Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Dietrich Hertel mainly focuses on Biomass, Ecology, Agronomy, Agroforestry and Ecosystem. His Biomass research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Species richness and Plant litter. His biological study focuses on Root system.

His Root system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Fagus sylvatica and Soil pH. The concepts of his Agroforestry study are interwoven with issues in Agriculture, Deforestation, Biodiversity and Root shoot ratio. He combines subjects such as Vegetation and Land use with his study of Ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Multifunctional shade‐tree management in tropical agroforestry landscapes – a review (387 citations)
  • Tradeoffs between income, biodiversity, and ecosystem functioning during tropical rainforest conversion and agroforestry intensification (361 citations)
  • Root competition between beech and oak: a hypothesis (196 citations)

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

Dietrich Hertel mainly investigates Biomass, Agronomy, Ecology, Botany and Root system. His studies in Biomass integrate themes in fields like Agroforestry, Biodiversity, Temperate climate, Species richness and Species diversity. As a part of the same scientific family, Dietrich Hertel mostly works in the field of Agronomy, focusing on Plant litter and, on occasion, Forest ecology.

His Ecology course of study focuses on Forestry and Canopy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Soil water and Competition in addition to Botany. Dietrich Hertel has included themes like Picea abies, Woody plant and Monoculture in his Root system study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biomass (39.06%)
  • Agronomy (35.16%)
  • Ecology (32.03%)

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

  • Ecosystem (21.09%)
  • Biomass (39.06%)
  • Agronomy (35.16%)

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

Dietrich Hertel spends much of his time researching Ecosystem, Biomass, Agronomy, Ecology and Nutrient. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil organic matter, Agroforestry, Litter and Tropical climate. His studies deal with areas such as Rainforest and Monoculture as well as Agroforestry.

His Biomass research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Species richness, Botany, Temperate climate and Plant litter. Root system is the focus of his Agronomy research. His Root system research focuses on Beech and how it connects with Soil chemistry.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ecological and socio-economic functions across tropical land use systems after rainforest conversion (127 citations)
  • Climate–land-use interactions shape tropical mountain biodiversity and ecosystem functions (99 citations)
  • Land-use choices follow profitability at the expense of ecological functions in Indonesian smallholder landscapes. (98 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His primary scientific interests are in Ecosystem, Biomass, Agroforestry, Ecology and Organic matter. His studies examine the connections between Ecosystem and genetics, as well as such issues in Tropics, with regards to Ecosystem services, Soil fertility, Botany and Temperate climate. His Biomass study is concerned with the field of Agronomy as a whole.

His research integrates issues of Canopy, Woody plant and Shade tree in his study of Agronomy. His Agroforestry research includes themes of Nutrient cycle, Primary production and Monoculture. His Biodiversity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Rainforest and Species richness.
