Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

Mike Letnic mostly deals with Ecology, Trophic cascade, Apex predator, Mesopredator release hypothesis and Dingo. His study in Arid, Predation, Trophic level, Biodiversity and Range is done as part of Ecology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Wildlife conservation, Habitat, La Niña and Grassland.

His research in Trophic level intersects with topics in Mammal, Conservation status, Species richness, Ecosystem and Mesocarnivore. His Dingo study incorporates themes from Taxon, Domestication, Zoology and Canis. His studies deal with areas such as Abundance, Functional ecology and Introduced species as well as Canis lupus dingo.

His most cited work include:

  • Status and ecological effects of the world's largest carnivores. (1547 citations)
  • Extreme climatic events shape arid and semiarid ecosystems (344 citations)
  • Top predators as biodiversity regulators: the dingo Canis lupus dingo as a case study. (209 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Predation, Dingo, Apex predator and Trophic cascade. Mesopredator release hypothesis, Habitat, Arid, Ecosystem and Abundance are the core of his Ecology study. His work deals with themes such as Zoology, Foraging and Herbivore, which intersect with Predation.

As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Dingo, concentrating on Threatened species and intersecting with Endangered species, Mammal and Extinction. The Apex predator study combines topics in areas such as Carnivore and Komodo dragon. The study incorporates disciplines such as Trophic level and Species richness in addition to Trophic cascade.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (79.43%)
  • Predation (37.14%)
  • Dingo (31.43%)

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

  • Ecology (79.43%)
  • Predation (37.14%)
  • Dingo (31.43%)

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

Mike Letnic focuses on Ecology, Predation, Dingo, Zoology and Apex predator. His Ecology and Herbivore, Ecosystem, Trophic cascade, Vegetation and Mammal investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities. His studies in Trophic cascade integrate themes in fields like Evolutionary biology and Abundance.

His Predation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Grazing pressure, Lizard, Threatened species and Wildlife. His Dingo research incorporates elements of Domestication, Sustainable management, Canis and Introgression. His Mesopredator release hypothesis study in the realm of Apex predator interacts with subjects such as Fencing.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Continental patterns in the diet of a top predator: Australia's dingo (23 citations)
  • Taxonomic status of the Australian dingo : the case for Canis dingo Meyer, 1793 (21 citations)
  • In situ predator conditioning of naive prey prior to reintroduction. (17 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

Predation, Ecology, Apex predator, Dingo and Zoology are his primary areas of study. As a member of one scientific family, Mike Letnic mostly works in the field of Predation, focusing on Wildlife and, on occasion, Canis lupus dingo, Livestock, Arid and Generalist and specialist species. His study in Ecology focuses on Trophic cascade, Komodo dragon and Ecological release.

His research in Apex predator is mostly concerned with Mesopredator release hypothesis. Mike Letnic focuses mostly in the field of Dingo, narrowing it down to matters related to Canis and, in some cases, Taxonomy, Domestication and Nomenclature. His Zoology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bettongia lesueur and Genetic genealogy.
