Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Biodiversity

Ecology, Climate change, Biodiversity, Range and Species richness are his primary areas of study. In his works, he conducts interdisciplinary research on Ecology and Context. His Environmental change study in the realm of Climate change interacts with subjects such as Time horizon.

Steven L. Chown has researched Biodiversity in several fields, including Protected area, Environmental resource management, Biome and Peninsula. The various areas that he examines in his Range study include Taxonomic rank, Taxon, Ecology and Arid. His Species richness research includes elements of Biodiversity hotspot, Extinction, Vegetation, Species diversity and Spatial ecology.

His most cited work include:

  • Thermal tolerance, climatic variability and latitude. (770 citations)
  • Insect physiological ecology : mechanisms and patterns (562 citations)
  • Biological invasions in the Antarctic: extent, impacts and implications. (510 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Climate change and Introduced species. His study in Ecology focuses on Habitat, Abundance, Range, Invasive species and Ecosystem. Biodiversity is frequently linked to Environmental resource management in his study.

His Species richness research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Vegetation and Species diversity. His primary area of study in Climate change is in the field of Environmental change. He has included themes like Indigenous and Propagule pressure in his Introduced species study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (76.00%)
  • Biodiversity (17.52%)
  • Species richness (15.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (76.00%)
  • Biodiversity (17.52%)
  • Climate change (13.52%)

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

Steven L. Chown spends much of his time researching Ecology, Biodiversity, Climate change, Ecosystem and Species richness. His Ecology study frequently links to other fields, such as Biological dispersal. In his study, Biodiversity conservation is strongly linked to Environmental resource management, which falls under the umbrella field of Biodiversity.

His Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Foraging, Temperate climate and Greenhouse gas. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Habitat, Biomass and Marine conservation, Pelagic zone, Fishery. He focuses mostly in the field of Species richness, narrowing it down to matters related to Resistance and, in some cases, Fire regime, Protea, Vegetation, Desiccation and Phenotypic plasticity.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Handbook of protocols for standardized measurement of terrestrial invertebrate functional traits (165 citations)
  • Choosing the future of Antarctica. (94 citations)
  • Rising temperatures and changing rainfall patterns in South Africa's national parks (57 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Biodiversity

Steven L. Chown mainly investigates Ecology, Climate change, Biodiversity, Invasive species and Ecosystem. His study in Species richness, Taxon, Resistance, Species diversity and Biogeography falls within the category of Ecology. The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Exploitation of natural resources and Phenotypic plasticity.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Conservation Plan, Marine ecosystem and Propagule pressure in addition to Biodiversity. His research integrates issues of Species distribution and Introduced species in his study of Invasive species. His studies in Ecosystem integrate themes in fields like Continental shelf, Fishery, Fishing, Predation and Ecological significance.
