Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Klement Tockner mainly investigates Ecology, Floodplain, Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Hydrology. His research in Habitat, River ecosystem, Riparian zone, Wetland and Spatial heterogeneity are components of Ecology. His Floodplain study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Species richness, Landscape ecology, Flood myth and Fluvial.

His research integrates issues of Endangered species, Ecological light pollution, Environmental impact assessment, Pollution and Environmental monitoring in his study of Biodiversity. His work in the fields of Ecosystem, such as Terrestrial ecosystem, overlaps with other areas such as Geographic Mapping. His Hydrology research includes themes of Vegetation and Large woody debris.

His most cited work include:

  • Riverine flood plains: present state and future trends (1323 citations)
  • Biodiversity of floodplain river ecosystems: ecotones and connectivity1 (858 citations)
  • A global boom in hydropower dam construction (827 citations)

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

Klement Tockner mainly focuses on Ecology, Hydrology, Floodplain, Biodiversity and Ecosystem. His Ecology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as STREAMS. His work carried out in the field of Hydrology brings together such families of science as Denitrification, Mediterranean climate, Aquatic ecosystem and Nutrient.

His studies in Floodplain integrate themes in fields like Organic matter, River ecosystem, Sediment, Riparian forest and Spatial heterogeneity. The Biodiversity study which covers Environmental resource management that intersects with Sustainability. Many of his research projects under Ecosystem are closely connected to Spatial variability with Spatial variability, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (87.62%)
  • Hydrology (45.82%)
  • Floodplain (40.25%)

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

  • Biodiversity (39.94%)
  • Ecology (87.62%)
  • Threatened species (11.15%)

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

Klement Tockner mostly deals with Biodiversity, Ecology, Threatened species, Habitat and Megafauna. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Range, Ecosystem, Freshwater ecosystem, Ecosystem services and Species richness. His biological study deals with issues like Benthic zone, which deal with fields such as Floodplain, Abiotic component, Species sorting, Common spatial pattern and Community structure.

Klement Tockner has included themes like Hydrology and STREAMS in his Ecology study. The Threatened species study combines topics in areas such as Endangered species and Environmental planning. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biota, Biological dispersal and Biogeochemical cycle in addition to Habitat.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Emerging threats and persistent conservation challenges for freshwater biodiversity (407 citations)
  • Mapping the world’s free-flowing rivers (347 citations)
  • Mapping the world’s free-flowing rivers (347 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Law

His primary areas of study are Biodiversity, Ecology, Megafauna, Freshwater ecosystem and Threatened species. His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Land use and Ecosystem services. Klement Tockner studies Ecology, namely Ecosystem.

Klement Tockner has researched Ecosystem in several fields, including Water Movements and Environmental resource management. His research integrates issues of Habitat and Sustainable development in his study of Freshwater ecosystem. The various areas that Klement Tockner examines in his Threatened species study include Habitat destruction and Range.
