Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Christian Messier mainly investigates Ecology, Understory, Biodiversity, Taiga and Forest ecology. He conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Ecology and Context through his research. His study in Understory is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Forestry, Atmospheric sciences and Deciduous.

His Biodiversity research incorporates themes from Temperate forest, Temperate rainforest and Ecosystem. His Taiga research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Plant community and Agronomy. His studies in Forest ecology integrate themes in fields like Forest management, Agroforestry, Sustainable management, Environmental resource management and Complex adaptive system.

His most cited work include:

  • Reconciling niche and neutrality: the continuum hypothesis (526 citations)
  • The effect of biodiversity on tree productivity: from temperate to boreal forests (524 citations)
  • Retention Forestry to Maintain Multifunctional Forests: A World Perspective (521 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Botany, Forest management, Forest ecology and Forestry. His Biodiversity, Ecosystem, Understory, Climate change and Temperate climate investigations are all subjects of Ecology research. The concepts of his Biodiversity study are interwoven with issues in Biomass, Abundance, Species richness and Spatial ecology.

His Botany research incorporates elements of Agronomy and Horticulture. Christian Messier works mostly in the field of Forest management, limiting it down to topics relating to Environmental resource management and, in certain cases, Sustainable forest management, Complex adaptive system and Ecosystem management, as a part of the same area of interest. His work deals with themes such as Old-growth forest and Secondary forest, which intersect with Forest ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (56.07%)
  • Botany (24.30%)
  • Forest management (20.56%)

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

  • Ecology (56.07%)
  • Biodiversity (24.77%)
  • Temperate climate (13.32%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Biodiversity, Temperate climate, Climate change and Forest ecology. His is involved in several facets of Ecology study, as is seen by his studies on Ecosystem, Disturbance, Range, Understory and Secondary forest. Christian Messier interconnects Agroforestry, Biomass, Species richness, Spatial ecology and Abiotic component in the investigation of issues within Biodiversity.

His Temperate climate research includes themes of Agronomy, Deciduous, Species distribution, Specific leaf area and Taiga. Much of his study explores Forest ecology relationship to Environmental resource management. The study incorporates disciplines such as Global change and Adaptive capacity in addition to Environmental resource management.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Synthesis and future research directions linking tree diversity to growth, survival, and damage in a global network of tree diversity experiments (62 citations)
  • Synthesis and future research directions linking tree diversity to growth, survival, and damage in a global network of tree diversity experiments (62 citations)
  • A million and more trees for science (43 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Christian Messier mainly focuses on Ecology, Climate change, Temperate climate, Forest ecology and Biodiversity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Old-growth forest, Range, Forest restoration, Productivity and Agricultural land. The Temperate climate study combines topics in areas such as Soil quality, Agronomy, Species distribution, Habitat and Taiga.

His research integrates issues of Biomass, Forestry, Secondary forest, Environmental resource management and Biome in his study of Forest ecology. His work deals with themes such as Spatial ecology, Agroforestry and Ecosystem, which intersect with Biodiversity. His research on Ecosystem often connects related topics like Forest management.
