What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Her main research concerns Ecology, Climate change, Species distribution, Generalized additive model and Habitat. Her Ecology research focuses on Species richness, Butterfly, Range, Biodiversity and Species diversity. Her Climate change research incorporates themes from Human population dynamics, Boreal, Climatology and Physical geography.

Her work deals with themes such as Environmental niche modelling, Environmental resource management, Statistics, Regression and Random forest, which intersect with Species distribution. Her Generalized additive model research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Land cover, Contrast, Spatial distribution and Plot. Her Habitat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Abundance, Digital elevation model and Geographic information system.

Her most cited work include:

  • The role of biotic interactions in shaping distributions and realised assemblages of species: implications for species distribution modelling. (887 citations)
  • The importance of biotic interactions for modelling species distributions under climate change (852 citations)
  • Evaluation of consensus methods in predictive species distribution modelling (766 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Climate change, Species richness, Biodiversity and Habitat. Her study in Generalized additive model extends to Ecology with its themes. The concepts of her Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Climatology, Tundra, Arctic and Physical geography.

Her research in Species richness intersects with topics in Lichen, Generalist and specialist species, Grazing and Species diversity. Her study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Agroforestry, Boreal, Environmental resource management, Spatial variability and Remote sensing. Her studies deal with areas such as Biological dispersal and Regression as well as Species distribution.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (54.96%)
  • Climate change (28.10%)
  • Species richness (24.79%)

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

  • Ecology (54.96%)
  • Tundra (11.57%)
  • Climate change (28.10%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Tundra, Climate change, Vegetation and Ecosystem. Her study in Species distribution, Habitat, Species richness, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Abundance falls under the purview of Ecology. Her studies in Species distribution integrate themes in fields like Range and Environmental niche modelling.

Much of her study explores Species richness relationship to Generalized additive model. Her Climate change research includes themes of Biodiversity, Arctic, Logging, Physical geography and Microclimate. Her Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Database, Glanville fritillary, Metapopulation, Water balance and Butterfly.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Global buffering of temperatures under forest canopies (98 citations)
  • A comprehensive evaluation of predictive performance of 33 species distribution models at species and community levels (85 citations)
  • Monitoring biodiversity in the Anthropocene using remote sensing in species distribution models (30 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Miska Luoto mainly focuses on Climate change, Vegetation, Ecology, Tundra and Atmospheric sciences. Her Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Conservation planning, Marine ecosystem, Protected area, Physical geography and Microclimate. She interconnects Structural basin, Database, Metapopulation, Melitaea and Canopy in the investigation of issues within Vegetation.

Her study in the fields of Species distribution and Butterfly under the domain of Ecology overlaps with other disciplines such as Diversity and Aland Islands. Miska Luoto combines subjects such as Machine learning, Statistical model, Generalized additive model and Species richness with her study of Species distribution. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Snow, Dominance and Soil organic matter.
