Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Introduced species, Invasive species, Biodiversity and Species richness. His work deals with themes such as Biological dispersal and Propagule pressure, which intersect with Ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Plant ecology, Abundance, Flora and Ecosystem as well as Introduced species.

His Invasive species research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Taxonomic rank, Riparian zone and Macroecology, Biogeography. His research in Biodiversity tackles topics such as Environmental resource management which are related to areas like Ecology. His Species richness study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Plant community, Weed and Species diversity.

His most cited work include:

  • Naturalization and invasion of alien plants: concepts and definitions (2623 citations)
  • Ecological impacts of invasive alien plants: a meta-analysis of their effects on species, communities and ecosystems (1665 citations)
  • Ecological impacts of invasive alien plants: a meta-analysis of their effects on species, communities and ecosystems (1665 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Invasive species, Introduced species, Habitat and Species richness. Petr Pyšek combines topics linked to Biological dispersal with his work on Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Plant ecology, Propagule pressure and Ecosystem in addition to Invasive species.

In the subject of general Introduced species, his work in Native plant is often linked to Archaeophyte, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Habitat research incorporates themes from Plant community, Ecological succession and Woodland. His Biodiversity research integrates issues from Environmental resource management and Ecosystem services.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (142.59%)
  • Invasive species (79.38%)
  • Introduced species (76.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (142.59%)
  • Invasive species (79.38%)
  • Biodiversity (34.07%)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Invasive species, Biodiversity, Introduced species and Alien species. His work is connected to Habitat, Species richness, Range, Ecology and Taxon, as a part of Ecology. His Habitat study incorporates themes from Plant community, Vegetation and Niche.

The concepts of his Invasive species study are interwoven with issues in Temperate climate, Native plant, Propagule pressure, Ecosystem and Species diversity. His Biodiversity research includes elements of Agroforestry and Environmental planning. Petr Pyšek has researched Introduced species in several fields, including Biological dispersal and Environmental resource management.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Global rise in emerging alien species results from increased accessibility of new source pools. (165 citations)
  • Global rise in emerging alien species results from increased accessibility of new source pools. (165 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Habitat

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Introduced species, Invasive species, Biodiversity and Species richness. His Ecology and Habitat, Native plant, Ecosystem, Alien species and Ecology investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities. His work carried out in the field of Introduced species brings together such families of science as Functional ecology, Conceptual framework and Environmental resource management.

His Invasive species study frequently links to related topics such as Propagule pressure. His biological study deals with issues like Taxonomic rank, which deal with fields such as Environmental planning. His work focuses on many connections between Species richness and other disciplines, such as Temperate climate, that overlap with his field of interest in Population density, Elodea canadensis, Far East, Fauna and Baseline.
