Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Biomass and Plant litter. Plant community, Decomposer, Soil biology, Ecology and Ecological succession are the core of his Ecology study. His work deals with themes such as Trophic level, Climate change and Biota, which intersect with Ecosystem.

His work carried out in the field of Biodiversity brings together such families of science as Species richness, Species diversity, Litter and Ecosystem ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Productivity, Carbon cycle and Botany as well as Biomass. His study explores the link between Ecosystem services and topics such as Environmental resource management that cross with problems in Ecosystem management.

His most cited work include:

  • EFFECTS OF BIODIVERSITY ON ECOSYSTEM FUNCTIONING: A CONSENSUS OF CURRENT KNOWLEDGE (5255 citations)
  • EFFECTS OF BIODIVERSITY ON ECOSYSTEM FUNCTIONING: A CONSENSUS OF CURRENT KNOWLEDGE (5255 citations)
  • Biodiversity loss and its impact on humanity (3402 citations)

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

David A. Wardle focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Agronomy and Biomass. His Ecology research focuses on Plant community, Soil biology, Decomposer, Chronosequence and Plant litter. The study incorporates disciplines such as Soil organic matter and Biota in addition to Soil biology.

His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Productivity, Ecological succession and Soil fertility. His Biodiversity research incorporates elements of Ecology, Climate change, Species diversity, Trophic level and Terrestrial ecosystem. His Agronomy research focuses on Botany and how it connects with Competition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (92.90%)
  • Ecosystem (64.50%)
  • Biodiversity (24.95%)

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

  • Ecology (92.90%)
  • Ecosystem (64.50%)
  • Biodiversity (24.95%)

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

David A. Wardle mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Chronosequence and Climate change. All of his Ecology and Biomass, Abundance, Plant community, Soil fertility and Decomposer investigations are sub-components of the entire Ecology study. David A. Wardle interconnects Productivity, Environmental gradient and Soil biology, Soil water in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem.

He has included themes like Competition, Abiotic component and Ecosystem services in his Biodiversity study. In Chronosequence, David A. Wardle works on issues like Taiga, which are connected to Boreal and Functional group. His research on Climate change also deals with topics like

  • Arctic which connect with Seedling,
  • Vegetation which intersects with area such as Tundra.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Linking the influence and dependence of people on biodiversity across scales (224 citations)
  • Linking the influence and dependence of people on biodiversity across scales (224 citations)
  • Invasion Science: A Horizon Scan of Emerging Challenges and Opportunities (166 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Biomass and Soil fertility are his primary areas of study. His study in Climate change, Decomposer, Introduced species, Soil biology and Taiga is done as part of Ecology. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Biosecurity, Productivity, Soil organic matter, Soil water and Species richness.

David A. Wardle combines subjects such as Terrestrial ecosystem, Competition, Extinction and Ecosystem services with his study of Biodiversity. His Biomass study combines topics in areas such as Abundance, Ecological succession and Ecosystem ecology. His work in Soil fertility addresses subjects such as Agronomy, which are connected to disciplines such as Resource, Bulk density and Soil conditioner.
