Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Statistics

Pedro Cardoso mainly investigates Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Beta diversity and Taxon. When carried out as part of a general Ecology research project, his work on Endemism, Biogeography and Insular biogeography is frequently linked to work in Statistical analysis and Standardization, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Species richness study incorporates themes from Sampling, Spider, Fauna, Species diversity and Mediterranean climate.

His research integrates issues of Extinction event, Extinction and Extinction threshold in his study of Biodiversity. His Beta diversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nestedness, Jaccard index and Alpha diversity. His studies in Taxon integrate themes in fields like Citizen science and Biodiversity informatics.

His most cited work include:

  • The seven impediments in invertebrate conservation and how to overcome them (468 citations)
  • The seven impediments in invertebrate conservation and how to overcome them (468 citations)
  • Global Patterns of Guild Composition and Functional Diversity of Spiders (237 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Habitat and Spider. Endemism, Beta diversity, Introduced species, Species diversity and Archipelago are subfields of Ecology in which his conducts study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nestedness, Jaccard index and Vegetation in addition to Beta diversity.

Pedro Cardoso combines subjects such as Taxon, Abundance, Extinction and Threatened species with his study of Biodiversity. His work deals with themes such as IUCN Red List, Endangered species and Environmental resource management, which intersect with Threatened species. The concepts of his Species richness study are interwoven with issues in Global biodiversity, Biological dispersal and Mediterranean climate.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (86.58%)
  • Biodiversity (51.44%)
  • Species richness (38.98%)

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

  • Biodiversity (51.44%)
  • Ecology (86.58%)
  • Spider (18.53%)

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

Biodiversity, Ecology, Spider, Ecology and Species richness are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including IUCN Red List, Invertebrate, Habitat and Environmental planning. His research investigates the connection between Ecology and topics such as Biological dispersal that intersect with issues in Beta diversity, Biodiversity assessment and Fragmentation.

His study looks at the relationship between Spider and topics such as Archipelago, which overlap with Morpho, Native forest, Dysdera and Dysderidae. His Ecology study which covers Species evenness that intersects with Alpha diversity. His study explores the link between Species richness and topics such as Global biodiversity that cross with problems in Conservation status and Environmental resource management.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Scientists' warning to humanity on insect extinctions (94 citations)
  • International scientists formulate a roadmap for insect conservation and recovery (69 citations)
  • Solutions for humanity on how to conserve insects (49 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Pedro Cardoso mainly focuses on IUCN Red List, Biodiversity, Ecology, Environmental planning and Species richness. His research on IUCN Red List also deals with topics like

  • Environmental resource management most often made with reference to Conservation status,
  • Natura 2000 which is related to area like DRYAD, Database, Investment and Habitats Directive,
  • Extinction and related CITES and Wildlife trade. In his study, Range is strongly linked to Invertebrate, which falls under the umbrella field of Biodiversity.

His Range research is included under the broader classification of Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Kernel density estimation, Functional ecology, Divergence and Alpha diversity as well as Ecology. His research in Species richness intersects with topics in Spider, Ecological niche and Divergence.
