Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Carbon dioxide

Matthias Saurer focuses on Dendrochronology, Atmospheric sciences, Growing season, Precipitation and Ecology. Matthias Saurer has included themes like Soil water, Picea abies, Climatology and Mediterranean climate in his Dendrochronology study. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hydrology, Climate change and Isotopes of carbon.

His Climate change research includes elements of Carbon dioxide, Water-use efficiency and Stomatal conductance. His work carried out in the field of Precipitation brings together such families of science as Beech, Fagus sylvatica and Relative humidity. While the research belongs to areas of Ecology, Matthias Saurer spends his time largely on the problem of δ13C, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Seasonality, Organic matter and Isotope analysis.

His most cited work include:

  • Linking stable oxygen and carbon isotopes with stomatal conductance and photosynthetic capacity: a conceptual model. (425 citations)
  • Carbon isotope discrimination indicates improving water-use efficiency of trees in northern Eurasia over the last 100 years (293 citations)
  • Water-use efficiency and transpiration across European forests during the Anthropocene (222 citations)

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

Matthias Saurer mostly deals with Dendrochronology, Botany, Precipitation, Atmospheric sciences and δ18O. He has researched Dendrochronology in several fields, including Larch, Ecology, Growing season, δ13C and Physical geography. His research investigates the connection between Botany and topics such as Horticulture that intersect with issues in Phloem.

In his work, Photosynthesis and Isotope analysis is strongly intertwined with Isotopes of carbon, which is a subfield of Atmospheric sciences. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the δ18O, concentrating on Isotope fractionation and frequently concerns with Xylem. His studies deal with areas such as Water-use efficiency and Transpiration as well as Stomatal conductance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Dendrochronology (43.37%)
  • Botany (25.00%)
  • Precipitation (23.47%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Dendrochronology (43.37%)
  • Physical geography (16.33%)
  • δ13C (23.98%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Dendrochronology, Physical geography, δ13C, Precipitation and δ18O. His studies in Dendrochronology integrate themes in fields like Ecology, Ecosystem and Stomatal conductance. His Physical geography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sunshine duration, Growing season, Permafrost, Forest ecology and Quercus spp.

Matthias Saurer combines subjects such as Larch, National park, Climate change and Pinus mugo with his study of δ13C. His research integrates issues of Mediterranean climate, Vapour Pressure Deficit and Atmospheric sciences in his study of Precipitation. His Atmospheric sciences study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Temperate climate and Altitude.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Drought induced tree mortality - a tree-ring isotope based conceptual model to assess mechanisms and predispositions. (31 citations)
  • The effect of 18O‐labelled water vapour on the oxygen isotope ratio of water and assimilates in plants at high humidity (17 citations)
  • The effect of 18O‐labelled water vapour on the oxygen isotope ratio of water and assimilates in plants at high humidity (17 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Botany

Matthias Saurer mainly investigates Dendrochronology, Ecology, Climate change, Xylem and Tree. His Dendrochronology research incorporates elements of Sunshine duration, Larch, Physical geography and Growing season. His study on Ecosystem services, Woody plant and Invasive species is often connected to Riparian forest and Water flow as part of broader study in Ecology.

His work in Climate change addresses subjects such as Mediterranean climate, which are connected to disciplines such as Hydraulic conductivity, Stomatal conductance, Precipitation and Competition. Botany and Horticulture are the main topics of his Xylem study. His research investigates the connection between Pinus and topics such as Isotopes of carbon that intersect with problems in Beech, Atmospheric sciences, Canopy, Picea abies and Temperate climate.
