Cathy Whitlock mostly deals with Fire regime, Climate change, Vegetation, Holocene and Ecology. She has researched Fire regime in several fields, including Dendrochronology, Forestry and Environmental resource management. As a member of one scientific family, Cathy Whitlock mostly works in the field of Climate change, focusing on Range and, on occasion, Greenhouse effect and Habitat.
In her work, Steppe and Spatial ecology is strongly intertwined with Last Glacial Maximum, which is a subfield of Vegetation. Her Holocene research integrates issues from National park, Glacial period, Climatology and Paleoclimatology. Her research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Physical geography and Ecology.
Her primary areas of study are Vegetation, Ecology, Holocene, Climate change and Physical geography. In her study, Oceanography is inextricably linked to Pollen, which falls within the broad field of Vegetation. Her study in Holocene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Glacial period, Ecotone, Nothofagus and Paleoclimatology.
Her Climate change research incorporates elements of Temperate rainforest and Subtropical ridge. Her work focuses on many connections between Physical geography and other disciplines, such as National park, that overlap with her field of interest in Sediment. Her Fire regime study incorporates themes from Environmental resource management and Fire ecology.
Cathy Whitlock mainly focuses on Ecology, Vegetation, Climate change, Holocene and Oceanography. The Fire regime, Rainforest and Paleoclimatology research Cathy Whitlock does as part of her general Ecology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Human environment, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. The various areas that Cathy Whitlock examines in her Fire regime study include Shrubland and Fire ecology.
Her Vegetation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Pollen, Ecosystem, Paleoecology and Land use. Cathy Whitlock combines subjects such as Climatology, Woodland, Environmental resource management and Disturbance with her study of Climate change. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Dominance, Glacial period and Physical geography.
Her primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Climate change, Vegetation, Disturbance and Fire regime. Cathy Whitlock interconnects Glacial period, Climatology, Palynology, Physical geography and Plateau in the investigation of issues within Climate change. Her Climatology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Deglaciation, Holocene and Lacustrine deposits.
Her work carried out in the field of Vegetation brings together such families of science as Pollen, Land use, Canopy, Ecosystem and Prehistory. Her Disturbance research incorporates themes from Forest management, Forest ecology and Forest dynamics. Her Fire regime research includes elements of Taxon, Environmental resource management, Fire ecology, Rainforest and Plant community.
