Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Habitat

Tim M. Blackburn focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Introduced species, Range and Species richness. His work on Ecology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Extinction. Tim M. Blackburn has researched Biodiversity in several fields, including Natural resource, Conservation biology and Environmental resource management.

His Introduced species research incorporates themes from Environmental planning, Propagule pressure, Ecosystem and Invasive species. He has included themes like Spatial ecology, Evolutionary ecology and Spatial variability in his Range study. His work in Species richness tackles topics such as Bergmann's rule which are related to areas like Geographic variation.

His most cited work include:

  • The role of propagule pressure in explaining species invasions. (1828 citations)
  • A proposed unified framework for biological invasions. (1158 citations)
  • A proposed unified framework for biological invasions. (1158 citations)

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

Tim M. Blackburn mainly focuses on Ecology, Introduced species, Biodiversity, Range and Species richness. His Ecology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Alien. His Introduced species research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Zoology, Predation, Invasive species, Propagule pressure and Ecosystem.

As a part of the same scientific family, Tim M. Blackburn mostly works in the field of Range, focusing on Extinction and, on occasion, Threatened species. His work carried out in the field of Species richness brings together such families of science as Spatial ecology, Global biodiversity, Taxonomic rank and Biogeography. Tim M. Blackburn works mostly in the field of Abundance, limiting it down to topics relating to Macroecology and, in certain cases, Ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (115.48%)
  • Introduced species (39.80%)
  • Biodiversity (33.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (115.48%)
  • Alien (37.35%)
  • Biodiversity (33.17%)

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

Tim M. Blackburn mostly deals with Ecology, Alien, Biodiversity, Alien species and Species richness. Ecology is often connected to Propagule pressure in his work. His Alien study combines topics in areas such as Taxon, Range, Environmental change and Population size.

Tim M. Blackburn interconnects Population density and Environmental planning in the investigation of issues within Biodiversity. His studies deal with areas such as Taxonomic rank, Niche and Species distribution as well as Alien species. His research in Introduced species focuses on subjects like Null model, which are connected to Biological dispersal, Plant Dispersal, Propagule and Ecology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global rise in emerging alien species results from increased accessibility of new source pools. (165 citations)
  • Global rise in emerging alien species results from increased accessibility of new source pools. (165 citations)
  • Global rise in emerging alien species results from increased accessibility of new source pools. (165 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Genus

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Alien species and Introduced species. Tim M. Blackburn combines subjects such as Propagule pressure and Alien with his study of Ecology. His Alien research includes themes of IUCN Red List, Environmental change and Native plant.

His work in Biodiversity addresses subjects such as Species richness, which are connected to disciplines such as Habitat and Disturbance. In his study, Global biodiversity, Convention on Biological Diversity, Conservation science, Biodiversity assessment and Species diversity is strongly linked to Invasive species, which falls under the umbrella field of Ecosystem. His Alien species study deals with Taxonomic rank intersecting with Invertebrate, Temperate climate and Fauna.
