Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Agronomy, Soil water, Ecology, Dry season and Throughfall. His Ecosystem research extends to Agronomy, which is thematically connected. His Ecology study incorporates themes from Forestry and Animal science.

His research in Dry season intersects with topics in Water use, Wet season, Anacardium excelsum and Transpiration. His Throughfall research includes themes of Water content and Plant litter. His Canopy research focuses on Basal area and how it relates to Agroforestry, Species richness and Water-use efficiency.

His most cited work include:

  • Multifunctional shade‐tree management in tropical agroforestry landscapes – a review (387 citations)
  • Trade-offs between multifunctionality and profit in tropical smallholder landscapes (359 citations)
  • Stand fine root biomass and fine root morphology in old-growth beech forests as a function of precipitation and soil fertility (170 citations)

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

Dirk Hölscher mainly focuses on Agroforestry, Agronomy, Canopy, Botany and Forestry. His Agroforestry research incorporates elements of Biodiversity, Basal area, Tropics, Woody plant and Rainforest. His study in Agronomy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Soil water and Transpiration.

Throughfall is closely connected to Interception in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Canopy. His work in the fields of Fagus sylvatica, Specific leaf area and Root system overlaps with other areas such as Tilia platyphyllos. His work carried out in the field of Forestry brings together such families of science as Ecology and Secondary succession.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Agroforestry (29.32%)
  • Agronomy (24.06%)
  • Canopy (18.80%)

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

  • Agroforestry (29.32%)
  • Biodiversity (9.77%)
  • Water use (15.04%)

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

His main research concerns Agroforestry, Biodiversity, Water use, Bamboo and Horticulture. Dirk Hölscher is involved in the study of Agroforestry that focuses on Shade tree in particular. He has included themes like Monoculture, Land use, Ecosystem, Ecosystem services and Shorea leprosula in his Biodiversity study.

His Monoculture study is concerned with Agronomy in general. The study incorporates disciplines such as Land use, land-use change and forestry and Livelihood in addition to Ecosystem. The concepts of his Water use study are interwoven with issues in Rainforest, Photogrammetry and Transpiration.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trade-offs between multifunctionality and profit in tropical smallholder landscapes (359 citations)
  • Reducing Fertilizer and Avoiding Herbicides in Oil Palm Plantations—Ecological and Economic Valuations (22 citations)
  • Land‐use history determines ecosystem services and conservation value in tropical agroforestry (13 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Biodiversity, Monoculture, Agroforestry, Bamboo and Land use are his primary areas of study. Dirk Hölscher has researched Biodiversity in several fields, including Soil water, Ecosystem, Biomass, Weed control and Tree planting. His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Land use, land-use change and forestry and Livelihood.

His Monoculture research is within the category of Agronomy. Agroforestry and Rainforest are frequently intertwined in his study. His Land use study combines topics in areas such as Carbon stock and Ecosystem services.
