Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • World War II
  • Biodiversity

His primary scientific interests are in Land use, Forest management, Environmental resource management, Ecology and Economic geography. His Land use study often links to related topics such as Agriculture. His Forest management research integrates issues from Biodiversity, Forest ecology and Environmental protection.

His work on Spatial ecology, Landscape ecology, Fire ecology and Seasonality as part of general Ecology research is frequently linked to Spatial variability, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His study in Spatial ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Regional science and Ecology. His Economic geography study also includes fields such as

  • Natural, which have a strong connection to Intensive farming, Socioeconomic status and Landscape epidemiology,
  • Landscape change which connect with Landscape history.

His most cited work include:

  • Driving forces of landscape change — current and new directions (519 citations)
  • The driving forces of landscape change in Europe: a systematic review of the evidence (211 citations)
  • Transitions in European land-management regimes between 1800 and 2010 (170 citations)

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

Matthias Bürgi spends much of his time researching Ecology, Land use, Environmental resource management, Agroforestry and Landscape ecology. His Ecology course of study focuses on Physical geography and Fire regime and Plateau. His work carried out in the field of Land use brings together such families of science as Forestry and Cultural landscape.

His Environmental resource management research incorporates themes from Quality, Biodiversity, Environmental protection, Forest management and Ecology. His research integrates issues of Wood pasture, Agriculture, Forest ecology and Litter in his study of Agroforestry. His Landscape ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both European Landscape Convention, Landscape history, Grassland and Sustainable development.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (32.69%)
  • Land use (30.77%)
  • Environmental resource management (22.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Land use (30.77%)
  • Environmental resource management (22.12%)
  • Ecology (32.69%)

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

Land use, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Cultural landscape and Landscape ecology are his primary areas of study. In general Land use, his work in Land cover is often linked to Environmental systems linking many areas of study. Matthias Bürgi has researched Environmental resource management in several fields, including Ecology, Reforestation, Historical document and Land management.

Matthias Bürgi combines subjects such as Natural, Quality and Physical geography with his study of Ecology. His Landscape ecology research incorporates elements of European Landscape Convention, Landscape history, Sustainable development, Regime shift and Grassland degradation. In his study, Sustainability and Ecosystem services is strongly linked to Landscape epidemiology, which falls under the umbrella field of Landscape history.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The driving forces of landscape change in Europe: a systematic review of the evidence (211 citations)
  • Transitions in European land-management regimes between 1800 and 2010 (170 citations)
  • The abandonment of traditional agricultural landscape in Slovakia - analysis of extent and driving forces (98 citations)
