Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Habitat

Otso Ovaskainen focuses on Ecology, Metapopulation, Habitat, Extinction and Butterfly. His research on Ecology often connects related topics like Biological dispersal. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Metapopulation, concentrating on Occupancy and intersecting with Random walk, Landscape planning and Environmental resource management.

His work carried out in the field of Habitat brings together such families of science as Phlebia centrifuga, Overdispersion and Spore. His Extinction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Landscape ecology, Stochastic modelling and Statistical physics. His Butterfly study incorporates themes from Population density, Glanville fritillary and Melitaea.

His most cited work include:

  • The metapopulation capacity of a fragmented landscape (835 citations)
  • Roots and associated fungi drive long-term carbon sequestration in boreal forest. (778 citations)
  • State-space models of individual animal movement. (632 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Habitat, Biological dispersal, Species distribution and Metapopulation. His study looks at the relationship between Ecology and topics such as Seed dispersal, which overlap with Frugivore. His work investigates the relationship between Habitat and topics such as Restoration ecology that intersect with problems in Spatial ecology.

His Biological dispersal research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Propagule and Spore. His Species distribution study which covers Taiga that intersects with Forest management. His research integrates issues of Extinction and Occupancy in his study of Metapopulation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (97.46%)
  • Habitat (28.17%)
  • Biological dispersal (22.82%)

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

  • Ecology (97.46%)
  • Species distribution (26.20%)
  • Habitat (28.17%)

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

Otso Ovaskainen mainly focuses on Ecology, Species distribution, Habitat, Biological dispersal and Biodiversity. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Metacommunity and Seed dispersal. His Species distribution research integrates issues from Host, Keystone species, Data set and Taiga.

As a member of one scientific family, Otso Ovaskainen mostly works in the field of Habitat, focusing on Abundance and, on occasion, Glanville fritillary, Metapopulation, Competition, Interspecific competition and Environmental niche modelling. His Biological dispersal research focuses on Extinction and how it connects with Stochastic modelling, Statistical physics, Population decline and Precautionary principle. He has included themes like Community and Community structure in his Species richness study.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Joint species distribution modelling with the r-package Hmsc. (52 citations)
  • Joint species distribution modelling with the r-package Hmsc. (52 citations)
  • Computationally efficient joint species distribution modeling of big spatial data (20 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Otso Ovaskainen mainly investigates Ecology, Biodiversity, Species distribution, Abundance and Habitat. Otso Ovaskainen combines subjects such as Sampling and Seedling with his study of Ecology. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Species richness, Statistical model and Environmental resource management.

His work carried out in the field of Habitat brings together such families of science as Centrality, Extinction, Occupancy, Metapopulation and Network theory. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Urbanization and Bioindicator. His study in Habitat fragmentation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Habitat destruction, Ecological network, Frugivore and Keystone species.
