Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Statistics

His primary areas of investigation include Biodiversity, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Land use and Common spatial pattern. His Biodiversity research incorporates elements of Environmental data, Biological dispersal, Climate change and Sustainable development. His works in Species richness, Ecology, Spatial ecology, Environmental niche modelling and Species distribution are all subjects of inquiry into Ecology.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Environmental niche modelling, Realized niche width, Sampling bias and Regression is strongly linked to Additive model. In Species distribution, Simon Ferrier works on issues like Species diversity, which are connected to Source–sink dynamics. His Environmental resource management course of study focuses on Spatial analysis and Protected area and Relation.

His most cited work include:

  • Novel methods improve prediction of species' distributions from occurrence data (5714 citations)
  • Sample selection bias and presence-only distribution models: implications for background and pseudo-absence data (1523 citations)
  • Evaluating the predictive performance of habitat models developed using logistic regression (1428 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Biodiversity, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Climate change and Ecosystem. Simon Ferrier combines subjects such as Environmental planning, Land use and Ecosystem services with his study of Biodiversity. As part of the same scientific family, Simon Ferrier usually focuses on Ecology, concentrating on Biological dispersal and intersecting with Spatial ecology and Beta diversity.

His study in Environmental resource management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Convention on Biological Diversity, Ecological systems theory, Habitat, Ecology and Environmental data. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biodiversity conservation, Biome and Taxonomic rank. Simon Ferrier has researched Species distribution in several fields, including Statistics and Data mining.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biodiversity (61.45%)
  • Ecology (43.02%)
  • Environmental resource management (41.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Biodiversity (61.45%)
  • Environmental resource management (41.90%)
  • Ecosystem services (11.73%)

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

Simon Ferrier mostly deals with Biodiversity, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem services, Ecosystem and Climate change. His Biodiversity study introduces a deeper knowledge of Ecology. The Environmental resource management study combines topics in areas such as Indigenous, Conceptual framework and Species distribution.

His Ecosystem services research includes elements of Biological organisation, Natural resource economics, Sustainability and Sustainable development. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Convention on Biological Diversity and Accounting. His Climate change study incorporates themes from Spatial planning and Environmental protection.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Opinion: Sustainable development must account for pandemic risk. (82 citations)
  • Essential biodiversity variables for mapping and monitoring species populations (78 citations)
  • Wilderness areas halve the extinction risk of terrestrial biodiversity (53 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, Global biodiversity, Climate change and Ecosystem. His work deals with themes such as Agroforestry, Carbon storage, Habitat, Environmental resource management and Co benefits, which intersect with Biodiversity. Habitat is a primary field of his research addressed under Ecology.

His research investigates the link between Ecosystem services and topics such as Natural resource economics that cross with problems in Global change, Representative Concentration Pathways, Land use and Land use, land-use change and forestry. Simon Ferrier combines subjects such as Action, Spatial planning and Environmental protection with his study of Climate change. His research integrates issues of Range, Disparate system, Abundance, Data collection and Species distribution in his study of Ecosystem.
