Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Ecology, Ecosystem, Carbon cycle, Photosynthesis and Biodiversity are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nitrogen fixation and Specific leaf area in addition to Ecology. His research integrates issues of Plant community and Similarity in his study of Ecosystem.

His work in the fields of Photosynthesis, such as Photosynthetic capacity, overlaps with other areas such as Spectrum and Plane. The Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Ecology, Conservation biology and Environmental resource management. His work carried out in the field of Vegetation brings together such families of science as Range, Functional ecology and Database.

His most cited work include:

  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)
  • Global effects of land use on local terrestrial biodiversity (1401 citations)
  • The global spectrum of plant form and function (972 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Specific leaf area and Vegetation. Plant community, Climate change, Species richness, Biome and Plant traits are the core of his Ecology study. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Litter and Evergreen.

In general Biodiversity study, his work on Global biodiversity often relates to the realm of Phylogenetic diversity, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Specific leaf area research includes themes of Nutrient, Agronomy and Woody plant. His research on Vegetation frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Range.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (48.46%)
  • Ecosystem (23.35%)
  • Biodiversity (15.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (48.46%)
  • Ecosystem (23.35%)
  • Biodiversity (15.86%)

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

Jens Kattge focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Plant community and Specific leaf area. All of his Ecology and Species richness, Tundra, Climate change, Macroecology and Habitat investigations are sub-components of the entire Ecology study. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Woody plant and Vegetation.

The Global biodiversity research Jens Kattge does as part of his general Biodiversity study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Phylogenetic diversity, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Plant community study incorporates themes from Grassland, Physical geography, Biome, Community and Abiotic component. The concepts of his Specific leaf area study are interwoven with issues in Taxon, Remote sensing and Agronomy.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Plant functional trait change across a warming tundra biome (185 citations)
  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Global trait–environment relationships of plant communities (143 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Statistics

Ecology, Plant community, Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Specific leaf area are his primary areas of study. Ecology is closely attributed to Photosynthetic capacity in his research. His Plant community study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Abiotic component, Climate change, Physical geography and Biome.

His Biodiversity research incorporates elements of Ecology, Life history theory, Species richness, Data integration and Representativeness heuristic. His primary area of study in Ecosystem is in the field of Terrestrial ecosystem. The Specific leaf area study combines topics in areas such as Spatial ecology and Data stream mining.
