Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Christian Körner focuses on Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Canopy and Biomass. His study in Ecology focuses on Biodiversity, Temperate climate, Growing season, Land use and Soil water. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sink, Decomposer and Horticulture.

His study in Ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biosphere, Leaf area index and Global change. The various areas that Christian Körner examines in his Canopy study include Photosynthesis, Photosynthetic capacity, Agronomy, Plant litter and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere. His Biomass research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Species richness, Grassland, Calcareous grassland, Species diversity and Liana.

His most cited work include:

  • Alpine plant life (2654 citations)
  • Plant diversity and productivity experiments in european grasslands (1572 citations)
  • The use of ‘altitude’ in ecological research (1541 citations)

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

Christian Körner focuses on Ecology, Botany, Agronomy, Ecosystem and Growing season. His Ecology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Elevation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biomass and Horticulture in addition to Botany.

He combines subjects such as Soil water and Nutrient with his study of Agronomy. His Growing season study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Range and Tree line. The Canopy study combines topics in areas such as Temperate forest and Leaf area index.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (41.46%)
  • Botany (27.64%)
  • Agronomy (18.16%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Ecology (41.46%)
  • Physical geography (6.50%)
  • Growing season (14.36%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Physical geography, Growing season, Agronomy and Biodiversity. As part of his studies on Ecology, Christian Körner often connects relevant subjects like Weather station. He has researched Physical geography in several fields, including Elevation, Tropics and Vegetation.

His Growing season study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Range, Vapour Pressure Deficit, Phenology, Alpine plant and Specific leaf area. His Agronomy research incorporates elements of Photosynthesis, Nutrient and Snowmelt. His work carried out in the field of Biodiversity brings together such families of science as Agroforestry, Isotopes of nitrogen, Species richness and Mountain range.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mountain Biodiversity : A Global Assessment (222 citations)
  • Belowground carbon trade among tall trees in a temperate forest (107 citations)
  • Emerging opportunities and challenges in phenology: a review (104 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Christian Körner spends much of his time researching Ecology, Photosynthesis, Phenology, Isotopes of carbon and Carbon dioxide. Many of his studies on Ecology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Elevation. His Phenology research includes themes of Range and Resistance.

As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Isotopes of carbon, concentrating on δ13C and intersecting with Woody plant, Water-use efficiency, Stomatal conductance, Soil water and Explained variation. His Carbon dioxide study combines topics in areas such as Soil carbon, Atmospheric sciences, Carbon sink and Global change. His Growing season research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Dendrochronology, Microevolution, Dendrology and Tree canopy.
