Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Xylem

Hervé Cochard focuses on Xylem, Botany, Transpiration, Hydraulic conductivity and Ecology. His Xylem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Woody plant, Resistance, Cavitation, Mechanics and Quercus petraea. His Botany research includes elements of Soil science and Horticulture.

The concepts of his Transpiration study are interwoven with issues in Phytotron, Agronomy and Stomatal conductance. His work is dedicated to discovering how Hydraulic conductivity, Cultivar are connected with Water deficit and Fruit tree and other disciplines. The various areas that he examines in his Ecology study include Hydraulic efficiency and Scots pine.

His most cited work include:

  • Global convergence in the vulnerability of forests to drought (1256 citations)
  • Global convergence in the vulnerability of forests to drought (1256 citations)
  • Biophysical Perspectives of Xylem Evolution: is there a Tradeoff of Hydraulic Efficiency for Vulnerability to Dysfunction? (497 citations)

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

Hervé Cochard mostly deals with Xylem, Botany, Horticulture, Hydraulic conductivity and Transpiration. His Xylem research integrates issues from Cavitation, Soil science, Ecology and Stomatal conductance. His study in the fields of Resistance, Phenotypic plasticity, Intraspecific competition and Adaptation under the domain of Ecology overlaps with other disciplines such as Context.

Borrowing concepts from Water transport, Hervé Cochard weaves in ideas under Botany. His Hydraulic conductivity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Woody plant, Tracheid and Scots pine. Hervé Cochard works mostly in the field of Transpiration, limiting it down to topics relating to Agronomy and, in certain cases, Canopy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Xylem (82.04%)
  • Botany (66.47%)
  • Horticulture (23.05%)

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

  • Xylem (82.04%)
  • Ecology (26.65%)
  • Transpiration (25.15%)

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

Hervé Cochard mainly focuses on Xylem, Ecology, Transpiration, Botany and Embolism. Xylem is a subfield of Horticulture that Hervé Cochard explores. Hervé Cochard usually deals with Horticulture and limits it to topics linked to Cavitation and Flow.

His work in the fields of Ecology, such as Water use, Climate change, Intraspecific competition and Ecosystem, intersects with other areas such as Deserts and xeric shrublands. His Transpiration research incorporates elements of Hydraulic efficiency and Aquaporin. His Botany study frequently involves adjacent topics like X-ray microtomography.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Weak tradeoff between xylem safety and xylem-specific hydraulic efficiency across the world's woody plant species (269 citations)
  • Weak tradeoff between xylem safety and xylem-specific hydraulic efficiency across the world's woody plant species (269 citations)
  • Plant resistance to drought depends on timely stomatal closure. (212 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Xylem, Ecology, Botany, Embolism and Resistance. His Xylem study is concerned with the field of Horticulture as a whole. His research on Ecology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Radial growth.

In general Botany, his work in Petiole and Pinitol is often linked to Water transport and Sugar linking many areas of study. Hervé Cochard focuses mostly in the field of Resistance, narrowing it down to topics relating to Arid and, in certain cases, Biomass, Pinus canariensis, Adaptation, Genetic variation and Phenotypic plasticity. The concepts of his Transpiration study are interwoven with issues in Hydraulic efficiency and Woody plant.
