Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Photosynthesis and Stomatal conductance are his primary areas of study. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Atmospheric sciences and Ecology. The Botany study combines topics in areas such as Biome and Analytical chemistry.

David S. Ellsworth interconnects Biomass and Grassland in the investigation of issues within Ecosystem. His Photosynthesis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Aceraceae, Maple, Herbaceous plant, Horticulture and Tree species. His study looks at the relationship between Carbon dioxide and topics such as Nitrogen cycle, which overlap with Agronomy, Soil fertility, Carbon sequestration, Carbon sink and Field experiment.

His most cited work include:

  • From tropics to tundra: global convergence in plant functioning (1766 citations)
  • Leaf Life‐Span in Relation to Leaf, Plant, and Stand Characteristics among Diverse Ecosystems (1291 citations)
  • GENERALITY OF LEAF TRAIT RELATIONSHIPS: A TEST ACROSS SIX BIOMES (1029 citations)

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

David S. Ellsworth mostly deals with Botany, Photosynthesis, Agronomy, Ecology and Ecosystem. As part of one scientific family, David S. Ellsworth deals mainly with the area of Botany, narrowing it down to issues related to the Carbon dioxide, and often Carbon cycle, Carbon sequestration and Nitrogen cycle. His work deals with themes such as Canopy, Understory and Horticulture, which intersect with Photosynthesis.

His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Soil water, Nutrient, Interception and Woody plant. His work on Atmospheric sciences expands to the thematically related Ecology. His study looks at the intersection of Ecosystem and topics like Biomass with Productivity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (34.76%)
  • Photosynthesis (32.62%)
  • Agronomy (27.04%)

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

  • Photosynthesis (32.62%)
  • Agronomy (27.04%)
  • Nutrient (12.45%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Photosynthesis, Agronomy, Nutrient, Canopy and Ecosystem. His research on Photosynthesis focuses in particular on Stomatal conductance. His Agronomy research incorporates elements of Range, Primary production, Soil water and Phosphorus limitation.

His studies deal with areas such as Biomass, Eucalypt forest, Carbon dioxide and Carbon sink as well as Nutrient. His Canopy research incorporates themes from Photosynthetic capacity, Carbon cycle, Horticulture and Quercus robur. In his study, Evapotranspiration is inextricably linked to Isotopes of carbon, which falls within the broad field of Ecology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Acclimation and adaptation components of the temperature dependence of plant photosynthesis at the global scale (61 citations)
  • The fate of carbon in a mature forest under carbon dioxide enrichment (58 citations)
  • Climate and soils together regulate photosynthetic carbon isotope discrimination within C3 plants worldwide (34 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

David S. Ellsworth spends much of his time researching Photosynthesis, Stomatal conductance, Ecosystem, Atmospheric sciences and Carbon dioxide. The concepts of his Photosynthesis study are interwoven with issues in Biomass and Ecology. David S. Ellsworth combines subjects such as δ13C and Isotopes of carbon with his study of Ecology.

Stomatal conductance is a subfield of Botany that David S. Ellsworth investigates. His work carried out in the field of Ecosystem brings together such families of science as Nutrient and Vegetation. His Carbon dioxide research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Primary production, Carbon cycle, Carbon sink and Soil respiration.
