Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

Lee E. Frelich mainly investigates Ecology, Taiga, Earthworm, Disturbance and Canopy. His study in Ecological succession, Introduced species, Odocoileus, Plant community and Understory is carried out as part of his Ecology studies. His research integrates issues of Species richness and Species diversity in his study of Plant community.

His Taiga research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Agroforestry and White-cedar. His Disturbance research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Old-growth forest and Abiotic component. Lee E. Frelich works mostly in the field of Canopy, limiting it down to topics relating to Hardwood and, in certain cases, Chronology, as a part of the same area of interest.

His most cited work include:

  • Changing disturbance regimes, ecological memory, and forest resilience (459 citations)
  • A methodology for estimating canopy disturbance frequency and intensity in dense temperate forests (378 citations)
  • Natural Disturbance Regimes in Hemlock-Hardwood Forests of the Upper Great Lakes Region (368 citations)

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

Lee E. Frelich spends much of his time researching Ecology, Taiga, Ecosystem, Understory and Earthworm. Temperate climate, Plant community, Disturbance, Boreal and Temperate forest are among the areas of Ecology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His studies deal with areas such as Spatial ecology, Temperate rainforest, Aporrectodea and Biome as well as Taiga.

Lee E. Frelich combines subjects such as Land use, Abiotic component and Invasive species with his study of Ecosystem. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Understory, Yellow birch and Aceraceae is strongly linked to Old-growth forest. Lee E. Frelich focuses mostly in the field of Earthworm, narrowing it down to matters related to Forest floor and, in some cases, Introduced species.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (71.43%)
  • Taiga (19.55%)
  • Ecosystem (17.29%)

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

  • Ecology (71.43%)
  • Forest ecology (12.03%)
  • Ecosystem (17.29%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Forest ecology, Ecosystem, Disturbance and Biome. Taiga, Temperate climate, Boreal, Climate change and Earthworm are the subjects of his Ecology studies. His studies in Temperate climate integrate themes in fields like Temperate rainforest and Understory.

His research in Forest ecology intersects with topics in Old-growth forest, Forestry and Hemiboreal. As part of one scientific family, Lee E. Frelich deals mainly with the area of Ecosystem, narrowing it down to issues related to the Land use, and often Global change. Lee E. Frelich interconnects Forest management, Natural, Functional ecology and Environmental resource management in the investigation of issues within Disturbance.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • How much does climate change threaten European forest tree species distributions (186 citations)
  • Patterns and Drivers of Recent Disturbances Across the Temperate Forest Biome (73 citations)
  • The unseen invaders: introduced earthworms as drivers of change in plant communities in North American forests (a meta-analysis) (66 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Biodiversity

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Land use, Climate change, Plant community and Ecosystem. His study in Ecology focuses on Temperate climate, Forest management, Understory, Habitat and Taiga. Lee E. Frelich has researched Understory in several fields, including Woodland, Temperate rainforest and Grassland.

His Plant community study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecosystem engineer, Introduced species, Native plant, Biomass and Species richness. He studied Ecosystem and Hemiboreal that intersect with Dominance. Lee E. Frelich usually deals with Forest ecology and limits it to topics linked to Natural and Disturbance.
