Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Botany, Lichen, Ecology, Thallus and Photosynthesis. His Plant physiology study in the realm of Botany interacts with subjects such as Chroococcidiopsis. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Lichen, concentrating on Biome and intersecting with Substrate.

His work in Ecology addresses subjects such as Chlorophyll a, which are connected to disciplines such as Photosynthetic capacity. His work on Lichen morphology as part of general Thallus study is frequently linked to Nostoc, bridging the gap between disciplines. Sand dune stabilization, Crust and Moss is closely connected to Algae in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Photosynthesis.

His most cited work include:

  • Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny (1413 citations)
  • Progress in Botany (479 citations)
  • The Ascomycota Tree of Life: A Phylum-wide Phylogeny Clarifies the Origin and Evolution of Fundamental Reproductive and Ecological Traits (462 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Lichen, Botany, Photosynthesis and Biological soil crust. His study in Habitat, Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Algae and Species richness falls under the purview of Ecology. His Lichen research includes themes of Thallus, Lichinaceae, Understory, Arid and Microclimate.

His research in the fields of Rainforest, Photosynthetic capacity and Moss overlaps with other disciplines such as Chroococcidiopsis and Nostoc. His work focuses on many connections between Photosynthesis and other disciplines, such as Water content, that overlap with his field of interest in Biomass. His research in Biological soil crust intersects with topics in Soil crust and Earth science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (52.20%)
  • Lichen (38.99%)
  • Botany (28.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Ecology (52.20%)
  • Lichen (38.99%)
  • Soil water (8.81%)

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

Burkhard Büdel mainly investigates Ecology, Lichen, Soil water, Species richness and Arid. Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Habitat, Algae and Biological soil crust are among the areas of Ecology where Burkhard Büdel concentrates his study. His studies deal with areas such as Thallus, Biogeochemical cycle, Psora decipiens, Vegetation and Acclimatization as well as Lichen.

Soil water and Botany are commonly linked in his work. Burkhard Büdel has included themes like Inoculation, Soil quality and Abiotic component in his Botany study. His Arid research incorporates elements of National park, Bryophyte, Nature reserve and Agroforestry.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dryland photoautotrophic soil surface communities endangered by global change (103 citations)
  • Development of the polysaccharidic matrix in biocrusts induced by a cyanobacterium inoculated in sand microcosms (41 citations)
  • Biological soil crusts of Arctic Svalbard and of Livingston Island, Antarctica (37 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Burkhard Büdel spends much of his time researching Ecology, Soil water, Climate change, Lichen and Biological soil crust. The Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Photosynthesis and Lasallia pustulata. His study in the field of Soil properties also crosses realms of Water flow.

His work carried out in the field of Climate change brings together such families of science as Atmospheric sciences, Ecosystem, Nitrogen cycle, Physical geography and Arid. His Lichen study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology, Thallus, Sexual reproduction and Cline. His Biological soil crust research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Soil structure, Soil biology and Microclimate.
