Habitat and Interspecific competition in his study of Abundance.

His most cited work include:

  • Global patterns in biodiversity (2181 citations)
  • Functional diversity: back to basics and looking forward. (1433 citations)
  • The structure and dynamics of geographic ranges (1180 citations)

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

Kevin J. Gaston mostly deals with Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Range and Abundance. His Ecology study deals with Extinction intersecting with Threatened species. Kevin J. Gaston works mostly in the field of Biodiversity, limiting it down to topics relating to Environmental resource management and, in certain cases, Ecosystem services.

His Species richness research includes elements of Taxon, Global biodiversity and Spatial variability. His Abundance research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Population density, Occupancy and Interspecific competition. His Ecology research extends to the thematically linked field of Macroecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (62.73%)
  • Biodiversity (30.71%)
  • Species richness (24.02%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (62.73%)
  • Light pollution (3.67%)
  • Biodiversity (30.71%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Light pollution, Biodiversity, Urbanization and Ecosystem. His study in the fields of Urban ecology, Species richness and Range under the domain of Ecology overlaps with other disciplines such as Artificial light and Light Cycle. As a part of the same scientific family, Kevin J. Gaston mostly works in the field of Species richness, focusing on Abundance and, on occasion, Common species and Ecosystem services.

His Biodiversity research focuses on subjects like Environmental planning, which are linked to Biodiversity conservation and Horizon. His Urbanization study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Urban heat island, Ecology and Demography. His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Urban ecosystem and Wildlife.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Extinction of experience: the loss of human–nature interactions (437 citations)
  • Artificially lit surface of Earth at night increasing in radiance and extent (274 citations)
  • Health Benefits from Nature Experiences Depend on Dose (234 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Statistics

Kevin J. Gaston spends much of his time researching Ecology, Urbanization, Light pollution, Artificial light and Urban ecology. In general Ecology, his work in Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Marine ecosystem and Ecosystem services is often linked to Trait linking many areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Alien, Feeling, Environmental education and Affect, which intersect with Biodiversity.

His Urbanization research includes themes of Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Wildlife. His work on Skyglow as part of general Light pollution research is frequently linked to Decreased energy, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The Urban ecology study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary change and Rural landscapes.
