Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Brandon T. Bestelmeyer mainly focuses on Ecology, Environmental resource management, Vegetation, Shrubland and Rangeland. His study in Ecology focuses on Ecosystem, Arid, Habitat, Spatial heterogeneity and System dynamics. Brandon T. Bestelmeyer has researched Environmental resource management in several fields, including Ecological resilience, Public land, Desertification, Ecosystem services and Land management.

His work carried out in the field of Vegetation brings together such families of science as Rangeland management, Grazing and Species richness. He combines subjects such as Plant community and Agroforestry with his study of Shrubland. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil science, Soil properties and Land use.

His most cited work include:

  • Cross-scale interactions, nonlinearities, and forecasting catastrophic events. (372 citations)
  • Historical and Modern Disturbance Regimes, Stand Structures, and Landscape Dynamics in Piñon–Juniper Vegetation of the Western United States (269 citations)
  • The Effects of Land Use on the Structure of Ground‐Foraging Ant Communities in the Argentine Chaco (226 citations)

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

Brandon T. Bestelmeyer focuses on Ecology, Environmental resource management, Rangeland, Vegetation and Ecosystem. Shrub, Shrubland, Grassland, Species richness and Arid are the subjects of his Ecology studies. His Environmental resource management research focuses on subjects like Ecosystem services, which are linked to Natural resource economics.

In his work, Agriculture is strongly intertwined with Sustainability, which is a subfield of Rangeland. The Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Rangeland management and Steppe. His research integrates issues of Ecological resilience and Ecosystem management in his study of Plant community.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (54.27%)
  • Environmental resource management (29.27%)
  • Rangeland (26.83%)

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

  • Ecology (54.27%)
  • Rangeland (26.83%)
  • Environmental resource management (29.27%)

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

Brandon T. Bestelmeyer mainly investigates Ecology, Rangeland, Environmental resource management, Shrub and Ecosystem services. When carried out as part of a general Ecology research project, his work on Estuary, Tundra and Salt marsh is frequently linked to work in Urban ecosystem and Term, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Rangeland research integrates issues from Remote sensing and Vegetation.

His work on Forb as part of his general Vegetation study is frequently connected to Criollo tobacco, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. The various areas that he examines in his Environmental resource management study include Woodland and Global change. His Shrub research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Prosopis glandulosa, Woody plant, Grassland and Competition.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Innovation in rangeland monitoring: annual, 30 m, plant functional type percent cover maps for U.S. rangelands, 1984–2017 (54 citations)
  • The Grassland–Shrubland Regime Shift in the Southwestern United States: Misconceptions and Their Implications for Management (30 citations)
  • Evaluating strategies for sustainable intensification of US agriculture through the Long-Term Agroecosystem Research network (27 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Shrub, Rangeland, Ecosystem services, Ecology and Environmental resource management are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Prosopis glandulosa and Competition as well as Shrub. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Land cover, Forestry and Plant functional type.

His Ecosystem services research incorporates elements of Agriculture, Agricultural productivity and Sustainability. His study in the field of Shrub cover, Productivity and Primary production also crosses realms of Desert and Desert. As a part of the same scientific family, Brandon T. Bestelmeyer mostly works in the field of Environmental resource management, focusing on Food security and, on occasion, Vegetation.
