What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Stephen P. Hubbell focuses on Ecology, Biological dispersal, Panama, Species richness and Common species. His study connects Janzen–Connell hypothesis and Ecology. His Biological dispersal research focuses on subjects like Seedling, which are linked to Pioneer species and Herbivore.

His work deals with themes such as Tropical forest, Rainforest, Population density and Species diversity, which intersect with Panama. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Relative species abundance under Common species, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests. His research in Habitat intersects with topics in Ecosystem and Extinction.

His most cited work include:

  • The Unified Neutral Theory of Biodiversity and Biogeography (4778 citations)
  • Light-Gap Disturbances, Recruitment Limitation, and Tree Diversity in a Neotropical Forest (1220 citations)
  • Beta-Diversity in Tropical Forest Trees (1061 citations)

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

Stephen P. Hubbell spends much of his time researching Ecology, Panama, Biodiversity, Abundance and Species richness. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biological dispersal and Seedling. His work in Biological dispersal tackles topics such as Habitat which are related to areas like Niche and Community structure.

The various areas that Stephen P. Hubbell examines in his Panama study include Range, Canopy, Tropical forest, Density dependence and Liana. His Biodiversity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Community, Neutral theory of molecular evolution and Extinction. The concepts of his Species diversity study are interwoven with issues in Niche differentiation and Rare species.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (126.61%)
  • Panama (30.25%)
  • Biodiversity (22.41%)

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

  • Ecology (126.61%)
  • Ecosystem (11.76%)
  • Biomass (13.73%)

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

Ecology, Ecosystem, Biomass, Tropical forest and Atmospheric sciences are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Biological dispersal and Seedling as well as Ecology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Janzen–Connell hypothesis, Forest dynamics and Liana.

His work in the fields of Ecosystem, such as Carbon cycle, intersects with other areas such as Darwin. His Biomass research integrates issues from Rainforest, Forestry, Physical geography and Scale. Stephen P. Hubbell has researched Tropical forest in several fields, including Basal area, Ecological succession, Tree species and Environmental resource management.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global importance of large‐diameter trees (138 citations)
  • BioTIME: A database of biodiversity time series for the Anthropocene (113 citations)
  • Biodiversity recovery of Neotropical secondary forests (100 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Stephen P. Hubbell mostly deals with Ecology, Tropical forest, Biomass, Basal area and Biodiversity. In general Ecology, his work in Ecosystem is often linked to Early life linking many areas of study. His studies in Tropical forest integrate themes in fields like Infestation, Generalist and specialist species, Tree species and Liana.

His studies deal with areas such as Diameter at breast height, Tropics and Woody plant as well as Biomass. Within one scientific family, Stephen P. Hubbell focuses on topics pertaining to Rainforest under Basal area, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Environmental resource management and Ecological succession. Stephen P. Hubbell has included themes like Abundance, Relative species abundance, Species richness and Agriculture in his Biodiversity study.
