Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Her primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Ecosystem, Environmental resource management, Ecology and Shrubland. Debra P. C. Peters undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Ecology and Scale through her works. Her Ecosystem research includes elements of Species richness, Grassland, Vegetation and Abiotic component.

The concepts of her Environmental resource management study are interwoven with issues in Urbanization, Pollution, Land management and Ecosystem services. The study incorporates disciplines such as Shrub, Bouteloua and Spatial contextual awareness in addition to Shrubland. The various areas that Debra P. C. Peters examines in her Arid study include Desertification and Atmospheric sciences.

Her most cited work include:

  • The changing landscape : ecosystem responses to urbanization and pollution across climatic and societal gradients (418 citations)
  • Cross-scale interactions, nonlinearities, and forecasting catastrophic events. (372 citations)
  • Shrub encroachment in North American grasslands: shifts in growth form dominance rapidly alters control of ecosystem carbon inputs (361 citations)

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

Debra P. C. Peters mainly investigates Ecology, Ecosystem, Grassland, Arid and Vegetation. Her is involved in several facets of Ecology study, as is seen by her studies on Bouteloua eriopoda, Shrubland, Shrub, Ecology and Ecotone. Her Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Climate change, Agronomy and Environmental resource management.

Her work investigates the relationship between Environmental resource management and topics such as Ecological systems theory that intersect with problems in Temporal scales. Her study on Vegetation also encompasses disciplines like

  • Plant community most often made with reference to Species richness,
  • Hydrology which intersects with area such as Soil water. Her studies deal with areas such as Climatology and Biome as well as Primary production.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (56.42%)
  • Ecosystem (30.73%)
  • Grassland (18.44%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Ecology (56.42%)
  • Data science (8.94%)
  • Term (5.03%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Data science, Term, Shrub and Extreme events. Her study on Disturbance is often connected to Aeolian processes as part of broader study in Ecology. Her research investigates the connection with Shrub and areas like Prosopis glandulosa which intersect with concerns in Shrubland.

Her Shrubland research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecotone, Herbivore, Revegetation and Grassland. Her studies in Extreme events integrate themes in fields like Similarity and Climatology. Debra P. C. Peters has researched Ecosystem in several fields, including Dominance, Soil water and Desertification.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Constraints on shrub cover and shrub-shrub competition in a U.S. southwest desert (7 citations)
  • Constraints on shrub cover and shrub-shrub competition in a U.S. southwest desert (7 citations)
  • Modifying connectivity to promote state change reversal: the importance of geomorphic context and plant-soil feedbacks. (6 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Ecology, Shrub, Ecosystem, Shrub cover and Desert are her primary areas of study. Her multidisciplinary approach integrates Ecology and Term in her work. Debra P. C. Peters interconnects Prosopis glandulosa, Herbivore, Revegetation and Grassland in the investigation of issues within Shrub.

Her work in the fields of Ecosystem services overlaps with other areas such as Aeolian processes. Shrub cover is often connected to Competition in her work.
