What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Steward T. A. Pickett focuses on Ecology, Ecology, Urban ecology, Ecological systems theory and Environmental resource management. His research on Ecology often connects related areas such as Disturbance. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biodiversity and Environmental impact assessment.

His research investigates the link between Urban ecology and topics such as Human ecosystem that cross with problems in Urban design and Urbanization. His Ecological systems theory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Urban density, Common spatial pattern, Spatial ecology and Spatial contextual awareness. The various areas that he examines in his Environmental resource management study include Causality, Conceptual framework, Urban ecosystem and Mechanism.

His most cited work include:

  • The Ecology of Natural Disturbance and Patch Dynamics. (3567 citations)
  • The Ecology of Natural Disturbance and Patch Dynamics (1597 citations)
  • Plant litter : its dynamics and effects on plant community structure (1215 citations)

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

Steward T. A. Pickett mostly deals with Ecology, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Urban ecology and Urban ecosystem. His work in Ecological succession, Ecological systems theory, Ecosystem, Old field and Plant community is related to Ecology. His Ecosystem research focuses on Biodiversity and how it relates to Plant ecology.

In most of his Ecology studies, his work intersects topics such as Patch dynamics. As a part of the same scientific family, Steward T. A. Pickett mostly works in the field of Environmental resource management, focusing on Urbanization and, on occasion, Land use. His Urban ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Urban design, Human ecosystem, Spatial heterogeneity and Environmental planning.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (51.18%)
  • Ecology (23.23%)
  • Environmental resource management (21.65%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecology (51.18%)
  • Ecology (23.23%)
  • Urbanization (11.42%)

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

Steward T. A. Pickett spends much of his time researching Ecology, Ecology, Urbanization, Environmental resource management and Urban ecology. Steward T. A. Pickett integrates Ecology and Term in his research. His study looks at the intersection of Ecology and topics like Environmental planning with Ecological science, Common spatial pattern and Urban expansion.

His Urbanization research includes themes of Air pollution, Face and Population exposure. His Environmental resource management study incorporates themes from Land cover, Spatial heterogeneity, Sustainability and Urban ecosystem. The study incorporates disciplines such as Urban theory, Landscape ecology, Conceptual framework and Ecosystem services in addition to Urban ecology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Shifting concepts of urban spatial heterogeneity and their implications for sustainability (75 citations)
  • Understanding an urbanizing planet: Strategic directions for remote sensing (69 citations)
  • Dynamic heterogeneity: a framework to promote ecological integration and hypothesis generation in urban systems (64 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His main research concerns Environmental resource management, Urbanization, Sustainability, Ecosystem services and Urban ecosystem. His Environmental resource management study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Spatial heterogeneity, Geospatial analysis, Urban ecology and Land use. Urban ecology is a subfield of Ecology that Steward T. A. Pickett tackles.

His research integrates issues of Air pollution, Particulates, Population size and Megacity in his study of Urbanization. His Ecosystem services research integrates issues from Common spatial pattern, Urban expansion and Environmental planning. His work deals with themes such as Urban design and Ecology, which intersect with Urban ecosystem.
