Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

Michael G. Ryan mainly focuses on Ecology, Ecosystem, Botany, Photosynthesis and Canopy. His study in Ecology focuses on Carbon cycle, Wood production, Primary production, Vegetation and Soil carbon. His Wood production research includes elements of Biomass, Productivity, Agronomy and Forest ecology.

His Ecosystem respiration study, which is part of a larger body of work in Ecosystem, is frequently linked to Poison control, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work deals with themes such as Hydraulic conductivity, Organic matter and Horticulture, which intersect with Botany. His Canopy study combines topics in areas such as Photosynthetic capacity and Irrigation.

His most cited work include:

  • Hydraulic Limits to Tree Height and Tree Growth (880 citations)
  • Temperature and soil organic matter decomposition rates – synthesis of current knowledge and a way forward (820 citations)
  • Evidence that decomposition rates of organic carbon in mineral soil do not vary with temperature. (818 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Agronomy, Botany, Ecosystem and Photosynthesis. His work in Ecology addresses issues such as Atmospheric sciences, which are connected to fields such as Temperate climate. His Agronomy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Eucalyptus, Primary production and Wood production.

His work carried out in the field of Primary production brings together such families of science as Soil respiration and Plant litter. His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Global warming, Global change and Wetland. His research in Photosynthesis focuses on subjects like Canopy, which are connected to Leaf area index, Transect and Forest floor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (46.52%)
  • Agronomy (35.53%)
  • Botany (33.70%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Agronomy (35.53%)
  • Primary production (22.34%)
  • Ecosystem (31.87%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Agronomy, Primary production, Ecosystem, Photosynthesis and Eddy covariance. Michael G. Ryan focuses mostly in the field of Agronomy, narrowing it down to matters related to Eucalyptus and, in some cases, Irrigation, Vapour Pressure Deficit, Silviculture, Carbon flux and Wood production. In his study, Hydraulic redistribution and Transpiration is strongly linked to Stomatal conductance, which falls under the umbrella field of Primary production.

His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Climate change and Terrain. The subject of his Photosynthesis research is within the realm of Botany. His Eddy covariance research is included under the broader classification of Ecology.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A multi-species synthesis of physiological mechanisms in drought-induced tree mortality (351 citations)
  • A multi-species synthesis of physiological mechanisms in drought-induced tree mortality (351 citations)
  • Global variability in leaf respiration in relation to climate, plant functional types and leaf traits (206 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Ecosystem
  • Botany

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Respiration, Xylem, Ecosystem respiration and Eddy covariance. His work in Climate change, Biome, Forest management and Temperate climate is related to Ecology. Botany covers Michael G. Ryan research in Respiration.

His work deals with themes such as Tropical climate, Forest ecology, Soil respiration and Growing season, which intersect with Ecosystem respiration. He works mostly in the field of Photosynthesis, limiting it down to topics relating to Biomass and, in certain cases, Primary production. Michael G. Ryan combines subjects such as Carbon dioxide and Atmospheric sciences with his study of Primary production.
