Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Botany

Michael Kessler mainly investigates Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Transect and Species diversity. Taxonomic rank, Tropics, Biogeography, Vascular plant and Ecosystem are subfields of Ecology in which his conducts study. His studies in Species richness integrate themes in fields like Range, Epiphyte, Habitat, Endemism and Rainforest.

His Biodiversity research includes elements of Agroforestry, Land use, Land use, land-use change and forestry, Understory and Bromeliaceae. His study looks at the relationship between Transect and topics such as Polylepis, which overlap with Subspecies, Rosaceae, Altitudinal zonation and Cloud forest. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Species diversity, Rarefaction and Plateau is strongly linked to Elevation.

His most cited work include:

  • Climatologies at high resolution for the earth’s land surface areas (713 citations)
  • A community-derived classification for extant lycophytes and ferns (466 citations)
  • Multifunctional shade‐tree management in tropical agroforestry landscapes – a review (387 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Botany, Species richness, Fern and Biodiversity. His Epiphyte, Habitat, Range, Endemism and Abundance investigations are all subjects of Ecology research. His works in Genus, Polypodiaceae, Taxonomy, Polylepis and Dryopteridaceae are all subjects of inquiry into Botany.

His Species richness research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Transect, Vegetation, Understory, Species diversity and Rainforest. His research on Fern often connects related areas such as Flora. His Biodiversity research includes themes of Agroforestry, Ecosystem and Threatened species.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (57.28%)
  • Botany (33.44%)
  • Species richness (33.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Fern (26.63%)
  • Botany (33.44%)
  • Ecology (57.28%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Fern, Botany, Ecology, Flora and Species richness. His Fern study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Subtropics, Taxonomy and Range. His is involved in several facets of Ecology study, as is seen by his studies on Biodiversity, Habitat, Epiphyte, Ecosystem and Pollination.

Michael Kessler interconnects Vascular plant, Checklist, Community and Land use in the investigation of issues within Biodiversity. His studies deal with areas such as Endemism and Threatened species as well as Ecosystem. His Species richness research integrates issues from Niche, Transect, Vegetation and Species diversity.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Climatologies at high resolution for the earth’s land surface areas (713 citations)
  • A community-derived classification for extant lycophytes and ferns (466 citations)
  • Global trait–environment relationships of plant communities (143 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Botany

Ecology, Species richness, Biodiversity, Fern and Taxon are his primary areas of study. His Ecology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Biological dispersal. His work carried out in the field of Species richness brings together such families of science as Vegetation, Community, Habitat and Species diversity.

His work in Biodiversity addresses issues such as Range, which are connected to fields such as Stochastic modelling. His work on Asplenium as part of general Fern study is frequently linked to Polyploid, Genome evolution and Paleopolyploidy, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. Michael Kessler has researched Taxon in several fields, including Evolutionary biology, Genus, Tribe, Species complex and Convergent evolution.
