Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Xylem

Melvin T. Tyree focuses on Xylem, Botany, Hydraulic conductivity, Ecology and Cavitation. His Xylem research includes themes of Water stress, Woody plant, Embolism and Pressure difference. The concepts of his Botany study are interwoven with issues in Biophysics, Pressure gradient and Horticulture.

His Hydraulic conductivity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Shoot, Petiole and Tracheid. His Ecosystem, Riparian zone and Tree species study in the realm of Ecology interacts with subjects such as Structure and function. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Ecosystem, focusing on Plant community and, on occasion, Species distribution.

His most cited work include:

  • The hydraulic architecture of trees and other woody plants (1133 citations)
  • The Measurement of the Turgor Pressure and the Water Relations of Plants by the Pressure-bomb Technique (835 citations)
  • A method for measuring hydraulic conductivity and embolism in xylem (824 citations)

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

Botany, Xylem, Horticulture, Hydraulic conductivity and Transpiration are his primary areas of study. In the field of Botany, his study on Woody plant, Photosynthesis and Tracheid overlaps with subjects such as Water flow and Water transport. His Xylem research incorporates elements of Cavitation, Biophysics, Embolism and Agronomy.

As a member of one scientific family, Melvin T. Tyree mostly works in the field of Agronomy, focusing on Species distribution and, on occasion, Plant community. His research on Hydraulic conductivity concerns the broader Ecology. His study in Ecosystem is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Habitat fragmentation, Biodiversity, Climate change and Niche differentiation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (88.46%)
  • Xylem (47.25%)
  • Horticulture (36.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2012)?

  • Botany (88.46%)
  • Horticulture (36.81%)
  • Xylem (47.25%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Botany, Horticulture, Xylem, Woody plant and Water stress. The Botany study combines topics in areas such as Agronomy and Plasticity. Melvin T. Tyree studied Agronomy and Species distribution that intersect with Seedling.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Shade tolerance and Stomatal conductance in addition to Horticulture. His Xylem study combines topics in areas such as Populus balsamifera, Cavitation, Biophysics and Osmolyte. His Cavitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hydraulic conductivity, Drought stress and Hybrid poplar.

Between 2007 and 2012, his most popular works were:

  • Tolerance to low leaf water status of tropical tree seedlings is related to drought performance and distribution. (153 citations)
  • Tolerance to low leaf water status of tropical tree seedlings is related to drought performance and distribution. (153 citations)
  • Tolerance to low leaf water status of tropical tree seedlings is related to drought performance and distribution. (153 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Ecology
  • Horticulture

Melvin T. Tyree focuses on Botany, Agronomy, Xylem, Biophysics and Seedling. His research on Botany frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Hydraulic conductivity. His research investigates the connection with Hydraulic conductivity and areas like Phloem which intersect with concerns in Vascular cambium.

His research integrates issues of Desiccation tolerance, Species distribution, Water content, Rainforest and Dry season in his study of Seedling. His study connects Desiccation and Dry season. In his research, Bur Oak is intimately related to Petiole, which falls under the overarching field of Photosystem II.
