Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Biodiversity, Ecology, Human footprint, Environmental resource management and Business. His work deals with themes such as Agroforestry, Deforestation, Terrestrial ecosystem and Environmental protection, which intersect with Biodiversity. His Terrestrial ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Land cover, Agriculture and World economy.

His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Environmental change, Habitat, Stream restoration and Wildlife, intersects with other areas such as Large woody debris. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Conservation science, Range and Cartography. His Environmental resource management research incorporates themes from Habitat conservation and Nature reserve.

His most cited work include:

  • Sixteen years of change in the global terrestrial human footprint and implications for biodiversity conservation (516 citations)
  • Sixteen years of change in the global terrestrial human footprint and implications for biodiversity conservation (516 citations)
  • Sixteen years of change in the global terrestrial human footprint and implications for biodiversity conservation (516 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Biodiversity, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Agroforestry and Threatened species. His research in the fields of Convention on Biological Diversity overlaps with other disciplines such as Natural resource economics. His work on Protected area as part of general Environmental resource management research is frequently linked to Business, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Many of his research projects under Ecology are closely connected to Natural with Natural, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His research in Threatened species intersects with topics in Range, Endangered species, Global biodiversity and Wildlife. His Agriculture research incorporates elements of Land cover, Terrestrial ecosystem and World economy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biodiversity (55.64%)
  • Environmental resource management (39.85%)
  • Ecology (24.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Biodiversity (55.64%)
  • Ecosystem (15.79%)
  • Environmental resource management (39.85%)

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

Oscar Venter spends much of his time researching Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Business and Habitat. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Agroforestry, Climate change, Disturbance, Threatened species and Human pressure. The study of Human pressure is intertwined with the study of Human footprint in a number of ways.

His Ecosystem research includes themes of Wilderness and Temperate climate. His Environmental resource management study incorporates themes from Habitat destruction, Global ecosystem, Species richness and Ecoregion. The Habitat study which covers Protected area that intersects with Environmental protection.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Area-based conservation in the twenty-first century (32 citations)
  • Renewable energy development threatens many globally important biodiversity areas (28 citations)
  • Environmental destruction not avoided with the Sustainable Development Goals (20 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Ecosystem

Oscar Venter mostly deals with Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Wilderness, Environmental resource management and Climate change. The Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Agroforestry, Threatened species and Environmental planning. He has researched Threatened species in several fields, including Convention on Biological Diversity, Indigenous and Ecosystem services.

His studies deal with areas such as Rainforest and Habitat as well as Ecosystem. Oscar Venter integrates several fields in his works, including Environmental resource management and Big data. His studies deal with areas such as Deforestation, Ecosystem integrity, Land degradation and Amazon rainforest as well as Climate change.
