Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Statistics

Piero Visconti focuses on Biodiversity, Global biodiversity, Environmental planning, Environmental resource management and Threatened species. The various areas that he examines in his Biodiversity study include Protected area and Environmental protection. His studies examine the connections between Global biodiversity and genetics, as well as such issues in Climate change, with regards to Aquatic ecosystem and Terrestrial ecosystem.

Piero Visconti combines subjects such as Natural resource, Environmental impact assessment and Resource management with his study of Environmental planning. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental studies, Effects of global warming and Temporal scales. His research in Convention on Biological Diversity focuses on subjects like Living Planet Index, which are connected to Land use, land-use change and forestry and Red List Index.

His most cited work include:

  • A mid-term analysis of progress toward international biodiversity targets (701 citations)
  • Assessing species' vulnerability to climate change (486 citations)
  • Assessing species' vulnerability to climate change (486 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Biodiversity, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Convention on Biological Diversity and Climate change. His study of Global biodiversity is a part of Biodiversity. His Environmental resource management research includes themes of Habitat fragmentation, Biodiversity hotspot, Spatial analysis and Vulnerability assessment.

His Convention on Biological Diversity research includes elements of Protected area, Sustainability and Extinction. Piero Visconti interconnects Environmental studies and Land use, land-use change and forestry in the investigation of issues within Climate change. Piero Visconti focuses mostly in the field of Threatened species, narrowing it down to matters related to IUCN Red List and, in some cases, Enforcement, Land cover, Biodiversity conservation and Red List Index.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biodiversity (102.26%)
  • Environmental resource management (54.89%)
  • Ecology (38.35%)

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

  • Biodiversity (102.26%)
  • Convention on Biological Diversity (38.35%)
  • Natural resource economics (27.82%)

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

Piero Visconti mostly deals with Biodiversity, Convention on Biological Diversity, Natural resource economics, Environmental planning and Ecosystem services. Piero Visconti has included themes like Agroforestry, Extinction, Agriculture, Climate change and Sustainability in his Biodiversity study. His Sustainability study combines topics in areas such as Habitat and Food systems.

His research combines Threatened species and Convention on Biological Diversity. His Environmental planning study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Global biodiversity and Biome. His Global biodiversity research integrates issues from Wilderness area, Wilderness and Indigenous.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global priority areas for ecosystem restoration (47 citations)
  • Bending the curve of terrestrial biodiversity needs an integrated strategy (36 citations)
  • Bending the curve of terrestrial biodiversity needs an integrated strategy (36 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, Convention on Biological Diversity, Environmental planning and Agriculture. His research in Biodiversity is mostly concerned with Global biodiversity. His studies deal with areas such as Restoration ecology and Spatial variability as well as Environmental planning.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Fertilizer, Crop yield, Vegetation and Greenhouse gas in addition to Agriculture. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Wilderness area, Wilderness and Indigenous. His study in Agroforestry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Climate change, Deforestation and Amazon rainforest.
