Trend in ecology, 2010

Sciences are always in a state of ebb and flow (sorry), and topics of study fall in or out of fashion in response to paradigms shifts, methodological advances, and to support necessary ecological applications.
For the sake of curiosity, I've compiled the top keywords from ecology publications in 2010. Obviously there are many covariates, but it should come as no surprise that the top words were "biodiversity" (667 times), "climate change" (293), and "conservation" (274); other popular keywords were "evolution" (277), "population (ecology)" (273), and the rather vague "patterns" (196).

  1. Sciences have the right point in the 60% of their opinion, It is called the read meaning of the science !

  2. IT is really interesting thinking on solutions for these problems, I think it would be perfect if all people around the world compromise with the planet and the ecology to have a better place to live.
