Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Patrick Weigelt spends much of his time researching Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Macroecology and Invasive species. Community is closely connected to Environmental resource management in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Ecology. His study in the fields of Vascular plant under the domain of Species richness overlaps with other disciplines such as Ocean current.

His Macroecology research includes elements of Taxon and Taxonomic rank. The concepts of his Taxon study are interwoven with issues in Bioinformatics and Saturation. His study explores the link between Invasive species and topics such as Introduced species that cross with problems in Carex.

His most cited work include:

  • No saturation in the accumulation of alien species worldwide. (636 citations)
  • Global exchange and accumulation of non-native plants (429 citations)
  • Multidimensional biases, gaps and uncertainties in global plant occurrence information (191 citations)

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

Patrick Weigelt mainly investigates Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Taxon and Insular biogeography. Macroecology, Biogeography, Introduced species, Range and Invasive species are the core of his Ecology study. His work in Invasive species covers topics such as Flora which are related to areas like Ornamental plant.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Habitat, Evolutionary ecology, Land use, Endemism and Species diversity. His Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as IUCN Red List and Threatened species. His work in the fields of Taxon, such as Taxonomic rank, intersects with other areas such as Database.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (81.61%)
  • Species richness (36.78%)
  • Biodiversity (27.59%)

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

  • Ecology (81.61%)
  • Biodiversity (27.59%)
  • Taxon (21.84%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Biodiversity, Taxon, Species richness and Macroecology. His Insular biogeography, Biogeography, Habitat, Range and Flora study are his primary interests in Ecology. His work on Global biodiversity as part of his general Biodiversity study is frequently connected to Trait, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His Taxon research includes themes of Biome and Vascular plant. The Species richness study combines topics in areas such as Plant growth, Tree species and Endemism. His Macroecology research includes elements of Species-area curve and Vegetation.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • GIFT – A Global Inventory of Floras and Traits for macroecology and biogeography (29 citations)
  • Snapshot isolation and isolation history challenge the analogy between mountains and islands used to understand endemism (10 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Patrick Weigelt mostly deals with Ecology, Taxon, Range, Species richness and Biodiversity. He connects Ecology with Animal food in his research. His Taxon study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Alien species, Flora and Key.

His research in Range focuses on subjects like Macroecology, which are connected to Fern and Vegetation. The concepts of his Species richness study are interwoven with issues in Global biodiversity, Marine ecosystem, Land use and Environmental planning. His study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ecosystem model and Invasive species.
