Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Xylem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Xylem, Botany, Hydraulic conductivity, Water transport and Cavitation. The concepts of his Xylem study are interwoven with issues in Ecology and Agronomy. His work on Climate change as part of general Ecology study is frequently connected to Increased stature and Basic knowledge, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Tracheid, Stomatal conductance, Water stress and Hydraulic conductance study in the realm of Botany interacts with subjects such as Embolism. The study incorporates disciplines such as Horticulture and Transpiration in addition to Hydraulic conductivity. His Cavitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Photosynthesis and Animal science.

His most cited work include:

  • Mechanisms of plant survival and mortality during drought: why do some plants survive while others succumb to drought? (2316 citations)
  • Global convergence in the vulnerability of forests to drought (1256 citations)
  • Vulnerability of Xylem to Cavitation and Embolism (1195 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Xylem, Botany, Water transport, Ecology and Cavitation. His Xylem research incorporates themes from Hydraulic conductivity and Transpiration. John S. Sperry has included themes like Conductance and Pressure gradient in his Hydraulic conductivity study.

His research on Botany often connects related topics like Composite material. His Ecology research focuses on subjects like Hydraulics, which are linked to Hydrology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Photosynthesis, Soil science and Porosity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Xylem (64.88%)
  • Botany (55.36%)
  • Water transport (30.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • Ecology (27.38%)
  • Xylem (64.88%)
  • Climate change (8.93%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Xylem, Climate change, Transpiration and Atmospheric sciences. His study in the field of Ecosystem, Forest ecology and Hydraulic conductivity is also linked to topics like Water transport. His research in Xylem intersects with topics in Canopy, Woody plant and Growing season.

His research integrates issues of Abundance, Carbon cycle, Vegetation and Biome in his study of Climate change. Within one scientific family, John S. Sperry focuses on topics pertaining to Water potential under Transpiration, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Tree species, Tropical trees, Leaf phenology and Abscission. His research on Atmospheric sciences also deals with topics like

  • Vapour Pressure Deficit which is related to area like Humidity and Terrestrial ecosystem,
  • Photosynthesis which is related to area like Cavitation.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • A multi-species synthesis of physiological mechanisms in drought-induced tree mortality (351 citations)
  • Weak tradeoff between xylem safety and xylem-specific hydraulic efficiency across the world's woody plant species (269 citations)
  • Drivers and Mechanisms of Tree Mortality in Moist Tropical Forests (152 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Thermodynamics

John S. Sperry mainly investigates Ecology, Xylem, Transpiration, Climate change and Hydraulic conductivity. His studies in Ecology integrate themes in fields like Specific leaf area, Environmental resource management and Current. His Xylem studies intersect with other subjects such as Context and Water transport.

His Transpiration study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Tropical trees, Atmospheric sciences and Water potential. The Climate change study combines topics in areas such as Abundance and Biome. John S. Sperry has researched Hydraulic conductivity in several fields, including Hydraulic efficiency and Woody plant.
