What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Habitat, Predation, Ecology and Biodiversity. His work investigates the relationship between Ecology and topics such as Biological dispersal that intersect with problems in Community. His Habitat research integrates issues from Species richness and Spatial heterogeneity.

His research integrates issues of Healthy individuals, Genetic correlation and Population size in his study of Predation. The Evolutionary ecology research Robert D. Holt does as part of his general Ecology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Scale, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His studies deal with areas such as Communicable disease transmission, Canopy, Disease and Environmental resource management as well as Biodiversity.

His most cited work include:

  • The metacommunity concept: a framework for multi-scale community ecology (3228 citations)
  • Trophic Downgrading of Planet Earth (2277 citations)
  • Predation, apparent competition and the structure of prey communities. (1886 citations)

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

Robert D. Holt focuses on Ecology, Ecology, Habitat, Predation and Biological dispersal. His work is connected to Ecosystem, Competition, Biodiversity, Niche and Range, as a part of Ecology. Robert D. Holt focuses mostly in the field of Ecosystem, narrowing it down to matters related to Trophic level and, in some cases, Food chain and Community.

In Niche, Robert D. Holt works on issues like Evolutionary biology, which are connected to Adaptation, Extinction and Environmental change. His Habitat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Abundance and Species richness. His Habitat fragmentation research includes themes of Habitat destruction and Fragmentation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (77.39%)
  • Ecology (16.52%)
  • Habitat (15.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Ecology (77.39%)
  • Ecology (16.52%)
  • Biodiversity (8.70%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Ecology, Biodiversity, Biological dispersal and Evolutionary biology. Ecology is represented through his Habitat, Fragmentation, Competition, Ecosystem and Niche research. He has included themes like Trophic level, Developmental biology, Pathogen and Food chain in his Ecology study.

His studies in Biodiversity integrate themes in fields like Climate change, Conservation biology and Environmental resource management. His Biological dispersal research focuses on Species distribution and how it relates to Abundance and Abiotic component. His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Extinction and Phenotypic plasticity.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Habitat fragmentation and its lasting impact on Earth’s ecosystems (1359 citations)
  • Improving the forecast for biodiversity under climate change (456 citations)
  • Habitat fragmentation and biodiversity conservation: key findings and future challenges (171 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Biodiversity, Fragmentation, Biological dispersal and Habitat fragmentation. His study in Ecosystem, Range, Species richness, Competition and Niche is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology. His Biodiversity research incorporates themes from Infectious disease, Resource, Conservation biology and Environmental resource management.

His Fragmentation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ecosystem services, Biomass, Intact forest landscape, Habitat conservation and Landscape connectivity. The concepts of his Biological dispersal study are interwoven with issues in Niche differentiation, Global warming, Climate change and Adaptation, Local adaptation. His Habitat fragmentation research incorporates elements of Nestedness, Plant community, Beta diversity and Landscape ecology.
