Overview

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, Biological dispersal, Vole and Population cycle. His studies in Ecosystem, Tundra, Predation, Arctic and Range are all subfields of Ecology research. His Arctic research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biodiversity and Climate change.

His Habitat research includes elements of Fragmentation, Foraging, Trade-off and Microtus. His research integrates issues of Deme, Spatial ecology and Sex ratio in his study of Biological dispersal. His Population cycle research integrates issues from Population density and Arvicolinae.

His most cited work include:

  • Ecological mechanisms and landscape ecology (892 citations)
  • Ecological Dynamics Across the Arctic Associated with Recent Climate Change (856 citations)
  • Spatial population dynamics: analyzing patterns and processes of population synchrony (596 citations)

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

Ecology, Arctic, Habitat, Tundra and Vole are his primary areas of study. Rolf A. Ims works mostly in the field of Ecology, limiting it down to concerns involving Biological dispersal and, occasionally, Population density. The concepts of his Arctic study are interwoven with issues in Biodiversity and Climate change.

His Range research extends to Habitat, which is thematically connected. The Tundra study which covers Abundance that intersects with Species richness. His work on Vole is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Microtus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (77.85%)
  • Arctic (21.82%)
  • Habitat (19.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Ecology (77.85%)
  • Arctic (21.82%)
  • Climate change (13.36%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Arctic, Climate change, Tundra and Ecosystem. His work is dedicated to discovering how Ecology, Biological dispersal are connected with Vole and other disciplines. In his work, Biodiversity is strongly intertwined with Circumpolar star, which is a subfield of Arctic.

His study in Tundra is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Population growth, Physical geography and Ecological indicator. His research investigates the connection between Ecosystem and topics such as Abundance that intersect with issues in Abiotic component and Species richness. His studies in Population cycle integrate themes in fields like Density dependence and Willow ptarmigan.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Predictions replaced by facts: a keystone species' behavioural responses to declining arctic sea-ice (42 citations)
  • An Arctic predator–prey system in flux: climate change impacts on coastal space use by polar bears and ringed seals (32 citations)
  • Circumpolar Arctic vegetation: a hierarchic review and roadmap toward an internationally consistent approach to survey, archive and classify tundra plot data (32 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

Rolf A. Ims mainly investigates Ecology, Arctic, Climate change, Tundra and Ecosystem. In most of his Ecology studies, his work intersects topics such as Vole. His research in Arctic intersects with topics in Circumpolar star and Sea ice.

His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mesopredator release hypothesis and Pusa hispida. His Tundra research incorporates themes from Shrub, Abundance, Grassland and Physical geography. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Population density, Riparian zone and Environmental resource management.
