Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Botany, Agronomy, Fagus sylvatica and Beech. The study incorporates disciplines such as Soil water, Horticulture and Water content in addition to Botany. His Agronomy research includes elements of Soil organic matter, Soil carbon, Soil pH and Plant litter.

His Beech study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Humus, Fagaceae, Global warming, Xylem and Quercus petraea. He combines subjects such as Hornbeam, Temperate climate, Interspecific competition, Biomass and Productivity with his study of Root system. His studies deal with areas such as Agroforestry, Habitat, Land use, Land use, land-use change and forestry and Species richness as well as Biodiversity.

His most cited work include:

  • Vegetation Mitteleuropas mit den Alpen (1322 citations)
  • BIODIVERSITY INDICATOR GROUPS OF TROPICAL LAND‐USE SYSTEMS: COMPARING PLANTS, BIRDS, AND INSECTS (375 citations)
  • Tradeoffs between income, biodiversity, and ecosystem functioning during tropical rainforest conversion and agroforestry intensification (361 citations)

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

Christoph Leuschner focuses on Ecology, Agronomy, Botany, Fagus sylvatica and Beech. Species richness, Biodiversity, Vegetation, Ecosystem and Habitat are the primary areas of interest in his Ecology study. His work deals with themes such as Soil water, Nutrient and Temperate climate, which intersect with Agronomy.

His Botany research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Horticulture and Water content. The Fagus sylvatica study combines topics in areas such as Forest management, Canopy, Quercus petraea and Plant litter. His Beech study deals with Old-growth forest intersecting with Forest floor and Forest ecology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (41.96%)
  • Agronomy (26.88%)
  • Botany (25.88%)

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

  • Ecology (41.96%)
  • Beech (20.10%)
  • Fagus sylvatica (22.11%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Beech, Fagus sylvatica, Agronomy and Vegetation. His Beech research includes themes of Old-growth forest, Fraxinus, Physical geography and Understory. His Fagus sylvatica study contributes to a more complete understanding of Botany.

The various areas that he examines in his Agronomy study include Soil water and Temperate climate. His Vegetation research incorporates elements of Agroforestry, Species richness, Undergrowth, Forestry and Spring. His work is dedicated to discovering how Biomass, Root system are connected with Soil science and other disciplines.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trade-offs between multifunctionality and profit in tropical smallholder landscapes (359 citations)
  • Ecology of Central European Forests (94 citations)
  • Soil organic carbon stocks in topsoil and subsoil controlled by parent material, carbon input in the rhizosphere, and microbial-derived compounds (71 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Christoph Leuschner mainly focuses on Ecology, Fagus sylvatica, Beech, Old-growth forest and Agronomy. His Fagus sylvatica study is related to the wider topic of Botany. His Beech research integrates issues from Growing season, Climate change, Physical geography, Soil chemistry and Root system.

His work carried out in the field of Root system brings together such families of science as Soil science, Land use, Biomass, Topsoil and Subsoil. His Old-growth forest study combines topics in areas such as Secondary forest, Canopy, Forest dynamics and Cluster analysis. His research integrates issues of Nutrient and Specific leaf area in his study of Agronomy.
