Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Hans Pretzsch mainly investigates Ecology, Beech, Fagus sylvatica, Picea abies and Allometry. His study in Crown, Canopy, Monoculture, Forest ecology and Shade tolerance is done as part of Ecology. His study on Monoculture also encompasses disciplines like

  • Climate change together with Growing season,
  • Agroforestry that connect with fields like Poverty, Biome and Habitat.

Hans Pretzsch combines subjects such as Quercus petraea, Agronomy and Scots pine with his study of Beech. His Fagus sylvatica research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Basal area, Productivity, Fagaceae, Phenology and Competition. His Allometry research incorporates themes from Range and Tree allometry.

His most cited work include:

  • Positive biodiversity-productivity relationship predominant in global forests (517 citations)
  • Forest Dynamics, Growth, and Yield (421 citations)
  • The single tree-based stand simulator SILVA: construction, application and evaluation (394 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Beech, Ecology, Fagus sylvatica, Forest management and Forestry. Hans Pretzsch has researched Beech in several fields, including Agronomy, Basal area, Picea abies, Scots pine and Competition. Allometry, Crown, Climate change, Canopy and Resistance are subfields of Ecology in which his conducts study.

His studies deal with areas such as Biomass and Tree allometry as well as Allometry. His Fagus sylvatica study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Productivity, Quercus petraea and Atmospheric sciences. His research integrates issues of Biodiversity, Forest ecology, Environmental resource management and Ecosystem services in his study of Forest management.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Beech (33.14%)
  • Ecology (24.57%)
  • Fagus sylvatica (22.57%)

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

  • Beech (33.14%)
  • Forestry (18.29%)
  • Agronomy (14.86%)

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

Hans Pretzsch spends much of his time researching Beech, Forestry, Agronomy, Fagus sylvatica and Forest management. His Beech study incorporates themes from Plant ecology, Hardwood, Quercus petraea and Thinning. His research investigates the connection with Agronomy and areas like Scots pine which intersect with concerns in Climate change.

His Fagus sylvatica study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Picea abies, Tree and Crown. His study in Forest management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Forest ecology and Ecosystem services. His study looks at the intersection of Forest ecology and topics like Biodiversity with Sustainability.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Traits of trees for cooling urban heat islands: A meta-analysis (26 citations)
  • Maintenance of long-term experiments for unique insights into forest growth dynamics and trends: review and perspectives (23 citations)
  • Tree cooling effects and human thermal comfort under contrasting species and sites (22 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Ecosystem

Hans Pretzsch mainly focuses on Forest management, Agronomy, Ecosystem services, Forestry and Climate change. His Forest management research includes themes of Forest ecology and China. His Agronomy research includes elements of Canopy, Quercus petraea and Scots pine.

His Forestry research integrates issues from Citizen journalism and Picea abies, Abies alba. His Fagus sylvatica research focuses on Species diversity and how it relates to Beech. His Crown study is concerned with Ecology in general.
