Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Scots pine, Agronomy, Botany, Ecology and Dendrochronology. His Scots pine research incorporates themes from Viscum album and Irrigation. His research integrates issues of Bark beetle, Bark, Picea abies, Deserts and xeric shrublands and Woody plant in his study of Agronomy.

Ecology is represented through his Climate change, Larch, Ecosystem, Ecotone and Forest management research. His Climate change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Quercus pubescens, Forestry, Greenhouse gas and Forest ecology. The Ecosystem services research he does as part of his general Ecosystem study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Natural hazard, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His most cited work include:

  • A global overview of drought and heat-induced tree mortality reveals emerging climate change risks for forests (4059 citations)
  • Drought as an Inciting Mortality Factor in Scots Pine Stands of the Valais, Switzerland (373 citations)
  • Driving factors of a vegetation shift from Scots pine to pubescent oak in dry Alpine forests (194 citations)

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

Andreas Rigling mainly focuses on Ecology, Scots pine, Agronomy, Climate change and Botany. His Scots pine research includes elements of Crown, Forestry, Basal area and Competition. His Agronomy research focuses on Stomatal conductance and how it relates to Xylem.

Andreas Rigling combines subjects such as Forest management, Forest dynamics and Ecosystem, Ecosystem services with his study of Climate change. Within one scientific family, Andreas Rigling focuses on topics pertaining to Soil water under Ecosystem, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Forest ecology. His Botany research incorporates elements of Quercus pubescens, Dendrochronology and Viscum album.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (47.88%)
  • Scots pine (41.21%)
  • Agronomy (32.73%)

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

  • Ecology (47.88%)
  • Scots pine (41.21%)
  • Agronomy (32.73%)

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

Andreas Rigling focuses on Ecology, Scots pine, Agronomy, Climate change and Forest ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Range, Bark beetle, Soil water, Xylem and Abiotic component as well as Scots pine. He has researched Agronomy in several fields, including Soil nutrients, Nutrient and Pinus .

His Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Niche, Environmental gradient, Intraspecific competition, Biogeochemical cycle and Species richness. His research in Forest ecology focuses on subjects like Temperate rainforest, which are connected to Larch and Dendrochronology. His work in the fields of Ecosystem, such as Ecosystem services, overlaps with other areas such as Rhizosphere.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A first assessment of the impact of the extreme 2018 summer drought on Central European forests (72 citations)
  • Contrasting resistance and resilience to extreme drought and late spring frost in five major European tree species. (40 citations)
  • Contrasting resistance and resilience to extreme drought and late spring frost in five major European tree species. (40 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Ecology, Scots pine, Forest ecology, Resistance and Beech are his primary areas of study. His study in the fields of Growing season, Climate change and Global change under the domain of Ecology overlaps with other disciplines such as Index and Water supply. The concepts of his Climate change study are interwoven with issues in Diameter at breast height, Basal area, Competition and Abiotic component.

His Scots pine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genetic adaptation and Agronomy, Irrigation, Germination. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Range, Acclimatization, Crown size and Radial growth. His studies in Forest ecology integrate themes in fields like Picea abies, Temperate rainforest and Fagus sylvatica.
