Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Habitat

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Floodplain, River ecosystem, Hydrology and Riparian zone. His STREAMS research extends to the thematically linked field of Ecology. His research integrates issues of Alluvium, Biodiversity, Spatial heterogeneity and Flood myth in his study of Floodplain.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Landscape ecology and Floodplain restoration in addition to River ecosystem. Many of his research projects under Hydrology are closely connected to Distance measures and Computer science with Distance measures and Computer science, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. James V. Ward usually deals with Riparian zone and limits it to topics linked to Groundwater and Outwash plain.

His most cited work include:

  • Biodiversity of floodplain river ecosystems: ecotones and connectivity1 (858 citations)
  • The Four-Dimensional Nature of Lotic Ecosystems (815 citations)
  • Riverine landscape diversity (807 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Floodplain, Hydrology, River ecosystem and Habitat. James V. Ward has researched Ecology in several fields, including Glacial period and STREAMS. His Floodplain study also includes fields such as

  • Biodiversity together with Ecotone,
  • Species richness that connect with fields like Fauna.

His studies link Sediment with Hydrology. His research in River ecosystem intersects with topics in Ecology and Environmental protection. James V. Ward has included themes like Channel and Alluvial plain in his Aquifer study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (81.69%)
  • Floodplain (38.03%)
  • Hydrology (38.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2000-2008)?

  • Ecology (81.69%)
  • Floodplain (38.03%)
  • Hydrology (38.73%)

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

James V. Ward mainly investigates Ecology, Floodplain, Hydrology, Habitat and Glacial period. His research on Ecology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as STREAMS. His work deals with themes such as Drainage basin, Spatial ecology, Landscape ecology, Spatial heterogeneity and Large woody debris, which intersect with Floodplain.

His study in the field of Surface water, Water level and Sinuosity is also linked to topics like Period. His Habitat study incorporates themes from Biological dispersal and Genetic structure. His Glacial period study combines topics in areas such as Glacier and Seasonality.

Between 2000 and 2008, his most popular works were:

  • Riverine landscape diversity (807 citations)
  • Riparian vegetation and island formation along the gravel‐bed Fiume Tagliamento, Italy (342 citations)
  • Understanding natural patterns and processes in river corridors as the basis for effective river restoration (275 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Habitat

His scientific interests lie mostly in Floodplain, Ecology, Hydrology, River ecosystem and Habitat. His studies in Floodplain integrate themes in fields like Particulates and Snowmelt. His Ecology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as STREAMS.

His Hydrology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sediment and Sea level. His study brings together the fields of Tailwater and River ecosystem. Biodiversity, Fauna and Aquatic ecosystem is closely connected to Ecosystem in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Habitat.
