Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Thomas M. Brooks mainly focuses on Biodiversity, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Threatened species and Endangered species. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Protected area, IUCN Red List and Ecosystem services. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Ecology, focusing on Extinction and, on occasion, Habitat, Near-threatened species, Taxon and Mainland.

The concepts of his Environmental resource management study are interwoven with issues in Global biodiversity, Conservation planning, Gap analysis and Measurement of biodiversity. His Threatened species study incorporates themes from Population density, Range and Biodiversity hotspot. His Endangered species study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Conservation status and Endemism.

His most cited work include:

  • The future of biodiversity. (1755 citations)
  • Hotspots Revisited: Earth's Biologically Richest and Most Endangered Terrestrial Ecoregions (1708 citations)
  • Global biodiversity conservation priorities. (1486 citations)

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

His main research concerns Biodiversity, Ecology, Environmental resource management, Threatened species and IUCN Red List. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ecosystem services, Extinction and Environmental planning. His Environmental resource management research incorporates elements of Biodiversity conservation, Measurement of biodiversity, Natural resource economics and Ecosystem.

His Biodiversity conservation research integrates issues from Conservation planning and Biodiversity hotspot. Thomas M. Brooks has included themes like Agroforestry and Endangered species in his Threatened species study. His studies examine the connections between IUCN Red List and genetics, as well as such issues in Conservation-dependent species, with regards to Least concern.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biodiversity (129.38%)
  • Ecology (66.88%)
  • Environmental resource management (73.75%)

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

  • Biodiversity (129.38%)
  • Convention on Biological Diversity (34.37%)
  • Extinction (39.37%)

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

Thomas M. Brooks focuses on Biodiversity, Convention on Biological Diversity, Extinction, Environmental planning and Threatened species. Thomas M. Brooks is involved in the study of Biodiversity that focuses on Global biodiversity in particular. His Extinction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecology and Habitat.

The Mammal and Conservation planning research Thomas M. Brooks does as part of his general Ecology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Action, Vertebrate and Land area, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. As part of one scientific family, Thomas M. Brooks deals mainly with the area of Threatened species, narrowing it down to issues related to the IUCN Red List, and often Range, Near-threatened species, Conservation biology and Economic growth. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecosystem, Sustainable management and Land management, Sustainable land management.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Protected area targets post-2020. (108 citations)
  • Global priority areas for ecosystem restoration (47 citations)
  • Global priority areas for ecosystem restoration (47 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Biodiversity
  • Habitat

Thomas M. Brooks mainly investigates Biodiversity, Environmental planning, Extinction, IUCN Red List and Global biodiversity. Biodiversity and Multi-objective optimization are two areas of study in which Thomas M. Brooks engages in interdisciplinary research. His research in Environmental planning intersects with topics in Restoration ecology and Spatial variability.

His Extinction research includes themes of Agroforestry, Land use, Fishing, Threatened species and Overexploitation. His research investigates the connection between IUCN Red List and topics such as Range that intersect with problems in Habitat. He has researched Global biodiversity in several fields, including Vegetation, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, Physical geography, Species distribution and Remote sensing.
