Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Marinus J. A. Werger mainly investigates Botany, Canopy, Ecology, Photosynthesis and Agronomy. His research in Botany intersects with topics in Biomass and Horticulture. His research investigates the link between Canopy and topics such as Herbaceous plant that cross with problems in Carbon cycle.

His work on Standing crop, Shrub and Vegetation as part of general Ecology study is frequently linked to Desert and East Asia, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. The Photosynthetic capacity research he does as part of his general Photosynthesis study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Oryza sativa, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His studies deal with areas such as Rainforest and Leaf weight as well as Agronomy.

His most cited work include:

  • Nitrogen use efficiency in instantaneous and daily photosynthesis of leaves in the canopy of a Solidago altissima stand (288 citations)
  • Patterns of light and nitrogen distribution in relation to whole canopy carbon gain in C3 and C4 mono- and dicotyledonous species. (226 citations)
  • Carbon cycling traits of plant species are linked with mycorrhizal strategy (218 citations)

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

Marinus J. A. Werger mostly deals with Ecology, Botany, Agronomy, Plant ecology and Biomass. Marinus J. A. Werger studied Ecology and Forestry that intersect with Alpine plant, Understory and Floristics. His study in Botany is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Nutrient and Horticulture.

His Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Soil water and Thigmomorphogenesis. His work investigates the relationship between Plant ecology and topics such as Biodiversity that intersect with problems in Plant community. His Canopy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Photosynthesis, Herbaceous plant, Carex acutiformis, Leaf area index and Interception.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (48.15%)
  • Botany (43.52%)
  • Agronomy (29.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2018)?

  • Ecology (48.15%)
  • Agronomy (29.63%)
  • Shrub (10.19%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Agronomy, Shrub, Botany and Species richness. Marinus J. A. Werger undertakes multidisciplinary studies into Ecology and East Asia in his work. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Thigmomorphogenesis, Nutrient and Life history theory.

Marinus J. A. Werger has included themes like Arid, Vital rates, Steppe and Photosynthesis in his Shrub study. His Botany study frequently involves adjacent topics like Seeding. His research on Species richness also deals with topics like

  • Abundance together with Grassland and Litter,
  • Competition which intersects with area such as Antennaria dioica, Graminoid, Forb, Herbaceous plant and Plant ecology.

Between 2008 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Author Correction: Identifying long-term stable refugia for relict plant species in East Asia. (178 citations)
  • Eurasian steppes : ecological problems and livelihoods in a changing world (51 citations)
  • Identifying long-term stable refugia for relict plant species in East Asia (43 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Botany, East Asia, Plant species and Germination. His study in Climate change, National park, Conservation status, Global warming and Biome is carried out as part of his studies in Ecology. His study on Botany is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Anatomy.

Throughout his East Asia studies, Marinus J. A. Werger incorporates elements of other sciences such as Term, Humid subtropical climate, Species richness, Environmental niche modelling and Abundance. His Germination study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Serotiny, Herbaceous plant, Plant reproductive morphology and Pollination.
