What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Statistics

Ecology, Botany, Ecosystem, Vegetation and Range are his primary areas of study. His Ecology study frequently links to related topics such as Specific leaf area. The various areas that Ian J. Wright examines in his Specific leaf area study include Dry weight and Nutrient.

His Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Evolutionary ecology and Horticulture. His work on Nutrient cycle as part of his general Ecosystem study is frequently connected to Generality, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Range study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Woody plant and Interspecific competition.

His most cited work include:

  • The worldwide leaf economics spectrum (4498 citations)
  • Plant Ecological Strategies: Some Leading Dimensions of Variation Between Species (1884 citations)
  • New handbook for standardised measurement of plant functional traits worldwide (1676 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Botany, Photosynthesis, Agronomy and Specific leaf area. Ian J. Wright regularly ties together related areas like Leaf size in his Ecology studies. His research links Horticulture with Botany.

The Photosynthesis study which covers Respiration that intersects with Acclimatization. Ian J. Wright works mostly in the field of Agronomy, limiting it down to topics relating to Nutrient and, in certain cases, Soil water and Soil fertility, as a part of the same area of interest. His research in Specific leaf area intersects with topics in Canopy, Allometry and Interspecific competition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (46.35%)
  • Botany (25.52%)
  • Photosynthesis (19.79%)

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

  • Ecology (46.35%)
  • Agronomy (18.75%)
  • Photosynthetic capacity (13.54%)

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

Ian J. Wright spends much of his time researching Ecology, Agronomy, Photosynthetic capacity, Ecosystem and Climate change. Ecology is frequently linked to Stomatal conductance in his study. His studies deal with areas such as Soil water, Abiotic component and Interspecific competition as well as Agronomy.

His Photosynthetic capacity research integrates issues from Hydraulic conductance and Turgor pressure. The Ecosystem study combines topics in areas such as Conservation planning, Tree diversity, Global biodiversity and Threatened species. His study focuses on the intersection of Specific leaf area and fields such as Principal component analysis with connections in the field of Biome.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Convergence in Maximum Stomatal Conductance of C3 Woody Angiosperms in Natural Ecosystems Across Bioclimatic Zones. (155 citations)
  • Global photosynthetic capacity is optimized to the environment (56 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Statistics

Ian J. Wright mainly focuses on Ecology, Photosynthetic capacity, Stomatal conductance, Vegetation and Ecosystem. His study in Cultivar extends to Ecology with its themes. His Photosynthetic capacity research includes elements of Acclimatization, Carbon cycle and Atmospheric sciences.

His Stomatal conductance study is concerned with the larger field of Botany. His Vegetation study incorporates themes from Biomass, Leaf size, Agronomy and Predictive modelling. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Evergreen, Deciduous, Water-use efficiency and Taiga.
