Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Christer Nilsson mainly focuses on Ecology, Riparian zone, Ecosystem, Species richness and Plant community. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biological dispersal and Seed dispersal. His work is dedicated to discovering how Seed dispersal, Fragmentation are connected with Irrigation, Unit, Water resource management, Discharge and Drainage basin and other disciplines.

His Riparian zone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Watershed, Biodiversity, Boreal, Species diversity and Hydroelectricity. Water Movements and Restoration ecology is closely connected to Environmental resource management in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Ecosystem. His Species richness research incorporates themes from Hydrology and Community structure.

His most cited work include:

  • Fragmentation and flow regulation of the world's large river systems (2268 citations)
  • Fragmentation and flow regulation of river systems in the northern third of the world. (1362 citations)
  • High‐resolution mapping of the world's reservoirs and dams for sustainable river‐flow management (842 citations)

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

Ecology, Riparian zone, Species richness, Ecosystem and Environmental resource management are his primary areas of study. Ecology is represented through his Boreal, Plant community, Habitat, Vegetation and Biodiversity research. Christer Nilsson interconnects Biomass, Litter and Plant litter in the investigation of issues within Vegetation.

His research in Riparian zone focuses on subjects like Biological dispersal, which are connected to Propagule. His Species richness research integrates issues from Spatial ecology, Species diversity and Substrate. His work carried out in the field of Environmental resource management brings together such families of science as Restoration ecology, Ecology and Ecosystem services.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (70.04%)
  • Riparian zone (51.69%)
  • Species richness (23.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2020)?

  • Ecology (70.04%)
  • Ecosystem (23.60%)
  • Riparian zone (51.69%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ecosystem, Riparian zone, Environmental resource management and Hydrology. Christer Nilsson combines subjects such as Germination and STREAMS with his study of Ecology. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Natural disaster, Land use, Woody plant, Riparian forest and Mediterranean climate.

The various areas that Christer Nilsson examines in his Riparian zone study include Flooding, Climate change, Flood myth and Plant community, Vegetation. His Environmental resource management research includes themes of Green growth, Restoration ecology and Water Movements. The Hydrology study combines topics in areas such as Deposition, Main stem and Fetch.

Between 2016 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Mapping the world’s free-flowing rivers (347 citations)
  • Mapping the world’s free-flowing rivers (347 citations)
  • The effects of hydropeaking on riverine plants: a review. (58 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of study are Ecosystem, Ecology, Riparian zone, Hydropower and Environmental resource management. His Ecology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as STREAMS. His research integrates issues of Restoration ecology, Boreal, Invertebrate, Channel and Channelized in his study of STREAMS.

Specifically, his work in Riparian zone is concerned with the study of Riparian forest. His Hydropower research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Environmental flow, Plant community, Vegetation and Biological dispersal. His Environmental resource management study incorporates themes from Landscape architecture, Floodplain and Water Movements.
