Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Statistics

Mikko Kuussaari focuses on Ecology, Butterfly, Habitat, Melitaea and Metapopulation. Mikko Kuussaari works mostly in the field of Ecology, limiting it down to concerns involving Extinction and, occasionally, Extinction vortex. Mikko Kuussaari focuses mostly in the field of Butterfly, narrowing it down to matters related to Climate change and, in some cases, Adaptation, Taxonomic rank and Woody plant.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Abundance, Fragmentation, Biological dispersal and Occupancy in addition to Habitat. His Melitaea study incorporates themes from Host, Glanville fritillary and Herbivore. His Metapopulation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nymphalidae, Density dependence, Alternative stable state, Spatial ecology and Local adaptation.

His most cited work include:

  • Inbreeding and extinction in a butterfly metapopulation (1431 citations)
  • Extinction debt: a challenge for biodiversity conservation. (837 citations)
  • Habitat fragmentation causes immediate and time‐delayed biodiversity loss at different trophic levels (514 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Habitat, Butterfly, Biodiversity and Species richness. His work deals with themes such as Biological dispersal and Metapopulation, which intersect with Ecology. His Habitat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Land cover, Population density and Conservation biology.

As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Butterfly, focusing on Climate change and, on occasion, Range. The various areas that Mikko Kuussaari examines in his Biodiversity study include Agroforestry, Agricultural land, Environmental resource management and Ecosystem services. The Species richness study combines topics in areas such as Habitat destruction, Vegetation and Species diversity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (65.25%)
  • Habitat (38.14%)
  • Butterfly (32.20%)

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

  • Ecology (65.25%)
  • Butterfly (32.20%)
  • Habitat (38.14%)

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

Ecology, Butterfly, Habitat, Biodiversity and Abundance are his primary areas of study. His study connects Biological dispersal and Ecology. His Butterfly research incorporates elements of Zoology, Species evenness, Gamma diversity, Metapopulation and Larva.

His study on Species distribution and Habitat fragmentation is often connected to Chromosomal translocation as part of broader study in Habitat. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Agroforestry, Ecosystem services, Environmental resource management, Animal ecology and Species richness. Mikko Kuussaari has researched Species richness in several fields, including Habitat destruction and Spatial ecology.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • How Essential Biodiversity Variables and remote sensing can help national biodiversity monitoring (93 citations)
  • The effects of soil eutrophication propagate to higher trophic levels (29 citations)
  • A regionally informed abundance index for supporting integrative analyses across butterfly monitoring schemes (28 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Statistics

Mikko Kuussaari mainly investigates Ecology, Butterfly, Biodiversity, Biological dispersal and Habitat. He works in the field of Ecology, focusing on Abundance in particular. His research in Butterfly focuses on subjects like Climate change, which are connected to Range, Intraspecific competition and Density dependence.

His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Agroforestry and Ecosystem services. His work is dedicated to discovering how Biological dispersal, Generalist and specialist species are connected with Dominance, Trophic level, Plant community and Voltinism and other disciplines. In his research on the topic of Habitat, Threatened species, Assisted colonization and Global warming is strongly related with Metapopulation.
