What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Wilfried Thuiller mainly investigates Ecology, Climate change, Biodiversity, Range and Species distribution. His Ecology and Environmental niche modelling, Species richness, Ecological niche, Habitat and Introduced species investigations all form part of his Ecology research activities. The various areas that Wilfried Thuiller examines in his Climate change study include Biological dispersal and Extinction.

The Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Umbrella species, Ecosystem, Biome and Invasive species. Wilfried Thuiller combines subjects such as Propagule and Land use, land-use change and forestry with his study of Range. His Species distribution research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Habitat destruction, Ordination and Threatened species.

His most cited work include:

  • Predicting species distribution: offering more than simple habitat models (4251 citations)
  • Impacts of climate change on the future of biodiversity. (1838 citations)
  • Climate change threats to plant diversity in Europe (1730 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Climate change, Biodiversity, Species distribution and Range. His study connects Biological dispersal and Ecology. His study looks at the relationship between Climate change and fields such as Ecosystem, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Environmental resource management, Invasive species, Phylogenetic diversity, Species diversity and Introduced species in addition to Biodiversity. His studies in Species distribution integrate themes in fields like Alpine plant, Environmental niche modelling and Threatened species. His Species richness research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Spatial ecology and Spatial distribution.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (91.46%)
  • Climate change (37.94%)
  • Biodiversity (33.67%)

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

  • Ecology (91.46%)
  • Biodiversity (33.67%)
  • Climate change (37.94%)

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

Ecology, Biodiversity, Climate change, Species distribution and Species richness are his primary areas of study. Ecology is closely attributed to Phylogenetic diversity in his work. Wilfried Thuiller interconnects Habitat, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Field and Environmental resource management in the investigation of issues within Biodiversity.

His Climate change study also includes

  • Propagule pressure, which have a strong connection to Global and Planetary Change,
  • Vegetation and related Global change. His Species distribution research integrates issues from Environmental niche modelling and Dimensionality reduction. His Range research incorporates themes from Niche, Ecological niche and Threatened species.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Outstanding Challenges in the Transferability of Ecological Models. (136 citations)
  • Comparing species interaction networks along environmental gradients. (99 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Biodiversity

Wilfried Thuiller focuses on Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Species distribution and Ecology. He applies his multidisciplinary studies on Ecology and Context in his research. His work in the fields of Biodiversity, such as Global biodiversity, overlaps with other areas such as Structuring.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil biology, Soil mesofauna, Propagule and Community. The concepts of his Species distribution study are interwoven with issues in Range, Endangered species and Interspecific competition. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Data integration, Database, Ecosystem model, Functional ecology and Representativeness heuristic.
