Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Simon A. Levin mainly investigates Ecology, Environmental resource management, Biological dispersal, Ecology and Ecosystem. His work in Ecology is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Metapopulation. His studies in Metapopulation integrate themes in fields like Habitat fragmentation and Patch dynamics.

His study looks at the intersection of Environmental resource management and topics like Complex adaptive system with Self-organization. His Biological dispersal research includes themes of Spatial distribution, Species richness and Statistical physics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental ethics and Population biology.

His most cited work include:

  • The Problem of Pattern and Scale in Ecology: The Robert H. MacArthur Award Lecture (5286 citations)
  • Effective leadership and decision-making in animal groups on the move (1928 citations)
  • Economic growth, carrying capacity, and the environment. (1416 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Environmental resource management, Ecology, Ecosystem and Biological dispersal. Ecology is frequently linked to Metapopulation in his study. As part of his studies on Environmental resource management, Simon A. Levin often connects relevant subjects like Ecosystem services.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (31.87%)
  • Environmental resource management (10.27%)
  • Ecology (8.76%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (31.87%)
  • Incentive (3.47%)
  • Sustainability (5.74%)

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

Ecology, Incentive, Sustainability, Vaccination and Risk analysis are his primary areas of study. A large part of his Ecology studies is devoted to Ecology. The concepts of his Incentive study are interwoven with issues in Matching, Climate change mitigation, Climate change, International economics and Negotiation.

The various areas that he examines in his Sustainability study include Corporate governance and Biosphere. His research integrates issues of Immunity and Environmental health in his study of Vaccination. His biological study deals with issues like Social distance, which deal with fields such as Psychological intervention.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global increase and geographic convergence in antibiotic consumption between 2000 and 2015. (739 citations)
  • Cascading regime shifts within and across scales (90 citations)
  • Quantifying resilience of humans and other animals (71 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Simon A. Levin focuses on Sustainability, Sustainable development, Ecology, Pandemic and Per capita income. His Sustainability research incorporates elements of Natural resource, Resource, Food security and Livelihood. The Sustainable development study combines topics in areas such as Semantics and Order.

His studies deal with areas such as Source–sink dynamics and Set as well as Ecology. His research in Per capita income intersects with topics in Resource depletion, Poverty, Extreme poverty, Natural capital and Development economics. Ecology and Scale are two areas of study in which Simon A. Levin engages in interdisciplinary research.
