Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Metabolic theory of ecology, Allometry, Trophic level and Ectotherm. His studies link Asymmetry with Ecology. His Metabolic theory of ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Carrying capacity, Evolutionary ecology and Genetic Speciation.

His research investigates the connection with Allometry and areas like Body size which intersect with concerns in Confidence interval and Cell biology. His Ectotherm research incorporates themes from Range, Climate change, Mean radiant temperature, Atmospheric sciences and Environmental factor. In his work, Competition, Ecology, Resource, Exponential growth and Fecundity is strongly intertwined with Population growth, which is a subfield of Biomass.

His most cited work include:

  • Toward a metabolic theory of ecology (4466 citations)
  • Toward a metabolic theory of ecology (4466 citations)
  • Effects of Size and Temperature on Metabolic Rate (2365 citations)

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

Van M. Savage spends much of his time researching Ecology, Allometry, Scaling, Statistical physics and Ecosystem. Metabolic theory of ecology, Trophic level, Ecology, Climate change and Biomass are among the areas of Ecology where Van M. Savage concentrates his study. In his work, Van M. Savage performs multidisciplinary research in Metabolic theory of ecology and Basal metabolic rate.

The Allometry study combines topics in areas such as Body size, Combinatorics and Ectotherm. His research investigates the link between Ectotherm and topics such as Environmental factor that cross with problems in Zooplankton. His Scaling research incorporates themes from Scale, Network model and Curse of dimensionality.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (68.16%)
  • Allometry (36.87%)
  • Scaling (25.14%)

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

  • Ecology (68.16%)
  • Antibiotics (13.97%)
  • Antibiotic resistance (6.70%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Antibiotics, Antibiotic resistance, Ecosystem and Escherichia coli. His work on Range as part of his general Ecology study is frequently connected to Interaction type, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Productivity, Elevation, Ecology, Species richness and Global change.

His Antibiotics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Global warming and Climate change. His Antibiotic resistance study incorporates themes from Order and Drug. The concepts of his Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Biodiversity, Macroecology and Environmental resource management.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Thermal biology of mosquito-borne disease (95 citations)
  • Thermal biology of mosquito-borne disease (95 citations)
  • Climate shapes and shifts functional biodiversity in forests worldwide. (39 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Gene

Van M. Savage mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Range, Ontogeny and Non-rapid eye movement sleep. His work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Dengue virus and Mosquito-borne disease. His study in Ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biodiversity, Macroecology, Climate change and Environmental resource management.

His studies deal with areas such as Elevation, Productivity, Ecology, Species richness and Global change as well as Range. His Ontogeny research includes themes of Sleep in non-human animals, Neuroplasticity, Neuroscience and Transition.
