Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

Scott E. Nielsen mostly deals with Ecology, Habitat, Grizzly Bears, Ursus and Population density. His work on Ecology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Selection. He has included themes like Sample, Pooling, Categorical variable and Selection bias in his Selection study.

His work deals with themes such as Carrying capacity, National park and Occupancy, which intersect with Habitat. Scott E. Nielsen interconnects Environmental protection, Ungulate, Silviculture, Forestry and Threatened species in the investigation of issues within Grizzly Bears. The study incorporates disciplines such as Moss, Crepuscular, Phenology and Wildlife in addition to Ursus.

His most cited work include:

  • Evaluating resource selection functions (1570 citations)
  • Resource Selection Functions Based on Use-Availability Data: Theoretical Motivation and Evaluation Methods (552 citations)
  • Application of random effects to the study of resource selection by animals (540 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Habitat, Grizzly Bears, Taiga and Ursus. His study in Species richness, Abundance, Biodiversity, Vegetation and Ecosystem is carried out as part of his Ecology studies. In his research on the topic of Habitat, Biological dispersal is strongly related with Range.

Scott E. Nielsen has researched Grizzly Bears in several fields, including Resource, Home range and Threatened species. His Taiga research includes themes of Peat, Boreal and Woodland caribou. His study in Ursus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Population density and Foraging.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (67.66%)
  • Habitat (44.28%)
  • Grizzly Bears (21.39%)

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

  • Ecology (67.66%)
  • Taiga (18.41%)
  • Boreal (11.94%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Taiga, Boreal, Habitat and Vegetation. His study in Species richness, Bison bison, Disturbance, Abundance and Ecosystem falls within the category of Ecology. The Taiga study combines topics in areas such as Biodiversity and Woodland caribou, Rangifer tarandus caribou.

His Habitat research incorporates themes from Land cover and Grizzly Bears. The concepts of his Grizzly Bears study are interwoven with issues in Carrying capacity and Endangered species. His research integrates issues of Soil test and Physical geography in his study of Vegetation.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate‐change refugia in boreal North America: what, where, and for how long? (21 citations)
  • The ecology of human–carnivore coexistence (20 citations)
  • Toward a climate‐informed North American protected areas network: Incorporating climate‐change refugia and corridors in conservation planning (11 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Ecosystem, Boreal, Peat and Vegetation. His research in the fields of Habitat and Local adaptation overlaps with other disciplines such as Voltinism and Genetic divergence. His research integrates issues of Wilderness area, Carnivore, Nocturnality and Human settlement in his study of Ecosystem.

His Boreal research includes themes of Soil water, Soil test, Climate change, Species richness and Taiga. His Peat study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Tree, Agroforestry, Regeneration and Bulk density. His work deals with themes such as Land cover and Physical geography, which intersect with Vegetation.
