What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Teja Tscharntke mainly focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Habitat and Pollination. He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Ecology and Context through his works. He combines subjects such as Agroforestry, Agriculture and Ecosystem, Ecosystem services with his study of Biodiversity.

His Species richness research incorporates themes from Landscape ecology, Apoidea, Grassland and Apidae. His work in Habitat covers topics such as Herbivore which are related to areas like Trophic level and Parasitism. Particularly relevant to Pollinator is his body of work in Pollination.

His most cited work include:

  • Importance of pollinators in changing landscapes for world crops (3439 citations)
  • Landscape perspectives on agricultural intensification and biodiversity – ecosystem service management (2905 citations)
  • Wild Pollinators Enhance Fruit Set of Crops Regardless of Honey Bee Abundance (1351 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Agroforestry and Habitat. His work is connected to Abundance, Species diversity, Pollinator, Herbivore and Pollination, as a part of Ecology. His study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Land use, Ecosystem, Ecosystem services and Agriculture, Organic farming.

His biological study deals with issues like Predation, which deal with fields such as Biological pest control. The Agroforestry study combines topics in areas such as Rainforest, Agroecosystem, Canopy and Tropics. Teja Tscharntke has researched Habitat in several fields, including Biological dispersal and Grassland.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (64.42%)
  • Biodiversity (41.76%)
  • Species richness (34.83%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2022)?

  • Ecology (64.42%)
  • Biodiversity (41.76%)
  • Ecosystem services (18.35%)

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

Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, Agroforestry and Species richness are his primary areas of study. His Ecology research focuses on Habitat, Pollinator, Grassland, Pollination and Habitat fragmentation. His Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Land use, Environmental resource management, Ecosystem, Organic farming and Spatial ecology.

His research investigates the connection between Ecosystem services and topics such as Sustainable agriculture that intersect with problems in Agroecology. As a member of one scientific family, Teja Tscharntke mostly works in the field of Agroforestry, focusing on Agriculture and, on occasion, Sustainability and Global biodiversity. His studies deal with areas such as Range, Abundance, Herbivore and Arable land as well as Species richness.

Between 2017 and 2022, his most popular works were:

  • Trade-offs between multifunctionality and profit in tropical smallholder landscapes (585 citations)
  • Crop pests and predators exhibit inconsistent responses to surrounding landscape composition. (223 citations)
  • A global synthesis reveals biodiversity-mediated benefits for crop production (193 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Agriculture

Teja Tscharntke spends much of his time researching Biodiversity, Ecosystem services, Ecology, Agriculture and Ecosystem. His Biodiversity research includes themes of Monoculture, Biological dispersal, Land use and Pollinator. His study in Habitat, Landscape ecology, Pollination, Pest control and Abundance is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology.

His Habitat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Fragmentation and Species richness. His Agriculture study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Agroforestry, Global biodiversity and Crop. His work deals with themes such as Grassland and Species diversity, which intersect with Ecosystem.
