Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Biodiversity, Rainforest, Species richness and Ecosystem. In his study, Jürgen Homeier carries out multidisciplinary Ecology and Phylogenetic nomenclature research. His studies in Biodiversity integrate themes in fields like Ordination, Lepidoptera genitalia, Ennominae, Habitat and Tropical climate.

In his research, Biomass, Endemism and Biota is intimately related to Tropics, which falls under the overarching field of Rainforest. The study incorporates disciplines such as Plant community, Abundance and Species diversity in addition to Species richness. His research integrates issues of Nutrient and Vegetation in his study of Ecosystem.

His most cited work include:

  • Mapping tree density at a global scale (330 citations)
  • An estimate of the number of tropical tree species (230 citations)
  • Global warming, elevational ranges and the vulnerability of tropical biota (159 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Ecosystem, Biomass, Rainforest and Botany. Ecology is frequently linked to Altitude in his study. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Plant community, Rare species and Agroforestry.

His Biomass study also includes

  • Forest dynamics, Forest ecology, Dry season, Floodplain and Transect most often made with reference to Basal area,
  • Temperate climate and Physical geography most often made with reference to Tropics. His Rainforest research incorporates elements of Reforestation, Taxon, Atmospheric sciences, Seasonality and Vegetation. His work on Melastomataceae and Alchornea as part of general Botany research is often related to Hartig net and Ectomycorrhiza, thus linking different fields of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (56.86%)
  • Ecosystem (25.49%)
  • Biomass (20.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Ecology (56.86%)
  • Species richness (15.69%)
  • Ecosystem (25.49%)

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

Jürgen Homeier spends much of his time researching Ecology, Species richness, Ecosystem, Trait and Biomass. His work on Ecology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Elevation. Jürgen Homeier has researched Species richness in several fields, including Plant community, Abundance, Community and Nutrient.

His work deals with themes such as Physical geography, Biome and Macroecology, which intersect with Abundance. His Biomass research integrates issues from Rainforest, Climate change, Specific leaf area and Atmospheric sciences. His Specific leaf area research includes themes of Productivity, Primary production, Canopy, Vegetation and Remote sensing.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • sPlot – A new tool for global vegetation analyses (72 citations)
  • SoilTemp: A global database of near-surface temperature (25 citations)
  • Accounting for multiple ecosystem services in a simulation of land-use decisions: Does it reduce tropical deforestation? (13 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Jürgen Homeier mostly deals with Vegetation, Species richness, Biome, Plant community and Abundance. His work carried out in the field of Vegetation brings together such families of science as Global warming, Global and Planetary Change and Climate change. His Species richness study improves the overall literature in Ecology.

Jürgen Homeier has included themes like Macroecology, Ecoinformatics, Physical geography, Radiative forcing and Microclimate in his Biome study. Borrowing concepts from Ecosystem, he weaves in ideas under Trait. Jürgen Homeier combines subjects such as Productivity, Biomass, Atmospheric sciences and Canopy with his study of Ecosystem.
