Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • World War II
  • Law

Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, Natural resource economics and Environmental resource management are his primary areas of study. Paul R. Ehrlich frequently studies issues relating to Extinction and Ecology. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Agriculture, Conservation biology, Agroforestry and Land use.

Paul R. Ehrlich interconnects Systems ecology, Intervention, Species diversity and Ecosystem diversity in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem services. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Goods and services, Opportunity cost and Environmental protection. His Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, Stewardship and Yield.

His most cited work include:

  • BUTTERFLIES AND PLANTS: A STUDY IN COEVOLUTION (3188 citations)
  • Impact of Population Growth (1743 citations)
  • The Population Bomb (1545 citations)

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

Paul R. Ehrlich spends much of his time researching Ecology, Biodiversity, Butterfly, Population growth and Environmental ethics. His research ties Extinction and Ecology together. His studies in Biodiversity integrate themes in fields like Agroforestry, Ecosystem services, Agriculture, Environmental resource management and Natural resource economics.

His Butterfly study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Larva. His research in Population growth intersects with topics in Economic growth, Environmental protection, Development economics, Population size and Environmental degradation. The concepts of his Euphydryas study are interwoven with issues in Zoology and Population biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (34.56%)
  • Biodiversity (13.59%)
  • Butterfly (12.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Ecology (34.56%)
  • Biodiversity (13.59%)
  • Environmental resource management (8.74%)

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

Paul R. Ehrlich focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Environmental resource management, Environmental ethics and Development economics. Paul R. Ehrlich combines topics linked to Extinction with his work on Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Agroforestry, Species richness and Ecosystem, Ecosystem services as well as Biodiversity.

His Environmental resource management research integrates issues from Global warming and Climate change. His Environmental ethics study deals with Sustainability intersecting with Civil society. His research on Development economics also deals with topics like

  • Population growth and related Economic growth,
  • Sustainable development which is related to area like Natural capital.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Accelerated Modern Human-Induced Species Losses: Entering the Sixth Mass Extinction (1366 citations)
  • Biological annihilation via the ongoing sixth mass extinction signaled by vertebrate population losses and declines (818 citations)
  • Social-ecological systems as complex adaptive systems : modeling and policy implications (307 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • World War II
  • Law

Paul R. Ehrlich spends much of his time researching Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Ecosystem services and Habitat. Many of his studies on Ecology apply to Extinction as well. His Extinction research focuses on subjects like Population size, which are linked to Population growth.

His Biodiversity study incorporates themes from Agroforestry, Species richness and Endangered species. His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Sampling, Tropical forest, Fauna and Land use. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sustenance and Livelihood in addition to Ecosystem services.
