Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Maurizio Mencuccini spends much of his time researching Ecology, Transpiration, Botany, Scots pine and Xylem. His work in Ecosystem, Climate change, Vegetation, Plant ecology and Rainforest are all subfields of Ecology research. His work deals with themes such as Woody plant and Agronomy, which intersect with Transpiration.

His study in Horticulture extends to Botany with its themes. His Scots pine research includes elements of Life history, Canopy conductance and Meristem. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Xylem, concentrating on Hydraulic conductivity and intersecting with Stomatal conductance.

His most cited work include:

  • Global convergence in the vulnerability of forests to drought (1256 citations)
  • Improved allometric models to estimate the aboveground biomass of tropical trees (1013 citations)
  • The human footprint in the carbon cycle of temperate and boreal forests (817 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Botany, Agronomy, Xylem and Transpiration. His work on Ecology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Atmospheric sciences. In his work, Acer pseudoplatanus is strongly intertwined with Horticulture, which is a subfield of Botany.

His Agronomy research focuses on Canopy and how it connects with Eddy covariance. His Xylem study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hydraulic conductivity and Soil science. Much of his study explores Transpiration relationship to Hydrology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (37.89%)
  • Botany (25.00%)
  • Agronomy (22.66%)

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

  • Agronomy (22.66%)
  • Ecology (37.89%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (12.50%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Agronomy, Ecology, Atmospheric sciences, Canopy and Transpiration. His research in Agronomy intersects with topics in Hydraulic conductivity, Photosynthesis, Photosynthetic capacity and Tree species. His study in Atmospheric sciences is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ecosystem carbon, Eddy covariance, Ecosystem, Soil water and Evapotranspiration.

His Canopy research incorporates themes from Water content and Stomatal conductance. His Transpiration study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hydrology, Wetland, Avicennia marina and Forestry. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Woody plant, Biomass is strongly linked to Arid.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRY plant trait database : Enhanced coverage and open access (179 citations)
  • sPlot – A new tool for global vegetation analyses (72 citations)
  • Adjustments and coordination of hydraulic, leaf and stem traits along a water availability gradient. (57 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Botany
  • Ecosystem

Maurizio Mencuccini spends much of his time researching Agronomy, Xylem, Tree species, Trait and Vegetation. Maurizio Mencuccini is interested in Biomass, which is a field of Agronomy. His Xylem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Adaptation, Tropical rainforest, Water column and Transpiration.

His Tree species study combines topics in areas such as Coppicing, Agroforestry, Eucalyptus and Ecosystem. He has researched Vegetation in several fields, including Ecoinformatics, Species richness, Physical geography and Biome. His studies in Hydraulic conductivity integrate themes in fields like Diameter at breast height and Amazonian, Amazon rainforest.
