Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

David M. J. S. Bowman focuses on Ecology, Fire regime, Vegetation, Climate change and Biodiversity. He frequently studies issues relating to Monsoon and Ecology. His Fire regime research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Habitat, Disturbance, Physical geography, Dry season and Woodland.

His Vegetation study incorporates themes from Biomass, National park, Woody plant and Land management. He combines subjects such as Ecosystem and Environmental resource management with his study of Climate change. David M. J. S. Bowman has researched Biodiversity in several fields, including Animal ecology, Wildlife and Introduced species.

His most cited work include:

  • Fire in the Earth System (1654 citations)
  • Flammable biomes dominated by eucalypts originated at the Cretaceous-Palaeogene boundary (1280 citations)
  • Climate-induced variations in global wildfire danger from 1979 to 2013 (601 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Vegetation, Fire regime, Rainforest and Climate change. His research on Ecology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Monsoon. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Agroforestry, Woody plant, Grassland, Physical geography and Woodland.

His Fire regime research integrates issues from Forest management and Landscape ecology, Habitat. His Rainforest research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Eucalyptus and Alternative stable state. His Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Temperate climate and Environmental resource management.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (66.74%)
  • Vegetation (20.73%)
  • Fire regime (20.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Ecology (66.74%)
  • Climate change (13.90%)
  • Fire regime (20.96%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Climate change, Fire regime, Vegetation and Ecosystem. His study in Rainforest, Fire ecology, Disturbance, Herbivore and Tropical savanna climate is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Eucalyptus, Climatology, Greenhouse gas and Temperate climate in addition to Climate change.

His Fire regime research incorporates elements of Edaphic, Vegetation type, Callitris, Fire protection and Dendrochronology. His Vegetation study also includes

  • Physical geography that connect with fields like Aerial photography,
  • Agroforestry and related Ecological succession, Woodland, Landscape ecology and National park. He works mostly in the field of Ecosystem, limiting it down to topics relating to Biodiversity and, in certain cases, Environmental resource management, Adaptive management, Trophic level, Ecology and Restoration ecology, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climate-induced variations in global wildfire danger from 1979 to 2013 (601 citations)
  • Interval squeeze: altered fire regimes and demographic responses interact to threaten woody species persistence as climate changes (190 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Climate change, Fire regime, Environmental resource management and Ecosystem. David M. J. S. Bowman combines topics linked to Photosynthetic capacity with his work on Ecology. His research integrates issues of Subtropics, Mediterranean climate, Climatology and Smoke in his study of Climate change.

His Fire regime study contributes to a more complete understanding of Vegetation. His Environmental resource management research incorporates elements of Anthropocene and Agency. He interconnects Biodiversity and Global climate in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem.
