Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Zoology

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Zoology, Species richness, Biodiversity and Biogeography. His study connects Extinction and Ecology. His Zoology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Basal metabolic rate, Avian malaria, Plasmodium and Reproduction.

His Species richness study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Diversity and Ecosystem diversity. His Biodiversity research incorporates themes from Introduced species, Ecology, Community and Temporal scales. His Biogeography study combines topics in areas such as Taxon, Local community and Biological dispersal.

His most cited work include:

  • Community Diversity: Relative Roles of Local and Regional Processes (1897 citations)
  • An analysis of nesting mortality in birds (1292 citations)
  • Species diversity in ecological communities: historical and geographical perspectives. (1164 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Zoology, Species richness, Evolutionary biology and Passerine. His research on Ecology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Extinction. His work in Zoology addresses subjects such as Plasmodium, which are connected to disciplines such as Host.

His Species richness research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Abundance, Temperate climate, Global biodiversity, Diversity and Biological dispersal. His Clade research extends to the thematically linked field of Evolutionary biology. His Passerine study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Foraging.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (59.91%)
  • Zoology (29.18%)
  • Species richness (15.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Ecology (59.91%)
  • Zoology (29.18%)
  • Species richness (15.14%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Zoology, Species richness, Plasmodium and Haemoproteus. His Ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biological dispersal and Clade. His research integrates issues of Incubation period, Incubation, Lineage and Haemosporida in his study of Zoology.

His Species richness research includes elements of Niche, Abundance, Extinction, Global biodiversity and Species diversity. His study explores the link between Extinction and topics such as Archipelago that cross with problems in Biogeography. His Plasmodium study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Habitat, Host, Molecular evolution and Molecular clock.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Early bursts of body size and shape evolution are rare in comparative data. (568 citations)
  • Diversity, Loss, and Gain of Malaria Parasites in a Globally Invasive Bird (227 citations)
  • Islands as model systems in ecology and evolution: prospects fifty years after MacArthur‐Wilson (221 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Zoology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Zoology, Species richness, Biodiversity and Passerine. His research on Ecology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Biological dispersal. His Zoology research includes elements of Cytochrome b, Haemosporida, Wildlife, Haemoproteus and Longevity.

His Species richness research incorporates elements of Abundance, Clade, Species distribution and Coexistence theory. The concepts of his Biodiversity study are interwoven with issues in Environmental ethics and Patterns in nature. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Seasonal breeder, Foraging, Fungal colonization and Reproduction.
