Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • IUCN Red List

Nigel G. Yoccoz spends much of his time researching Ecology, Herbivore, North Atlantic oscillation, Ecosystem and Density dependence. His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Tundra, overlaps with other areas such as Context. His Herbivore research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Foraging, Population ecology, Trophic level, Population growth and Terrestrial ecosystem.

His studies deal with areas such as Puffin, Phenology, Physical geography, Uria aalge and Fratercula arctica as well as North Atlantic oscillation. His research integrates issues of Biomass, Plant community, Productivity and Intraspecific competition in his study of Ecosystem. His Density dependence study combines topics in areas such as Population density and Juvenile.

His most cited work include:

  • Temporal Variation in Fitness Components and Population Dynamics of Large Herbivores (1293 citations)
  • Population dynamics of large herbivores: variable recruitment with constant adult survival. (1015 citations)
  • Monitoring of biological diversity in space and time (1004 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Tundra, Ecosystem, Herbivore and Predation. His study looks at the intersection of Ecology and topics like Vole with Microtus. His work deals with themes such as Trophic level and Climate change, which intersect with Ecosystem.

His Climate change study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Phenology. Nigel G. Yoccoz works on Predation which deals in particular with Predator. His research on Population cycle often connects related areas such as Density dependence.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (76.92%)
  • Tundra (11.68%)
  • Ecosystem (11.97%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecology (76.92%)
  • Climate change (10.26%)
  • Arctic (9.12%)

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

Nigel G. Yoccoz mainly focuses on Ecology, Climate change, Arctic, Tundra and Ecosystem. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Vole. His Climate change research incorporates themes from Peer review, Data collection and Phenology.

His studies in Arctic integrate themes in fields like Vulpes and Sea ice. His study in Tundra is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Snow and Plant community. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Spatial ecology, Beta diversity and Environmental resource management.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Plant DNA metabarcoding of lake sediments: How does it represent the contemporary vegetation. (44 citations)
  • Assessing global patterns in mammalian carnivore occupancy and richness by integrating local camera trap surveys (43 citations)
  • Warmer winters reduce the advance of tree spring phenology induced by warmer springs in the Alps (37 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • IUCN Red List

Nigel G. Yoccoz mostly deals with Ecology, Climate change, Biodiversity, Tundra and Peer review. His Ecology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Biological dispersal. His work carried out in the field of Climate change brings together such families of science as Sea surface temperature, Ecosystem and Kittiwake.

As part of one scientific family, Nigel G. Yoccoz deals mainly with the area of Biodiversity, narrowing it down to issues related to the Species richness, and often Marine ecosystem, Food web, Apex predator and Trophic level. In his research, Social ecological model, Spatial variability, Vole, Ungulate and Arctic ecology is intimately related to Abundance, which falls under the overarching field of Tundra. His Peer review study incorporates themes from Individual heterogeneity and Life history.
