Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Botany, Woody plant, Allometry and Pollination. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Resprouter, Biological dispersal and Seedling. His research in Botany tackles topics such as Dominance which are related to areas like Cambium, Tropical savanna climate, Evergreen, Bark and Agronomy.

His Woody plant study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Shrub, Ecosystem and Life history. His biological study deals with issues like Leaf size, which deal with fields such as Zoology, Inflorescence, Bruniaceae and Leucadendron. His Pollinator study in the realm of Pollination interacts with subjects such as Context.

His most cited work include:

  • The worldwide leaf economics spectrum (4498 citations)
  • Ecology of sprouting in woody plants: the persistence niche. (1063 citations)
  • Resprouting as a key functional trait: how buds, protection and resources drive persistence after fire (407 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Botany, Pollination, Proteaceae and Pollinator. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cape and Biological dispersal, Seed dispersal. His study focuses on the intersection of Biological dispersal and fields such as Germination with connections in the field of Seedling.

His Botany study focuses mostly on Pollen, Nectar, Herbivore, Acacia and Inflorescence. His Pollination research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Rodent and Ericaceae. His Proteaceae study incorporates themes from Serotiny, Horticulture and Interspecific competition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (61.57%)
  • Botany (37.50%)
  • Pollination (17.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Ecology (61.57%)
  • Botany (37.50%)
  • Pollination (17.13%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Botany, Pollination, Proteaceae and Pollinator. Ecology connects with themes related to Seed dispersal in his study. In his work, Habitat, Natural and Trophic level is strongly intertwined with Cape, which is a subfield of Botany.

His study in Pollination is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Inflorescence, Resource and Nectar. His Proteaceae research also works with subjects such as

  • Zoology and related Promerops cafer, Cinnyris and Sugarbird,
  • Horticulture which connect with Nutrient, Focal species, Limiting nutrient and Canopy. Jeremy J. Midgley combines subjects such as Crop, Ecosystem services, Deciduous, Reproductive success and Sunbird with his study of Pollinator.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A synthesis of postfire recovery traits of woody plants in Australian ecosystems. (75 citations)
  • Do pollinator distributions underlie the evolution of pollination ecotypes in the Cape shrub Erica plukenetii (73 citations)
  • Experimental evidence for heat plume-induced cavitation and xylem deformation as a mechanism of rapid post-fire tree mortality. (32 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Botany, Pollination, Proteaceae and Pollinator. He is interested in Rainforest, which is a branch of Ecology. His work in the fields of Pollen, Resprouter and Epicormic shoot overlaps with other areas such as Mathematics.

In his study, Protea is inextricably linked to Nectar, which falls within the broad field of Pollination. His work on Leucadendron as part of his general Proteaceae study is frequently connected to Ramification, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. The concepts of his Pollinator study are interwoven with issues in Resource, Habitat, Ecosystem services, Agriculture and Climate change.
