Mark Westoby mainly focuses on Ecology, Botany, Vegetation, Specific leaf area and Agronomy. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Biological dispersal and Ecology. In his study, Growth rate and Water-use efficiency is strongly linked to Horticulture, which falls under the umbrella field of Botany.
The Vegetation study combines topics in areas such as Statistics, Plant growth and Functional ecology. His studies in Specific leaf area integrate themes in fields like Perennial plant, Quadrant and Forest ecology. In the field of Agronomy, his study on Seedling overlaps with subjects such as Production.
His main research concerns Ecology, Botany, Agronomy, Vegetation and Range. His Ecology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Biological dispersal. His Botany study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Horticulture.
Mark Westoby studied Agronomy and Nutrient that intersect with Soil water. His Vegetation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Leaf size and Specific leaf area. The various areas that Mark Westoby examines in his Seedling study include Relative growth rate and Germination.
Mark Westoby mainly investigates Ecology, Botany, Xylem, Photosynthesis and Agronomy. His Ecology study is mostly concerned with Arid, Ecosystem, Competition, Range and Ecology. His Arid research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Climate change and Vegetation.
His work deals with themes such as Plant community, Specific leaf area and Niche, which intersect with Competition. His Xylem research includes themes of Hydraulic conductivity, Leaf size, Leaf water and Transpiration. The study of Photosynthesis is intertwined with the study of Nutrient in a number of ways.
Mark Westoby spends much of his time researching Ecology, Botany, Xylem, Photosynthesis and Arid. The concepts of his Ecology study are interwoven with issues in Leaf size and Specific leaf area. Mark Westoby has researched Botany in several fields, including Biological system and Ecosystem ecology.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hydraulic conductivity, Range and Evolutionary ecology. Mark Westoby has included themes like Dry weight, Plane, Cell wall and Nutrient in his Photosynthesis study. His Arid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Vegetation, Ecological succession, Seral community and Transpiration.
