Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Kris Verheyen mainly investigates Ecology, Biodiversity, Species richness, Ecosystem and Forest management. Much of his study explores Ecology relationship to Biological dispersal. He has researched Biodiversity in several fields, including Spatial ecology, Species diversity, Environmental resource management and Ecosystem services.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Herbivore and Resistance in addition to Ecosystem. He interconnects High forest, Temperate rainforest, Deciduous and Understory in the investigation of issues within Forest management. His Plant community research incorporates elements of Temperate forest, Temperate deciduous forest, Biomass and Forest floor.

His most cited work include:

  • Extinction debt of forest plants persists for more than a century following habitat fragmentation. (356 citations)
  • Microclimate moderates plant responses to macroclimate warming (328 citations)
  • Global meta-analysis reveals no net change in local-scale plant biodiversity over time (319 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Biodiversity, Agronomy, Species richness and Understory. His Plant community, Vegetation, Ecosystem, Habitat and Forest ecology investigations are all subjects of Ecology research. His research investigates the connection between Biodiversity and topics such as Forest management that intersect with problems in Deciduous.

His Agronomy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Beech, Fagus sylvatica, Soil water, Topsoil and Nutrient. His study ties his expertise on Species diversity together with the subject of Species richness. The various areas that he examines in his Understory study include Temperate forest, Temperate deciduous forest, Temperate rainforest and Forest floor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (49.14%)
  • Biodiversity (17.37%)
  • Agronomy (14.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Ecology (49.14%)
  • Understory (12.52%)
  • Biodiversity (17.37%)

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

Kris Verheyen mainly focuses on Ecology, Understory, Biodiversity, Temperate forest and Species richness. Kris Verheyen combines Ecology and Context in his studies. Kris Verheyen interconnects Forest management, Plant community, Temperate deciduous forest and Temperate rainforest in the investigation of issues within Understory.

His Biodiversity study combines topics in areas such as Monoculture, Resistance, Biome and Ecosystem services. His Temperate forest research includes themes of Fagus sylvatica and Environmental change. His Species richness research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Herbivore, Soil test, Vegetation and Species diversity.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Forest microclimate dynamics drive plant responses to warming (61 citations)
  • Replacements of small- by large-ranged species scale up to diversity loss in Europe’s temperate forest biome (19 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Biodiversity, Understory, Temperate forest and Species richness. His work on Ecology deals in particular with Plant community, Climate change, Temperate climate, Landscape ecology and Disturbance. His study on Habitat fragmentation is often connected to Data integration as part of broader study in Biodiversity.

His studies deal with areas such as Forest management and Temperate deciduous forest as well as Understory. Within one scientific family, Kris Verheyen focuses on topics pertaining to Environmental change under Temperate forest, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Phenotypic plasticity and Intraspecific competition. His Species richness research incorporates elements of Abundance and Vegetation.
