Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

Epiphyte, Ecology, Botany, Bromeliaceae and Orchidaceae are his primary areas of study. His Epiphyte research incorporates elements of Rainforest, Biological dispersal and Abiotic component. His Ecology research focuses on Species richness, Plant ecology, Habitat, Panama and Biodiversity.

His Species richness study incorporates themes from Abundance and Species diversity. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nutrient and Agronomy. His research in Orchidaceae intersects with topics in Vascular plant and Evolutionary ecology.

His most cited work include:

  • Carbon Flux and Growth in Mature Deciduous Forest Trees Exposed to Elevated CO2 (471 citations)
  • The physiological ecology of vascular epiphytes: current knowledge, open questions (264 citations)
  • Effects of natural intensities of visible and ultraviolet radiation on epidermal ultraviolet screening and photosynthesis in grape leaves. (261 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Epiphyte, Ecology, Botany, Bromeliaceae and Photosynthesis. He has included themes like Orchidaceae, Habitat, Species richness, Panama and Nutrient in his Epiphyte study. Gerhard Zotz combines topics linked to Biological dispersal with his work on Ecology.

His studies examine the connections between Botany and genetics, as well as such issues in Horticulture, with regards to Dry season. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Range, Interspecific competition and Substrate. Gerhard Zotz usually deals with Photosynthesis and limits it to topics linked to Diel vertical migration and Thallus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Epiphyte (104.44%)
  • Ecology (92.96%)
  • Botany (59.26%)

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

  • Epiphyte (104.44%)
  • Ecology (92.96%)
  • Habitat (21.85%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Epiphyte, Ecology, Habitat, Botany and Species richness. His studies deal with areas such as Relative species abundance, Secondary forest, Ecosystem, Biological dispersal and Bromeliaceae as well as Epiphyte. His work on Tillandsioideae is typically connected to Bromelioideae as part of general Bromeliaceae study, connecting several disciplines of science.

His Ecology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Metacommunity. His work is dedicated to discovering how Habitat, Biotic component are connected with Tropical forest and other disciplines. His Species richness research includes themes of Cloud forest, Undergrowth, Forest dynamics and Species diversity.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Plants on Plants – The Biology of Vascular Epiphytes (102 citations)
  • Secondary foundation species enhance biodiversity. (47 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

Gerhard Zotz mainly focuses on Epiphyte, Ecology, Habitat, Biodiversity and Botany. Gerhard Zotz has researched Epiphyte in several fields, including Global warming, Range, Tropics and Bromeliaceae. Gerhard Zotz combines Ecology and Trait in his research.

He combines subjects such as Biotic component and Abundance with his study of Habitat. His Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Ecology, Functional ecology and Identification. His work on Velamen, Epidermis, Spore and Manihot esculenta as part of his general Botany study is frequently connected to Terminal velocity, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
