Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Carbon dioxide

His scientific interests lie mostly in Botany, Ecology, Stable isotope ratio, Photosynthesis and Isotopes of carbon. The study incorporates disciplines such as Deserts and xeric shrublands and Agronomy in addition to Botany. His Agronomy research includes elements of Woody plant and Water content.

His studies examine the connections between Stable isotope ratio and genetics, as well as such issues in Isotopes of oxygen, with regards to Environmental chemistry, δ18O and Atmosphere. His work on Photosynthetic pathway is typically connected to Quantum yield as part of general Photosynthesis study, connecting several disciplines of science. The Isotopes of carbon study combines topics in areas such as Isotope analysis, Carbon dioxide and Animal science.

His most cited work include:

  • Carbon Isotope Discrimination and Photosynthesis (5077 citations)
  • A global analysis of root distributions for terrestrial biomes (2052 citations)
  • Global vegetation change through the Miocene/Pliocene boundary (1522 citations)

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

Botany, Ecology, Stable isotope ratio, Photosynthesis and Isotopes of carbon are his primary areas of study. His work is dedicated to discovering how Botany, Agronomy are connected with Water content and other disciplines. His work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Atmospheric sciences and Precipitation.

His studies in Stable isotope ratio integrate themes in fields like Environmental chemistry, Isotope analysis, Isotopes of oxygen and Isotope. James R. Ehleringer studies Photosynthesis, focusing on Encelia farinosa in particular. His Isotopes of carbon study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Carbon dioxide.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (31.24%)
  • Ecology (26.72%)
  • Stable isotope ratio (22.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Stable isotope ratio (22.00%)
  • Isotope (10.61%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (10.81%)

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

James R. Ehleringer spends much of his time researching Stable isotope ratio, Isotope, Atmospheric sciences, Hydrology and Botany. His research on Stable isotope ratio also deals with topics like

  • Isotopes of carbon together with Animal protein,
  • Acetone which intersects with area such as Chromatography. His studies deal with areas such as Isotope analysis, Isotopes of oxygen and Analytical chemistry as well as Isotope.

His Atmospheric sciences study also includes fields such as

  • Atmosphere which connect with Climatology,
  • Vapour Pressure Deficit and related Drought recovery, Climate change, Physical geography, δ13C and Stomatal conductance. His Botany study which covers Wax that intersects with Environmental chemistry, Transect and Monsoon. His research investigates the connection between Photosynthesis and topics such as Agronomy that intersect with problems in Arid.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Leaf-wax n-alkanes record the plant–water environment at leaf flush (124 citations)
  • Long-term urban carbon dioxide observations reveal spatial and temporal dynamics related to urban characteristics and growth. (54 citations)
  • Urban high-resolution fossil fuel CO2 emissions quantification and exploration of emission drivers for potential policy applications (36 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Carbon dioxide

James R. Ehleringer mostly deals with Stable isotope ratio, Hydrology, Atmospheric sciences, Greenhouse gas and Botany. The concepts of his Stable isotope ratio study are interwoven with issues in Ecology, Wax, Trace element analysis and Precipitation. His Hydrology research integrates issues from Soil water and Eddy covariance.

The various areas that James R. Ehleringer examines in his Atmospheric sciences study include Spatial ecology, Fossil fuel and Atmosphere. His work on Stomatal conductance, Transpiration, C4 photosynthesis and RuBisCO as part of general Botany research is frequently linked to Plant evolution, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Growing season is the subject of his research, which falls under Ecology.
