Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Genus

Ecology, Botany, Allometry, Scaling and Biomass are his primary areas of study. His work on Ecology, Algae, Taxon and Species diversity is typically connected to Form and function as part of general Ecology study, connecting several disciplines of science. His work deals with themes such as Geometry and Horticulture, which intersect with Botany.

Karl J. Niklas has included themes like Organism, Similarity, Macroecology and Plant evolution in his Allometry study. His research integrates issues of Statistics, Regression, Tree and Agronomy in his study of Scaling. He works mostly in the field of Biomass, limiting it down to topics relating to Ecosystem and, in certain cases, Plant community, as a part of the same area of interest.

His most cited work include:

  • Biomass allocation to leaves, stems and roots: meta‐analyses of interspecific variation and environmental control (1293 citations)
  • Plant Biomechanics: An Engineering Approach to Plant Form and Function (927 citations)
  • Plant Allometry: The Scaling of Form and Process (770 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Botany, Ecology, Allometry, Scaling and Biomass. His Horticulture research extends to Botany, which is thematically connected. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Multicellular organism and Plant evolution.

Karl J. Niklas interconnects Biomass partitioning and Interspecific competition in the investigation of issues within Allometry. His Scaling study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Statistics. The concepts of his Biomass study are interwoven with issues in Herbaceous plant and Ecosystem.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (46.92%)
  • Ecology (25.83%)
  • Allometry (17.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Botany (46.92%)
  • General interest (2.37%)
  • Ecology (25.83%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Botany, General interest, Ecology, Scaling and Agronomy. Many of his studies on Botany involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Evolutionary developmental biology. Many of his studies on Ecology apply to Plant physiology as well.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Quotient, Biomass, Lamina, Horticulture and Water content in addition to Scaling. He combines subjects such as Bamboo, Allometry and Interception with his study of Horticulture. In his study, Nutrient, Nitrogen, Terrestrial ecosystem, Geometric mean and Ecosystem is inextricably linked to Phosphorus, which falls within the broad field of Agronomy.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global leaf nitrogen and phosphorus stoichiometry and their scaling exponent (37 citations)
  • The evolution of hydrophobic cell wall biopolymers: from algae to angiosperms (30 citations)
  • The evolutionary origins of cell type diversification and the role of intrinsically disordered proteins. (26 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Genus

Karl J. Niklas focuses on Scaling, Botany, Horticulture, Agronomy and Bamboo. The Scaling study which covers Quotient that intersects with Value. He performs integrative study on Botany and Light intensity.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Lamina, Plant species and Allometry. His research investigates the connection between Allometry and topics such as Range that intersect with issues in Interception. In Agronomy, Karl J. Niklas works on issues like Phosphorus, which are connected to Evapotranspiration, Forb, Geometric mean and Terrestrial plant.
