Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Habitat

Karsten Wesche mostly deals with Ecology, Vegetation, Plant community, Ecosystem and Steppe. As part of one scientific family, Karsten Wesche deals mainly with the area of Ecology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Agronomy, and often Soil carbon. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Species richness and Grassland.

He interconnects Indicator value and Biome in the investigation of issues within Plant community. His research integrates issues of Rangeland management, Resource, Niche differentiation and Scale in his study of Ecosystem. His work deals with themes such as Vegetative reproduction, Soil fertility, Sexual reproduction, Biomass and Juniper, which intersect with Steppe.

His most cited work include:

  • Global trait–environment relationships of plant communities (143 citations)
  • Global trait–environment relationships of plant communities (143 citations)
  • Fifty years of change in Central European grassland vegetation: Large losses in species richness and animal-pollinated plants (136 citations)

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

His main research concerns Ecology, Vegetation, Plant community, Steppe and Grazing. The study incorporates disciplines such as Genetic structure and Genetic diversity in addition to Ecology. His Detrended correspondence analysis study in the realm of Vegetation connects with subjects such as Context.

His study in Plant community is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ordination, Abundance, Relative species abundance and Indicator species. His Steppe study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Range, Overgrazing, Stipa, Biome and Arid. His Grazing research includes themes of Rangeland, Ecosystem, Transect and Abiotic component.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (94.51%)
  • Vegetation (29.67%)
  • Plant community (28.02%)

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

  • Ecology (94.51%)
  • Steppe (28.02%)
  • Rangeland (22.53%)

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

Karsten Wesche focuses on Ecology, Steppe, Rangeland, Plant community and Species richness. Karsten Wesche has included themes like Plateau and Genetic diversity in his Ecology study. His research in Steppe intersects with topics in Flora, Overgrazing, Ecosystem and Near-threatened species, Threatened species.

His Rangeland research integrates issues from Biomass, Intraspecific competition and Grazing. Plant community is a subfield of Vegetation that Karsten Wesche investigates. His research investigates the connection between Abundance and topics such as Ecoinformatics that intersect with problems in Biome.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • sPlot – A new tool for global vegetation analyses (72 citations)
  • sPlot – A new tool for global vegetation analyses (72 citations)
  • The Kobresia pygmaea ecosystem of the Tibetan highlands – Origin, functioning and degradation of the world's largest pastoral alpine ecosystem: Kobresia pastures of Tibet (57 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Habitat
  • Ecosystem

Karsten Wesche spends much of his time researching Ecology, Plant community, Species richness, Habitat and Environmental gradient. His study in Ecology focuses on Growing season, Nutrient cycle, Carex, Pasture and Kobresia. His work carried out in the field of Plant community brings together such families of science as Abundance, Biodiversity, Climate change and Ecosystem services.

His Abundance research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Macroecology, Ecoinformatics, Vegetation, Biome and Physical geography. His studies in Species richness integrate themes in fields like Edaphic, Indicator value, Global biodiversity, Grassland and Ecological stability. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Environmental gradient, Indicator species, Transect, Species diversity and Grazing is strongly linked to Rangeland.
