Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Species richness, Macroecology, Biodiversity and Biological dispersal. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Statistical hypothesis testing and Spatial analysis. His Species richness study combines topics in areas such as Species distribution, Tropics, Species diversity and Extinction.

His study looks at the intersection of Macroecology and topics like Autocorrelation with Range and Data mining. His Data mining research integrates issues from Spatial ecology, Regression analysis, Degrees of freedom and Autoregressive model. His study in Biodiversity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Range and Montane ecology.

His most cited work include:

  • SAM: a comprehensive application for Spatial Analysis in Macroecology (982 citations)
  • Towards an integrated computational tool for spatial analysis in macroecology and biogeography (568 citations)
  • Partitioning and mapping uncertainties in ensembles of forecasts of species turnover under climate change (418 citations)

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

Thiago F. Rangel mainly focuses on Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Climate change and Spatial ecology. His works in Macroecology, Niche, Ecological niche, Species distribution and Range are all subjects of inquiry into Ecology. The Body size and species richness research Thiago F. Rangel does as part of his general Species richness study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as South american, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His Biodiversity research integrates issues from Extinction, Habitat, Biological dispersal and Biome. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Environmental niche modelling, Physical geography and Amazon rainforest. The various areas that Thiago F. Rangel examines in his Spatial ecology study include Null model and Statistics, Spatial variability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (77.86%)
  • Species richness (32.06%)
  • Biodiversity (25.19%)

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

  • Ecology (77.86%)
  • Climate change (19.85%)
  • Species richness (32.06%)

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

Ecology, Climate change, Species richness, Niche and Biodiversity are his primary areas of study. As part of his studies on Ecology, Thiago F. Rangel frequently links adjacent subjects like Biological dispersal. His studies in Biological dispersal integrate themes in fields like Carrying capacity, Genetic algorithm and Macroecology.

His research integrates issues of Adaptation, Range and Species distribution in his study of Climate change. His Species richness research incorporates elements of Phylogenetic diversity, Community structure and Completeness. His Niche research includes elements of Ecology, Human evolution, Competition and Extinction.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Latitudinal Diversity Gradient: Novel Understanding through Mechanistic Eco-evolutionary Models (48 citations)
  • A macroecological approach to evolutionary rescue and adaptation to climate change (12 citations)
  • A parsimonious view of the parsimony principle in ecology and evolution (10 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Species richness, Species distribution, Climate change and Macroecology. Canopy, Riparian zone, Seasonality, Species diversity and Understory are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. Thiago F. Rangel combines subjects such as Neutrality, Phylogenetic diversity, Mammal and Neutral theory of molecular evolution with his study of Species richness.

His Species distribution research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecological niche and Effects of global warming. Thiago F. Rangel has included themes like Range, Environmental change, Adaptation, Spatial ecology and Biological dispersal in his Ecological niche study. Thiago F. Rangel works mostly in the field of Macroecology, limiting it down to topics relating to Evolutionary biology and, in certain cases, Statistical inference.
