Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

Mauricio Quesada mostly deals with Ecology, Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, Biodiversity, Pollinator and Botany. His study connects Reproductive success and Ecology. As a part of the same scientific family, Mauricio Quesada mostly works in the field of Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, focusing on Fragmentation and, on occasion, Forestry.

His study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Forest management, Species richness, Nature reserve and Ecological succession. Mauricio Quesada combines subjects such as Ecology, Bombacaceae, Tropical ecology and Phenology with his study of Pollinator. His work on Cucurbita texana and Chlorophyll content as part of general Botany study is frequently linked to Hyperspectral imaging and Tropical trees, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Averting biodiversity collapse in tropical forest protected areas (662 citations)
  • Genetic consequences of habitat fragmentation in plant populations: susceptible signals in plant traits and methodological approaches (531 citations)
  • A quantitative review of pollination syndromes: do floral traits predict effective pollinators? (233 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, Botany, Pollination and Pollinator. His study in Abundance, Species richness, Habitat, Biodiversity and Ecosystem falls under the purview of Ecology. His Species richness research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plant community, Biological dispersal, Oncideres albomarginata and Species diversity.

His Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests study combines topics in areas such as Vegetation, Phenology and Fragmentation. His Fragmentation research integrates issues from Outcrossing and Seed predation. His study on Pollinator also encompasses disciplines like

  • Reproductive success that connect with fields like Reproduction and Hummingbird,
  • Bombacaceae and related Ceiba.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (63.49%)
  • Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests (39.68%)
  • Botany (24.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (63.49%)
  • Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests (39.68%)
  • Abundance (18.25%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, Abundance, Species richness and Pollination. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Ecology, Genetic variation is strongly linked to Genetic diversity. His work deals with themes such as Dry season and Ecology, which intersect with Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests.

His study in Abundance is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Epiphyte, Ecological succession, Host, Ecosystem and Vegetation. His work is dedicated to discovering how Species richness, Wet season are connected with Agronomy and other disciplines. His Pollination research integrates issues from Zoology and Intraspecific competition.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

    1. THREATS TO THE CONSERVATION OF TROPICAL DRY FOREST IN COSTA RICA (47 citations)
  • Habitat fragmentation reduces plant progeny quality: a global synthesis. (23 citations)
  • The role of pollination effectiveness on the attributes of interaction networks: from floral visitation to plant fitness. (14 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

His main research concerns Ecology, Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests, Guild, Ecosystem and Abundance. Many of his studies on Ecology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Genetic diversity. His Genetic diversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Altitudinal migration and Phylogeography.

His Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Dry season, Ecology and Species richness. His Guild research incorporates themes from Biodiversity, Tropical climate, Herbivore, Threatened species and Biological dispersal. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Canopy and Arthropod.
