Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Lawren Sack mainly investigates Ecology, Botany, Xylem, Drought tolerance and Agronomy. His research in the fields of Ecosystem, Range, Biodiversity and Climate change overlaps with other disciplines such as Trait. His work on Shade tolerance, Petiole and Leaf size as part of general Botany study is frequently linked to Water transport, bridging the gap between disciplines.

The various areas that he examines in his Xylem study include Tropical climate and Rainforest. His Drought tolerance research incorporates elements of Shrub, Ilex aquifolium, Deciduous, Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests and Evergreen. His Agronomy research integrates issues from Viburnum tinus and Water potential.

His most cited work include:

  • New handbook for standardised measurement of plant functional traits worldwide (1676 citations)
  • TRY - a global database of plant traits (1611 citations)
  • The ‘hydrology’ of leaves: co‐ordination of structure and function in temperate woody species (515 citations)

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

Lawren Sack mainly focuses on Botany, Ecology, Xylem, Drought tolerance and Ecosystem. While the research belongs to areas of Botany, Lawren Sack spends his time largely on the problem of Horticulture, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Transpiration. Borrowing concepts from Trait, Lawren Sack weaves in ideas under Ecology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Vascular bundle, Hydraulic conductivity and Petiole in addition to Xylem. As part of one scientific family, Lawren Sack deals mainly with the area of Drought tolerance, narrowing it down to issues related to the Turgor pressure, and often Water content. His study looks at the relationship between Ecosystem and topics such as Bryophyte, which overlap with Moss.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (44.39%)
  • Ecology (40.98%)
  • Xylem (22.93%)

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

  • Ecology (40.98%)
  • Agronomy (15.61%)
  • Trait (9.76%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Agronomy, Trait, Photosynthesis and Stomatal conductance. His Drought tolerance and Shoot study, which is part of a larger body of work in Agronomy, is frequently linked to Water transport and Vital rates, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Photosynthesis study is concerned with the field of Botany as a whole.

His research on Botany frequently links to adjacent areas such as Chloroplast. Lawren Sack interconnects Stomatal density, Xylem, Water content and Transpiration in the investigation of issues within Stomatal conductance. His studies deal with areas such as Vascular bundle and Ecophysiology as well as Xylem.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • Thresholds for leaf damage due to dehydration: declines of hydraulic function, stomatal conductance and cellular integrity precede those for photochemistry (35 citations)
  • Ecosystem Traits Linking Functional Traits to Macroecology. (31 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of investigation include Photosynthesis, Stomatal conductance, Ecosystem, Botany and Functional ecology. Lawren Sack focuses mostly in the field of Stomatal conductance, narrowing it down to matters related to Water content and, in some cases, Drought tolerance, Turgor pressure, Xylem and Photosystem II. His Ecosystem study improves the overall literature in Ecology.

His study in Field extends to Ecology with its themes. The Transpiration and Leaf mass research Lawren Sack does as part of his general Botany study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Humidity and Degree of unsaturation, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Functional ecology research includes themes of Representativeness heuristic and Shade tolerance.
