Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His main research concerns Ecology, Botany, Agronomy, Ecosystem and Nitrogen cycle. Kurt S. Pregitzer has researched Botany in several fields, including Carbon sequestration and Horticulture. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nutrient and Soil fertility in addition to Agronomy.

His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Salicaceae, Hardwood and Betulaceae. His Nitrogen cycle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Woody plant, Biogeochemical cycle and Mineralization. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental chemistry and Organic matter.

His most cited work include:

  • Forest response to elevated CO2 is conserved across a broad range of productivity. (803 citations)
  • Carbon cycling and storage in world forests: biome patterns related to forest age. (708 citations)
  • FINE ROOT ARCHITECTURE OF NINE NORTH AMERICAN TREES (658 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Botany, Ecology, Agronomy, Ecosystem and Soil water. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nutrient, Carbon dioxide, Nitrogen cycle and Horticulture. His research on Ecology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Cycling.

Kurt S. Pregitzer combines subjects such as Aceraceae, Canopy and Woody plant with his study of Agronomy. His Ecosystem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil organic matter, Hardwood and Soil biology. His Soil water research incorporates themes from Environmental chemistry, Hydrology and Respiration.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (45.00%)
  • Ecology (32.69%)
  • Agronomy (31.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2019)?

  • Botany (45.00%)
  • Ecosystem (25.00%)
  • Ecology (32.69%)

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

Kurt S. Pregitzer focuses on Botany, Ecosystem, Ecology, Agronomy and Plant litter. Kurt S. Pregitzer has included themes like Abundance and Biodiversity in his Botany study. His study in the field of Forest ecology also crosses realms of Ectosymbiosis.

His research integrates issues of Carbon sequestration, Soil carbon and Woody plant in his study of Agronomy. Kurt S. Pregitzer combines subjects such as Sugar, Deposition, Litter and Cycling with his study of Plant litter. His study in Soil respiration is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Carbon cycle, Shade tolerance and Growing season.

Between 2009 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Redefining fine roots improves understanding of below-ground contributions to terrestrial biosphere processes (478 citations)
  • Ephemeral root modules in Fraxinus mandshurica (142 citations)
  • Simulated atmospheric N deposition alters fungal community composition and suppresses ligninolytic gene expression in a northern hardwood forest. (130 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of study are Botany, Ecosystem, Ecology, Woody plant and Cycling. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ephemeral key and Carbon dioxide in addition to Botany. His Forest ecology and Plant litter study in the realm of Ecosystem interacts with subjects such as Fungal genetics and Fungal protein.

His work on Ecology deals in particular with Biogeochemical cycle, Primary production and Global warming. His Woody plant research incorporates themes from Photosynthesis, Water-use efficiency, Stomatal conductance, Isotopes of carbon and δ13C. The various areas that Kurt S. Pregitzer examines in his Cycling study include Organic matter, Soil carbon, Humus, Decomposition and Environmental chemistry.
