Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Organic matter and Isotopes of carbon are his primary areas of study. His Phloem, Beech, Fagus sylvatica, Stomatal conductance and Xylem investigations are all subjects of Botany research. His Beech research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fagaceae, Agronomy and Girdling.

Arthur Gessler interconnects Environmental chemistry and Climate change in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem. Arthur Gessler works mostly in the field of Organic matter, limiting it down to concerns involving Growing season and, occasionally, Atmospheric sciences, Water cycle and Soil water. His studies in Isotopes of carbon integrate themes in fields like Photosynthesis and Carbon dioxide.

His most cited work include:

  • A multi-species synthesis of physiological mechanisms in drought-induced tree mortality (351 citations)
  • Physiological responses of forest trees to heat and drought. (289 citations)
  • Field and laboratory experiments on net uptake of nitrate and ammonium by the roots of spruce (Picea abies) and beech (Fagus sylvatica) trees (249 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Botany, Agronomy, Ecosystem and Forest ecology. His Botany study which covers Organic matter that intersects with Phloem transport. His research in Agronomy intersects with topics in Beech, Nutrient and Scots pine.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental chemistry, Productivity, Vegetation and Water content. Arthur Gessler combines subjects such as Forest management and Forestry with his study of Forest ecology. His study looks at the intersection of Stomatal conductance and topics like Transpiration with Soil water and Fagus sylvatica.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (36.56%)
  • Botany (34.14%)
  • Agronomy (26.59%)

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

  • Agronomy (26.59%)
  • Ecology (36.56%)
  • Scots pine (11.48%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Agronomy, Ecology, Scots pine, Photosynthesis and Irrigation. The concepts of his Agronomy study are interwoven with issues in Soil water, Nutrient, Pinus and Stomatal conductance. His study in Ecology concentrates on Species richness, Forest ecology, Ecosystem, Resistance and Global warming.

His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecology and Abiotic component. His Photosynthesis study is concerned with the larger field of Botany. His Carbon assimilation study in the realm of Botany connects with subjects such as Nicotiana sylvestris.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • 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)
  • Identifying the tree species compositions that maximize ecosystem functioning in European forests (23 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Arthur Gessler focuses on Ecology, Productivity, Scots pine, Forest ecology and Agronomy. His Ecology study frequently links to other fields, such as Plant productivity. His Scots pine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Acclimatization, Crown size and Shoot.

His Forest ecology research is within the category of Ecosystem. Arthur Gessler has researched Ecosystem in several fields, including Picea abies, Fagus sylvatica, Atmospheric sciences and Species distribution. His work on Irrigation, Greenhouse and Field experiment as part of general Agronomy study is frequently connected to Offspring, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.
