Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Fire regime, Chaparral, Vegetation and Ecosystem. The Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Germination and Botany. Jon E. Keeley has included themes like Shrubland, Serotiny, Fire ecology and Environmental protection in his Fire regime study.

His studies in Vegetation integrate themes in fields like Forest management, Mediterranean climate, Ecology and Prescribed burn. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Dominance, Boreal, Coarse woody debris and Environmental resource management. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate change and Earth system science.

His most cited work include:

  • Fire in the Earth System (1654 citations)
  • Fire in the Earth System (1654 citations)
  • Fire as a global 'herbivore': the ecology and evolution of flammable ecosystems. (1397 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Chaparral, Fire regime, Vegetation and Shrubland. Ecology and Botany are frequently intertwined in his study. Jon E. Keeley combines subjects such as Shrub, Agroforestry, Forestry and Herbaceous plant with his study of Chaparral.

In his work, Climatology is strongly intertwined with Climate change, which is a subfield of Fire regime. His Shrubland study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Vegetation type, Ecological succession, Escape fire, Grassland and Plant community. His Biome study in the realm of Ecosystem connects with subjects such as Natural.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (76.94%)
  • Chaparral (46.11%)
  • Fire regime (42.90%)

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

  • Ecology (76.94%)
  • Chaparral (46.11%)
  • Ecosystem (26.27%)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Chaparral, Ecosystem, Vegetation and Fire regime. Ecology is frequently linked to Seeding in his study. He combines subjects such as Shrub, Shrubland, Habitat, Herbaceous plant and Grassland with his study of Chaparral.

The various areas that Jon E. Keeley examines in his Ecosystem study include Bromus, Flammable liquid, Seedling and Ecoregion. His Vegetation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Disturbance, Biome and Environmental protection. The Fire regime study combines topics in areas such as Boreal, Climate change, Metapopulation, Environmental resource management and Survivorship curve.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evolutionary ecology of resprouting and seeding in fire‐prone ecosystems (215 citations)
  • Evolutionary ecology of resprouting and seeding in fire‐prone ecosystems (215 citations)
  • Mediterranean Biomes: Evolution of Their Vegetation, Floras, and Climate (108 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Jon E. Keeley mostly deals with Ecology, Ecosystem, Fire regime, Climate change and Vegetation. His work on Disturbance, Mediterranean climate and Fire ecology as part of general Ecology study is frequently linked to Scale, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Ecosystem research includes themes of Population density and Flammable liquid.

His Fire regime research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Agroforestry, Soil temperature, Resistance and Environmental resource management. His Climate change research also works with subjects such as

  • Climatology, which have a strong connection to Temporal scales, Spatial variability, Fire weather and Explained variation,
  • Precipitation which intersects with area such as Foothills, Grassland and Chaparral. His research in Vegetation intersects with topics in Scale, Biome and Environmental protection.
